How To Style The Velvet Tie Dress with Simplyteee

Velvet has been making a strong comeback over the last few months – just in time for the holiday season! In rich colors & cool cuts, our velvet assortment is versatile & and easy-to-style. We love velvet because it’s such a statement fabric – you don’t need to try hard when you’re wearing velvet because it speaks for itself. One of our favorite velvet pieces from the latest collection is the AEO Velvet Tie Dress. A wrap silhouette and butterfly sleeves make it the perfect holiday dress. Tina from Simplyteee styled the Velvet Tie Dress in a super casual, cool-girl way (and we can see this look working anywhere from your office party to family dinner!). See what inspired Tina’s look & shop her look below.

MEET TINA:
“My name is Tina and I’m the creator of simplyteee, a Toronto based blog featuring my love for fashion, beauty and travel. I started this journey about a year ago as a creative outlet. The idea seemed intriguing and challenging, and I was excited at the opportunities it could lead me to! I take comfort over everything, and my personal style is usually a reflection of my mood. Offline, you can find me binging on Netflix or indulging myself with good eats.”

WHAT INSPIRED TINA’S LOOK:
“I have been obsessed with velvet lately and am so happy the 90s are still making a comeback! This dress is perfect for the holidays and is also a great layering piece that can be dressed up or down. I decided to keep it simple and keep the focal point on the dress. As with most of my outfits, I truly believe less is always more.”
