This win­ter, there’s one trend celebri­ties are fall­ing for: Vel­vet. The resur­gence of the quin­tes­sen­tial 90s trend dom­i­nated run­ways from Paris to New York this year. So who can blame style mavens back home for jump­ing on the band­wagon?

But vel­vet, say de­sign­ers, is a tricky fabric. So there are a few things to keep in mind be­fore you go for it. De­signer Gau­rav Jai Gupta says, “The trend is not for every­one. Vel­vet is a lux­u­ri­ous fabric and if not styled ap­pro­pri­ately, it can go re­ally wrong. The good thing is that it’s ver­sa­tile so you can wear it for for­mal dos or par­ties, but make sure you ac­ces­sorise right.”

Stylist Vikram Seth says, “Vel­vets are shiny so don’t go for bold lip colours — it’ll make you look gothic. Opt for nude lips and solid nail paints. For an evening soiree wear heels and if it’s a ca­sual event, you can even try sneak­ers.”
