The timeless elegance of velvet lights up the winter of 2022 (and there’s no need for special occasions!)

Velvet dress

Among this year's trends, velvet sparkles and among blazers, sweaters and skirts, a great classic cannot be missing: the evening dress

Not long ago we told you about the great comeback of the velvet blazer – especially in red Gucci by Tom Ford to recall the 90s, but not only – back to sparkle in our wardrobe to be worn every day. Yes, because if last year we saw rhinestones and glitter dominate the scene, this year elegance has a minimal and sensual appeal: two coordinates that make the velvet dress an urgent must-have for the evening. Without excluding that a lively short model, however, can be worn without waiting for the moon.

Long, midi and elegant velvet dresses: how to match the winter 2022-2023 models

Are you already imagining wearing a wonderful burgundy or green dress on Christmas Eve? Go back and look at velvet dresses from a decidedly different perspective: the latest diktat in fashion for a few years has been to normalize what we would probably preclude ourselves from wearing on some occasions. And velvet is one of those fabrics that we have always come to associate with Christmas, but which instead, thanks to its innate elegance, we can include in our daily evening wardrobe.

The long or midi model combined with a pair of décolleté with a sophisticated charm will be perfect, as always, with a pair of high or low décolleté, but if you want to dilute its natural elegant note, focus on models with slits and combine them with a pair of amphibians, boots or ankle boots: a look with a decidedly rock flavor, especially with new nuances. Purple is one of these, suggested directly by Tom Ford , which also revolutionizes the classic low-cut model, which covers the shoulders and focuses on a deep décolleté.

Bags and bijoux are the accessories that will further illuminate the sensual and magical effect that velvet has always suggested: black, gold and silver, they will give a glam and decisive touch to your evening looks. In fact, let's preserve long or midi velvet dresses for the evening, while we can reinvent shorts even during the day.

Short velvet dresses: how to wear them even during the day by choosing the "daily" nuances

Velvet is by its nature an elegant fabric with light-dark shades, which is why it is generally seen as an evening fabric. This year, however, there are not only the great classics: in addition to black, dark blue, fir green and red, there is also fuchsia , light green, yellow and blue, nuances that we can also wear at morning.

A lunch or an aperitif in the afternoon are the perfect opportunity to be elegant and chic but with a touch of vivacity that we can also enhance with a pair of ton sur ton tights or simply nude. For the most comfy shoes with a pair of Dr. Martens or Converse to rewrite grunge according to 2022 trends.
