A luxurious fabric that drapes well, velvet finds use in stylish clothing, upholstery and decorations. However, this elegant cloth can be unflattering if clothes are not well tailored. Since it is a thick fabric, dresses should feature cinching at the waist to complement various figures.
Moreover, the fabric comes in colours that complement many skin tones. Finally, heavily patterned fabrics add bulk when used in clothing. Velvet dresses add a luxurious touch while remaining durable and comfortable.
