According to TribLIVE, velvet is appropriate during cooler seasons. While velvet was once reserved for the holiday season, it is acceptable to wear through late winter.
Velvet once added glamour and glitz to holiday dresses. However, apparel like velvet blazers or bomber jackets is acceptable to wear during the day and into the evening during colder months. Velvet pants and leggings are ideal for cooler evenings. Velvet accessories,such as purses and shoes, can be paired with jeans or casual dresses to create a laid-back look. The key to wearing velvet is to pair it with more casual pieces. For example, a velvet mini skirt works well with a casual shirt or blouse.
