You probably haven’t worn velvet since you were a kid. Now it’s time to resurrect the royal material–it’s being reincarnated on dresses, jackets and tops. Whitney Port, Jessica Alba are leading the way (along with Michelle Obama, last night on Oprah’s Christmas at the White House special).  so let’s follow along:

If you stick to one velvet item at a time, you’ll be fine. Let us guide you with these stylish velvet finds.

This tailored velvet blazer will dress up a pair of skinny jeans or provide a little extra coverage over a strapless party dress.

We love this velvet dress because it’s versatile enough to wear with heels or a fancy pair of ballet flats.
