Velvet is rich and sumptuous. Once was so pricey, only royalty could afford to have garments made from it. Fortunately, those days are long gone and velvet pieces are readily available. Though it comes and goes on the runways, velvet never really goes out of style. Whether it's a girly fit-and-flare dress, a tailored vest, or a pair of ankle-length skinnies, let this be the year you add velvet to your wardrobe.
