Velvet is so perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to wear for Christmas or for NYE, then velvet might be the answer! I love it for winter in general because it is classy yet cozy. Unlike lace and other "festive" materials, it actually keeps you warm, which is a necessary bonus right now! I remember my mom dressing us in velvet dresses as kids and its cool how its still so beautiful and "in."
