A seasonal selection of stunning velvet holiday dresses to create festive Christmas looks plus a green velvet dress outfit.
I can’t get enough of velvet holiday dresses this time of year. When it comes to festive Christmas dresses, somehow velvety styles always seem to blend the perfect amount of class and trend year after year. While I certainly don’t have any fancy plans because it’s 2020, wearing something festive feels like a small way to sink into one of the aspects of the holidays that I enjoy so much – the fashion, which comes second to the special time spent with family, of course.

A velvet dress outfit with a story to tell
A few weeks ago, I felt like a princess stepping out in this velvet Christmas dress! And by “stepping out” I mean “taking photos of myself with my tripod which ended up being far more embarrassing than glamorous, hahaha. Despite the lessons learned and story to tell, it was impossible to have a bad day wearing something this spectacular. The gown I’m wearing in the photos is a lavish (sustainably made!) velvet holiday dress from Divine Heritage that I borrowed. However, even super budget friendly velvet finds have a way of looking luxurious like the under $30 velvet dress I styled previously. The moral of the story is, definitely be sure to browse Target holiday dresses for affordable hidden gems! You’ll find options for a variety of budgets within the click to shop images below.
Retailers know that the eye-catching texture and soft, plush feel of velvet and velour fabrics can’t be resisted around the holidays, so there’s never a shortage of styles to choose from. With the holidays being a bit different than usual and more casualized this year, velvet leggings can keep things comfy but festive at home while even the simplest velvet top can easily turn jeans into an elevated outfit.
If you’re having a dressier gathering at home or you’re one who likes to dress up for the occasion simply because it makes you happy, a velvet dress is certainly always a worthy wardrobe addition. While fewer people than usual will probably see you flaunting one of these styles this year, you can trust that these are classic, timeless, and will be appropriate holiday dress choices in your closet for years to come!

Green velvet holiday dresses
Sadly, the dress I’m wearing in these photos is from a Divine Heritage collection last year and isn’t available anywhere, but I did round up the best green options for holiday dresses in velvet below!
Red velvet Christmas dresses
While I’m a sucker for the jewel-tone look of a green velvet dress, I’m always torn between the two colors because I red style can be repurposed for Valentine’s Day, too!
Other elegant velvet dresses for women
Velvet holiday party dresses certainly don’t have to fall in the traditional red and green categories. Navy, black, purple pink, blue, and burnt orange styles look equally as elegant and can be styled for Christmas and beyond!
