Kim Kardashian recently showed off her notorious curves in a hot green velvet Gucci wrap dress at an event hosted by Midori. Needless to say, the blogs and fashion sites were all abuzz the next day debating the hotness (or not-so-hotness) of Kimmie’s daring ensemble. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions on that, but Kimmie got us thinking – how exactly do you wear velvet? After all, it has been a key fall trend for the last couple of seasons. Velvet is incredibly luxe when done right, but it also has the potential to look costume-y and dated when done wrong. Thankfully, Kimmie is not the only celeb with a velvet crush (pun intended).
If you weren’t feeling her velvet green dress, maybe you’ll find a little more inspiration with one of the celebrity looks below.
We think the easiest way to incorporate velvet into your wardrobe is with a chic velvet jacket. We love Sarah Jessica Parker’s simple black velvet blazer in lieu of a regular black jacket. And, from the look of Kanye’s velvet tuxedo jacket, I think we can assume he was a fan of Kimmie’s dress.
If a velvet jacket is still too much for your taste, try a pair of velvet shoes! Charlotte Olympia‘s velvet kitten smoking slippers are a celebrity fave. We love the touch of luxurious whimsy they add to Taylor Swift‘s casual ensemble. And, we found a great replica for only $125.
