25 Very Luxe and Lustrous Velvet Dresses to Wear This Holiday Season
Due to its costly production and thicker weave, velvet was historically associated with nobility and reserved for special occasions.
While the fabric is more mainstream today, the best velvet dresses have become somewhat synonymous with the holidays. 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, colors, 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 a gala or black-tie event, while a ’90s-style crushed or panné velvet dress in a shocking hue is edgier and slightly more rock and roll. Given the thick, soft weave (and sometimes stretch) of the material, velvet dresses are also comfortable—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 the same sophistication and glamour but with a cool and updated spin. Below, a roundup of the 25 best velvet dresses to shop this season.
