Va-va-velvet is what we’re loving these days. Cardi B‘s fuschia Nicolas Jebran dress from the 2018 MTV VMAs has totally set the tone for our future evening looks. The alluring trend was also seen on Amal Clooney earlier this summer and now because of these style savvy celebs, we’re inspired to stock up on velvety designs!

Try it yourself with a simple day-to-night look. The Shop With Us team spied this Chelsea 28 Velvet Mididress and we cannot stop swooning over its rich navy shade.

A wrap style, conservative V-neckline and fluttery sleeves create a soft look while the dark navy provides a luxe finish. Wear this mididress with mule slides during the day and slip into bejeweled heels for a sparkly touch at night.

If the deep blue isn’t your cup of tea, then go for this classic festive red velvet version that will carry you from fall and into the holiday season with the right layering.

Sizes run from X-Small to XX-Large. Reviewers noted that the velvet fabric is a soft, comfortable fit and a good style choice for fall or winter weddings. However, many revealed that the dress runs a tad large so you may want to order one size down.

Bring a little Cardi B and Amal Clooney style to your wardrobe and grab the Chelsea 28 Velvet Mididress for $129!
