The origin of Velvet Green Dress

The velvet green dress has a millenary origin and with a lot of history, today you will know the history of this mythical dress that has changed the style of women making it a fashion icon. Velvet fabric was used in the Far East in countries such as China and became more popular during the Middle Ages in the cities of Florence, Venice and Genoa in Italy, the European nobility wore velvet garments and was regarded as an expression of elegance and status.

However, during the 80s the singer Prince was the king of velvet by wearing colorful two-piece suits with this fabric in colors such as purple and green mainly. It is true that the color green is one of the most beautiful trends of this year, however the velvet green dress has inspired designers such as Tom Ford and the French fashion brand Celine to create the most avant-garde, classic and sophisticated designs to wear during this season.

The velvet green dress can be found in different designs such as the maxi, mini and midi, personally I prefer the midi and maxi version. You will look quite glamorous when wearing them, one of the advantages of velvet green dress is that it adapts to different types of bodies and occasions and you feel comfortable at all times! If you have a fashion emergency for the holidays and parties you can look for a glamorous and sophisticated style, yes i'm talking about the velvet green dress. 



 You can find the green velvet dress in different shades such as emerald green, olive green, moss green, military green and also with some necklines such as V-neck, long sleeves, short sleeves, halter neck, with cut out, straps, puffy sleeves and tie neck style. No matter what style you choose, wearing this dress will make you feel like in a classic Hollywood movie. Contemporary divas like Vanessa Hudgens and Monica Belluci have worn a velvet green dress in a rather sexy and formal way, and get inspired by their outfits!


Tips for styling Green Velvet Dress outfits

When styling a velvet green dress, always try to wear minimal makeup in order to compliment the dark aura of the dress. Remember a velvet green dress is exclusively for winters, do not wear it in summers.

  • Wear covered toe footwear while styling a velvet green dress outfit for a more elegant look.
  • If you are in doubt, wear your velvet green dress with black footwear and accessories, black and green is the best duo.
  • Try to wear a nice leather jacket or a coat, remember to wear colors such as black, white and brown.
  • Makeup can be done in bronze tones or with a thick black outline. You can also wear red lipstick or just lip gloss to avoid overloading the look.
