I think people are afraid of crushed velvet; they think it's super fancy or impossible to match.
I will respectfully disagree. Now please scroll down, I'll make this short and sweet.
I wouldn't let different materials like leather, velvet, and mesh frighten you. They match with more than you think they do and you don't need some edgy haircut to pull it off... or tattoos and a nose ring. I have 5 different velvet items in my closet and it doesn't need to be date night to wear them. ;) Just own it. You got this.
