Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! A little fun fact, I never liked Valentine’s Day until I became a mother. That is when Valentine’s took on a whole new meaning. It’s when I get to spoil my little girl with heart cupcakes, chocolate chip pancakes, and an abundance of stuffed animals that she doesn’t need. I absolutely love it now. I get to stare love in the face, kiss it, hug it, and lavish it with attention.
Velvet automatically has a romantic feel to it and, bonus, velvet is one of the warmest fabrics. This velvet Valentine’s Day dress is so soft, elegant, and sexy, but if you live in a cooler climate, you can opt for a long sleeve like this one.
Velvet has so many personalities to it. By changing out your accessories and/or layers, your velvet can be easily switched from day to night. The greatest tip I have for you when wearing velvet is this; start discretely and let your velvet be the main focal point. Velvet IS ALREADY a statement piece on its own. Let it do all the talking and downplay the rest of your look to keep the ensemble classy. Less is definitely more in this case.
