Velvet is making a comeback. Though it’s always been a tricky fabric, if you choose the right colors and shape, it can look pretty classy. Plus, it still looks warm and winter-appropriate. Here’s how to avoid looking too old-school.

Check the gallery below to see how the celebs did it.

Go Beyond Black: “Velvet is fantastic in rich gem tones. This winter, with all the reds, plums and pinks, velvet is a perfect fabric for those classic brights.”

Accessorize: “Imagine a great string of pearls, some vintage Art Deco jewelry, big rings, marcasite and strands of long necklaces.”

Invest In A Jacket: “Every woman should have a great velvet jacket in her wardrobe. She can wear it almost like a tuxedo jacket with a ruffled blouse or very crisp white shirt. But she can also take a velvet blazer and team it with jeans.”

Pants: “Velvet pants are lovely, but you need to be careful about the friction caused between the legs when walking. It can ruin the nap of the velvet.”

Take Baby Steps: “Think about velvet accessories if you’re not ready to commit to a velvet blazer or top, like velvet shoes, boots — even a scarf.” GET THE REST HERE!
