Throughout time velvet has gotten a bad rap. Please don't remind me of the pair of extremely unflattering velvet pants I owned back in the day. Yikes! When done the right way velvet can add the perfect touch of texture to an outfit. Whether you choose to go with basic black or add a splash of color, velvet can be a very good thing.
