Style Steals: October Velvet Crush

Happy Tuesday ladies! It’s Jessi from Team LC here with my latest Style Steals installment. If you’re just joining in, each month I highlight a trend or specific product at affordable price points. My mantra is that fashion should be accessible to all women. While I don’t consider myself the queen of thrift shopping (you need a whole lot of patience for that!), I can’t resist seeking out the best bargains—especially when I find an item that I can’t live without. This month I’ve had my eye on a fabric instead of a particular item…

I don’t know about you but I’ve been smitten with the crushed velvet trend. From chokers to dresses and even heels, this trend is hard to ignore especially when there are so many pretty pieces available. This luxe fabric brings a certain elegance to everything that it graces, and is a perfect way to elevate your wardrobe going into the holiday season. I know that it’s only October but it’s never too early to start thinking about all of the festivities that are quickly coming our way! If you’ve been hesitant to give velvet a try, I’ve put together a list of all of my favorite pieces donning the soft fabric. Plus, each item is budget-friendly and all under $100! Keep scrolling to see which items made the list. Trust me when I say you’re going to want it all…

Dresses

ASOS velvet dress

If you’re looking for the perfect party dress to wear throughout the holiday season, let it be a velvet one. The lux fabric elevates any outfit and will have you looking party pretty in no time. This kimono tie velvet plunge midi dress is sure to turn heads as well as any of the other dresses that I’ve added below. I’m just wondering why I can’t wear one every day…

Tops

Velvet Urban Outfitters cami

My inner 90s girl is so excited about these velvet shirt options. From camisoles to long-sleeved shirts and bodysuits, there’s something for everyone. I love how most velvet fabrics are thick enough to give you that extra layer of warmth throughout the next few months, too. This little lace and velvet cami from Urban Outfitters needs to make its way into my closet ASAP.

Pants

LC Runway Velvet Wide Leg Pants

Velvet has been on my radar ever since miss Lauren Conrad showcased these wide-leg trousers in her latest LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection. They’re versatile enough to follow you into the office or have a few after-work cocktails with your bests. If you’re unsure about the wide-leg silhouette, I’ve also included some of my favorite fitted options below…

Accessories

ASOS velvet choker

You’ve probably already been introduced to this season’s most coveted piece of jewelry: the velvet choker. Wear it on it’s own to make a statement or layer it with your favorite lariat or long necklace. Either way you really can’t go wrong! I love the shade of pink that this ASOS velvet choker comes in.

Shoes

Topshop velvet strappy heels

Last but not least, velvet shoes have definitely been having a moment. From heels to boots and the cutest ballet flats, there’s always room in your shoe closet for some velvet appreciation. These Topshop slingback sandals are waiting to make an appearance at all of your holiday festivities!
