If there's any fabric that spells luxe, comfort, and style it's got to be velvet. While its soft texture in bright pops of color may scream retro, you might be thinking, "Velvet in Manila heat? No way!" But we say, don't be intimidated by this bold fashion choice because there are so many ways you can rock velvet like a boss! So read on and let us change your "no way" into "yes way" when it comes to rocking velvet.

Pull a Hailey Baldwin and wear a cute velvet dress! Pair your bold piece with edgy boots and retro sunglasses for a hip and fashionable OOTD.

If you don't feel bold enough to rock a velvet dress, then opt for something small and simple like a velvet choker first! Choose one in a blush pink hue for a cute, dainty accessory.

If you're hesitant to try the velvet trend because of the heat, opt for an off-shoulder version! It's still just as luxe and fashionable minus the warmth. 


For days when the weather is unforgivingly cold or the air-conditioning in the library is too cold to bear, swap your university sweater for a chic velvet jacket and stay warm in style!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
