Velvet is one of the hottest trends right now, and also one of my favorites. I especially love it for the holiday season! There’s just something about velvet that looks so posh and luxurious. This velvet applique dress from Forever 21 is no exception. Y’all know I love me a good floral, so that combined with the velvet makes this dress a perfect 10.

I styled it with a chic pair of strappy heels and my go-to black handbag for a look that’s perfect for a holiday party! Since I was going for more of a festive feel, I had to glam up my makeup to match. I used the NYX contour palette to contour my cheeks and went with a brown and gold smokey eye complete with fake lashes. I finished off the look with a NYX liquid lipstick in the color ‘Soft Spoken’, which I have been loving lately.

While I do think this dress would be great for a fancy affair, it’s something that could easily be dressed down with a leather jacket, booties, and a more natural makeup look for a fun night out. And since it’s from Forever 21, you can’t beat the price! Shop the look (complete with makeup products) down below!
