When it comes to choosing a prom dress, it's not just the style and color you need to think about. You should also consider what material you want your dress to be. One unique choice you should contemplate is a velvet prom dress.

A Brief History of the Velvet

There is some uncertainty where velvet originated. Although many attribute velvet to Western Royalty culture, there's a lot of evidence to suggest that the material was invented in Eastern countries. Pieces of velvet have been found in China dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 B.C.E.) and the Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C.E. - 23 C.E.). Iraq and Egypt were also one of the first mass producers of velvet. Italy was the first European country to start producing velvet, and the material boomed during the Renaissance period. Velvet was associated with the wealthy upper class.

Velvet Dress Inspiration

The red carpet has seen plenty of fantastic velvet dresses. If you need some inspiration for your prom dress, we recommend checking out Shailene Woodley's plunging, moss green velvet dress at the 2017 Emmys. Or, Khloe Kardashian's long sleeve red velvet dress at Elton John's Oscar Party. For an elegant, formal gown, check out Lady Gaga's black, off the shoulder velvet dress at the 2016 Golden Globes.

Who Can Pull Off a Velvet Prom Dress?

Velvet is a very adaptable material that can come in any style. You'll be able to find velvet dresses as a pageant gown, formal gown, cocktail dress, or whatever style you prefer. Velvet is a very flattering material that coats the body. Plus size women don't ever have to worry about rocking a velvet dress. Just check out Danielle Brooks' in her blue velvet gown!

How to Style a Velvet Prom Dress

If you're choosing a velvet prom dress, we recommend you purchase some eye-catching accessories. Velvet dresses tend to come in a single color rather than a pattern. Whenever you're wearing a single color dress, it's a nice opportunity to add some contrast with your shoes, jewelry, or handbags.

Remember that a velvet prom dress is a unique choice. You may be the only young lady at the prom who is wearing this material! Feel confident and proud in your decision, and get ready for all eyes to be on you.
