Velvet is definitely at the top of my list of favorite textures/fabrics. The texture adds such a beautiful luminosity to any color. Just look how rich that royal blue velvet skirt looks! Not only is velvet super pretty, but it's usually really comfortable and stretchy as well. Making it perfect for all body shapes and sizes. For this shoot, I styled myself and model friend, Katelyn Santana in coordinating outfits with the main focus being on our velvet midi skirts. Midi skirts have been my holy grail these past few months. I wear them EVERYWHERE! Literally. To class, to the club, to lunch, on dinner dates, etc. They can so easily be dressed up with a sassy cropped top (as seen on Katelyn) and pumps which help visually elongate the legs. Or they can be dressed down with tennis shoes (i.e. Adidas Superstars) for a casual day of classes or shopping. I love midi length skirts because they're not too short or long, which are two lengths that I find do NOT flatter my short legs.

*A rule of thumb to follow to keep your look from looking like you're doing too much is to BALANCE it out. For example, if you have a statement piece on the bottom i.e. these rich colored velvet skirts, keep it simple on top with a solid colored top (I prefer blacks, whites and greys.) Show a little skin on top since the majority of your legs are covered. Keep accessories to a minimum and let those hips sway girlllll!
