Velvet is one of the hottest trends of the fall and winter seasons, while also being one of the easiest to wear. It comes in a variety of styles and colors and adds a touch of luxury to normal, everyday outfits. We recommend choosing just one velvet piece to wear at a time, unless you’re going all out in a pantsuit, especially since velvet looks so great mixed with other fabrics and textures. Below, you’ll find everything from daily basics to statement pieces that are perfect for the chilly weather ahead.

1. Statement-Making Jacket

Stunning. Gorgeous. Unforgettable. With descriptives like that, a jacket like this is sure to wow throughout the holiday season and beyond. Statement jackets are a great way to incorporate some velvet this time of year, too. From blazers to bombers, and everything in between, you can take pieces like these and add a touch of the crushed fabric to pieces you already own. We’re loving the simplicity of the model’s outfit. Basic black pants and a silky camisole are all you need to let this jacket take center stage. It would also look amazing with a simple little black dress and booties. Priced at $368.

2. Casual Chic Sweatshirt

It’s easy to imagine the feel of the luxe velvety exterior on these visually appealing pants. This is a true commitment to wearing the wintry textile, but a fashionable and practical one, nonetheless. Besides, a nice little pop of color in a sea of black is always a good thing, especially considering that these will pair well with so many of the neutrals you already own. We’d love to see this with a chunky cable knit sweater and knee-high boots, or dressed up with a pretty cami, fitted blazer, and heels or booties. Priced at $179.
