While the fabric is more mainstream today, the best velvet dresses have become somewhat synonymous with the festive season. Since it’s one of the only materials with the ability to lend warmth and elegance, it’s a go-to winter essential and kept in rotation each season. While a velvet dress is a traditionally more refined style, modern interpretations play with textures, colours, and silhouettes and offer something for everyone. The lustrous texture of plush or royal velvet is one of the most traditional forms of the fabric, perfect for any event, velvet dresses with heavy thread embroideries are edgier – especially if you go for a loose or formfitting style.

So, before you resolve that a velvet dress is too old-fashioned for you, consider these modern silhouettes that are serving up sophistication and glamour but with a cool and updated spin. For sophistication with a polished spin, you can rely on embroidered dresses. Add a chic vibe to your outfit by sporting chunky jewellery pieces and jhumkas. Make an embroidered dress your outfit choice to put together an incredibly stylish and modern-looking off-duty outfit. Introduce heels to step up the oomph factor. Also, lace dresses suggest a mixture of sophistication and purity and are versatile enough to be dressed up or down for literally any event. Don’t crowd the intricacies of lace with fussy accessories – keep them to a minimum.

Choose heels for elegance and symmetry, and you will need nothing else!
