The 90s have made a comeback – asymmetric tops, tie-dye prints, and flip-flops are just some of the mementos of the X-generation’s teenage years that we’ve seen return in 2019. Velvet evening dresses are another very welcome blast from the past.
Velvet Formal Dresses: Elegant and Luxurious with a Twist
A long velvet dress might be your wisest purchase when it comes to creating an inimitable party look. The way the fabric is woven makes this soft, luxurious fabric absolutely unique. Velvet is crafted on a special loom that weaves two pieces in tandem together. Then, the maker cuts the two pieces apart, creating loose tufts i.e. a pile effect, which is responsible for the softness of the material.
Historically, velvet was made of silk and was very expensive, which is why it is associated with royalty to this day. Velvet evening dresses are perfect for a wide variety of special occasions, including gala events, formal evening weddings, and official dinners. As velvet is one of the most delicate fabrics, your long velvet dress should not have to interact with the environment a great deal. It must not be worn in rainy weather.
Velvet’s lavishness and splendor make it ideal for luxury evening wear. Its texture is powerful, so remember less is more when styling it. Don’t pair it with velvet shoes or a velvet handbag and opt for understated jewelry. Shorter velvet dresses are suitable for less formal parties or a club night. You can wear a velvet jumpsuit to a semi-formal event.
Opulent Velvet Formal Gowns from Jovani and Blush
Jovani’s velvet evening dresses and gowns are ideal for any formal occasion, including weddings, red carpet events, galas, proms, and other ceremonies. The gowns are so beautiful that they can even be worn to a pageant or haute couture event. Our favorite long velvet dress by Jovani has a high neckline, beaded keyhole, and open back. It is a magnificent dress that would be a very smart choice for any special event. The immaculate neckline moves to a fitted bodice with a sizzling cutout at the keyhole. The effect of exposure is augmented by a strappy open back. To add a dash of sparkle, the whole dress is embellished with heat-set sparkly gemstones. The seamless fitted skirt slides down to the floor, ending with a slight flare.
When it comes to velvet formal gowns, Blush is one of the names that’s been on everyone’s lips for a while. It’s no wonder given how regal and striking their lush, soft two-piece mermaid gowns are. Their most beautiful one begins with a halter effect, transitioning to a gleaming bodice, a crystallized waistband, and a mermaid skirt gently floating down to the floor.
