A Touch of Velvet

When I say the word "velvet"? What do you picture? I don't know about you but to me, the word reminds me of all things luxurious, glamourous, and most times, expensive. However, lately I realized that velvet can also be something chic, poise, but not necessarily budget-breaking. That's when this local brand called Velvet comes in. It may be called "velvet", but none of their pieces are made of the material. Instead, the line uses a mixture of comfortable fabrics suitable for your everyday wear. From draped cardigans, minimalist dresses, and even a leather satchel, you'll be able to satisfy your daily needs in this webstore.

cardigan and dress (worn as top) both courtesy of Velvet

if cardigans or dresses aren't your thing.. here's some other favorite combinations I pieced together from Velvet's latest collection


if you think leather = tough. think again. This Adam Leather Skirt is the opposite of tough. I'd pair it with the white top and carry their Hendstridge envelope bag as a clutch for a day look.


if you want to give colors a try, pair this Jaden mustard yellow blouse with Monet brown shorts. this yellow is vibrant enough, but not too vibrant that it might make you self concious. still too bright? wear it with the Sharonne cardigan im wearing !

i love velvet because of their basic casual pieces, i have a lot of tees from velvet. you are so right that they are suitable for every day. you look fabulous; love the color combination if the red and blue. the neutral cardigan matches perfectly with the bright colors. i have never seen a birkin bag with neon color, but i love black and neon, makes it a little bit more exuberant and interesting

Miy said...

'velvet' makes me think about something very soft and touchable.. and seems like I can't get enough of touching its delicate texture.. velvet was what my childhood dream dress made of.. hehehe..

That Velvet's red dress sure look very soft to touch! adore!

Their collections are so stylish and chic and simple - love them!
Also, I adore the way you wore a cardigan as a skirt - great detailing!

Isa said...

Amazing ! I love this look! ;**

Laura Tenshi said...

I love the color blocking here and love the jump shot ! Hyped.
I think it's such an interesting concept, the name of the brand is Velvet and yet they don't use this fabric in their collections.
The clothes look fantastic, it's definitely a brand that will make a name for itself in the industry.
