December Looks: Velvet!

The big new trend right now has got to be velvet! So many stores are stocking up on their velvet dresses and there is really no reason why not. It is such a fall/winter material and the sheen of velvet makes any outfit pop. It is perfect for the festive season or to dress up a classy outfit. 

The recent trend for dresses also comes in the form of skinny straps and dip backs. This makes it perfect to wear over a shirt on colder days or if you just don't feel like showing so much skin. 
They can be dressed up or down with sneakers but I personally think that they go great with strappy heels and over the knee boots - both of which I lack in my closet so I just wear them with my buckled booties.
The back of this dress is seriously my favorite because of the exposed criss cross design but it is also hard to wear a bra with it so I'm glad the shirt under a dress style is a thing for now. 
You can definitely wear short sleeved tees under instead of long sleeves like I did but I think high necklines is what you should be looking for when styling your tees with the slip dresses. You don't want the necklines to be too low and distracting from the dress' neckline. 
Another fun way to wear velvet is to find similar colored tops and bottoms to make them into a two piece set. Off shoulders are so girly and velvet just makes it all the more classy.
