Velvet is an objectively great fabric that often gets overlooked when the weather turns warm. The soft fuzzy feel looks great, wraps you up like a blanket and keeps warm even though you’re wearing a mini dress in the middle of January pretending not to freeze. But while this feeling is decidedly not the goal in say, July, the fabric still has a summer purpose and we’re here to break it down for you.

 

Let’s start with two words: velvet swimwear. It may seem counterintuitive but many brands use an imitation velvet that’s waterproof and breathable. This ASOS brand bikini is a perfect example of something you could wear to the pool or separately as a top.

Next, we have the spaghetti strap mini. Sure, with a pair of tights and a jacket this Cinq a Sept dress might be suitable for a New Years party but let’s be real, we’re not trying to hide in this. We’re talking outdoor full look Instagram photos here.

Next, we have the wide leg pant. Again, these are a great winter look but add a crop top, some necklaces and a pair of sunglasses and we’re looking at easy, breezy summer velvety chic.

Then, we have a good ol’ fashion skirt. Wear it with a t-shirt, or go wild and pair it with another summer velvet item and it perfect. Snug as a bug in a summer velvet rug.

And last but certainly not least, please don’t put away your velvet shoes and accessories. Bags, headbands, platforms. These are all things that are seasonless and they need you this summer.
