How To Style A Velvet Dress: Mother/Daughter Edition


Hi girls! Happy JanuARIE 1st! If you get this reference, I love you. Today’s post is special as my mom has joined me in styling crushed velvet for the new year! I’m slowing but surely convincing her to create a blog focusing on fashion, beauty and life over 50. If you think she should just go for it – make sure to leave her a comment or DM on her instagram page! I know how scary it can be to publish your first blog post so let’s give her a little encouragement to press publish on her first post!

My mom and I have shared clothes for years. Although I’m 5’10 and she’s 5’5 (and a half – she says the “and a half” matters ;)) we’re able to share most dresses and tops. I thought it would be fun to show how crushed velvet is a fashion trend that can work for any age! In the pictures we’re wearing the exact same dress (FYI it’s only $12 so grab it quick!). I love how it compliments both of our body types. I think I’ve gotten her on the crushed velvet bandwagon!

Shop My Look:

I styled my grey crushed velvet dress with black over the knee boots (super comfortable and will stay up!) , my current favorite black tote and a bold red lip (in shade fashion legacy).

Shop My Mom’s Look:

My mom styled her pink crushed velvet dress with her dress with grey booties (she only wears the most comfortable shoes!) which are on sale for under $50! They come in four colors and are so versatile! She wore a few of her favorite necklaces including an angel wing necklace (similar necklace here) and horse shoe necklace (similar necklace here).

Are you into crushed velvet? How would you style it?
