Summer may be a few months away but there’s no harm in preparing for it! Instead of reaching for a typical two piece, why not try a velvet bikini?

Model Sahara Ray designed the perfect pink swimsuit:

The baby girl top in crushed pink velvet is $110 and the bottoms are $105.

There’s also a similar one on Asos.

For more coverage, Naked Wardobe make a velvet two piece called the Velvet Touch Bikini, available in a toffee and black color for $42.

PrettyLittleThing.com has a gorgeous pink velvet dress – perfect for a date night or an event. It’s flattering but still classy! I love the way Chantel Jeffries styled the velvet dress.

The dress is called the Cinda Bardot Plunge Detail Velvet mini dress and comes in pink, gold and black. It’s normally $35 but right now it’s on sale for $26.25.

Velvet tracksuits were huge in the 2000’s and guess what? They are back in style! I remember when all I wanted was a Juicy Couture track suit haha! Naked Wardrobe makes a stylish set in maroon – it features a cropped zippered hoodie with fitted bottoms. The set is on sale right now for $25 (original price is $42) – hurry before its sold out!

I professed my love for Sorella Boutique in the past and its still going strong. They have a wide selection of velvet pieces, but there were a few that really caught my eye. Their camel colored velvet choker is gorgeous and understated – and it’s only $15.

My favorite item from Sorella Boutique is the $52 grey chained velvet bustier belt. I am in love! It is the perfect item to make a simple T-shirt or sweater edgy and sensual.

Kim Kardashian started the trend of the corset and T-shirt and I am obsessed.
