Wearing a thick fabric in the height of Summer might sound counter-intuitive, but bear with us. Summer velvet is most definitely a thing, and it can work for you too. The key is to choose a cut that works in warm weather, and that often involves a fair bit of flesh on show. Think cutouts, minidresses, plunge necks, thigh splits, and strapless, halter neck, and off-the-shoulder numbers. A strappy velvet maxi dress makes an interesting alternative to the usual wedding guest attire, and you can embrace this season's other trends at the same time, like tassels, fringing, and lingerie as daywear. Browse our picks here, and prepare to bring on the texture.
