Could Velvet Leggings Be Your Go-To Jeans Substitute?

Yep, it’s that chilly time of year! Say goodbye to bare legs and too-thin sheer tights and embrace a warmer, cozier, and trendier option – velvet leggings! The texture, the sheen, the luxe wintry feel – velvet leggings are a great addition to your winter wardrobe since they’re completely opaque, so they can serve as pants with your favorite sweats and longer blouses for a stylish, festive alternative to jeans, but they’re thin enough that you can layer under dresses and mini skirts for a cold-weather translation of your favorite short-hemmed styles. Go classic with not-so-basic black, or play up your wardrobe with seasonal tones like plum, navy, or emerald. No matter how you rock them, make sure you rock them with confidence – there’s no room to be shy with these figure-hugging, attention-grabbing bottoms!

Fall Trend Alert! Look Sleek In Skinny Velvet Jeans

It’s no news that velvet has come back in a big way. But instead of playing it safe with the revisited trend by dabbling with vests or accessories, try going all out this fall with a pair of skinny velvet jeans. Initially, the idea of velvet pants may conjure up old memories of the tacky forest green 2-piece outfits your mom used to dress you up in come Christmas time, but I’d never steer you wrong, right? Velvet skinny jeans are a great way to incorporate the fabric into your fall wardrobe in a way that’s not dated and still looks young and fresh, yet sophisticated. They give a little night-time dressy feel to your average denim, yet are a little more laidback than slacks. Plus, the fact that they’re skinny keeps them sleek, chic, and on-trend. Transition gradually with a more subdued black pair, or if you’re ready for a more pointedly fall-festive color palette opt for a military green or aubergine!
