If you expected this story to be a guide on how to wear velvet, we’re sorry to mislead you. However, consider this: You can wear velvet any way you’d like this season. Whether that means a fuzzy bomber jacket in the fall or a cozy pair of thigh-high boots in the winter, there’s no need to feel any trepidation about embracing the plush.

The nice thing about this trend is that it comes in nearly every iteration, which means you can make it a major or minor part of your outfit. Want to keep the velvet low key? Carry around Clare Vivier’s little pouch, which is served up in a delicious mustard hue. Want to pack a punch in your velvet? Slip into Loeil’s pink slip dress, and don’t forget to tie the matching skinny scarf around your neck. Looking for something in-between? Tibi’s white blouse should do the trick–it’s a welcome update to the classic white button down.

Not only will a dose of velvet add some texture to your look, but this fabric is sure to keep you warm through winter’s chill. And that, my friends, is what we call a healthy investment.
