Velvet is one of the hottest trends for Autumn/Winter 2016 and the slip-on dresses are going to be the most common when it comes to see the trend in action. Who can resist the allure of velvet? The fabric spells nobility and royalty and at times nighttime seduction. One of the most luxurious fabric available in the market, it created quite an impact at the runways.
I have been wanting to style a look featuring the velvet dress for quite some time now and I finally found the perfect slip dress at H&M! Layered over a casual white high-neck crop top, the look can very well be worn for a daytime event. Needless to say, the deep cut neckline might look super hot on Rihanna but in our country will stir quite few controversies (not that I give a damn!). But if you want to flaunt a slip dress, the best way is to layer it over a t-shirt, simple and flawless.
The one thing to always keep in mind though is to always wear well ironed velvet clothes as crumpled velvet can make the outfit look cheap and drab. Also, stick to darker hues like black, burgundy, emerald green, charcoal grey and navy blue. Keep accessories to a minimum and you should be rocking this trend flawlessly!
