How to wear velvet leggings

There is a special love between me and the velvet. It goes way back to the burgundy velvet I used to cover my piano when I went to school. In short, the piano is no longer with me, but every time I see someone wearing velvet, I can hear from memory playing the piano in my head. That’s just one story that comes to mind when I decide to write this blog post about the velvet leggings. Because of their unique look, they are surprisingly easy to style. I have rounded up some of the best ways to wear velvet leggings for you. Let’s look at them now.

I know some people are not very familiar with wearing velvet leggings. Maybe it’s the soft fabric that makes them feel insecure, or the shape that shows the curves of the legs too transparently. So I want to start the list with an outfit that is extremely easy to pull off, as if you were all wearing black jeans. This is an outfit that consists of a black long sleeve top, black velvet leggings, oxford shoes and a knitted scarf. The velvet leggings are not particularly noticeable in the outfit. They just add a bit of depth with their unique texture.

Now let’s move on to some outfits that actually make the velvet leggings look more obvious. For example, wear a long chiffon blouse with green velvet leggings.

For example, you can wear the leggings with a black sweater dress, a white wool coat and black ankle boots for a chic business casual look.
