The resurgence of ’90s trends in recent years has placed things like overalls, windbreakers, chokers, and scrunchies at the forefront of contemporary fashion. However, nothing’s had a style renaissance quite like velvet. The quintessential fabric of the ’90s can now be found adorning everything from booties to jumpsuits.
Oh, and bridesmaids dresses.
Not only are they more unique (especially compared to the likes of chiffon, silk, and tulle dresses), but your bridesmaids will almost certainly be able to wear them again. Velvet dresses are also particularly good choices for winter and fall weddings!
