For every day and for a New Year’s party: we choose a stylish dress from the main material of this season – aristocratic velvet.
Celine, fall-winter 2020
For many, the end of November and December will be very, very busy: before heading out for a long weekend, it is important to finish all work tasks, buy gifts for friends and family and carve out at least one evening to find the perfect outfit for the New Year’s party. The most versatile solution for this winter will be velvet dresses, which look restrained and strict in everyday looks, and luxurious and elegant in evening looks.
Emporio Armani Fall Winter 2020
Regardless of length, color and style, all velvet dresses are fraught with a slight touch of vintage: in the 1960s, Audrey Hepburn, Faye Dunaway, Veruschka and other style icons loved to wear them, complementing the images with pearl necklaces, high gloves and small hats. This season, you shouldn’t follow the trends from the past unquestioningly: they can be used as a source of inspiration, and not as detailed instructions.
Saint Laurent, fall-winter 2020
Dresses with a wrap or dress-shirts in black, brown, wine or deep blue, which are ideally combined with silver and gold jewelry, will look best in everyday and office wardrobe – but it is also better not to overdo it with them and limit yourself to a pendant on a long chain, a pair of large earrings or one bracelet. But in the choice of shoes there are no prohibitions: wear dresses even with leather boots with high soles, playing on contrasts, even with ankle boots with stable heels, if desired, highlighting the waist with a belt of the same color.
David Koma Fall / Winter 2020
For New Year’s parties, which is just over a month away, shorter options are also suitable: for example, like David Koma – with an open shoulder line and embroidery, or like Khaite – with transparent fabric inserts and a fluffy hem. Sandals with thin straps, ankle boots or stocking boots, which are back in fashion at the beginning of the season, will be an ideal complement to such outfits.

In fact, buying a few velvet dresses is not necessary at all: rely on more discreet models that are suitable for a business meeting during the day, and at the end of the day, with shoes, accessories, bright makeup and hairstyles, they can easily turn into an outfit for a date or a party – 7 Look for the perfect models that will make your wardrobe even more interesting in our selection.
