There are some fabrics that are often associated with the holidays and plush velvet, is one of them. And if you're looking to bring a fresh style into your lineup for the impending festive party season, then this velvet Farm Rio dress is a great place to start. Already a favorite among celebrities, the multi-colored, printed dress brings an eye-catching twist to a timeless wrap dress silhouette.
Regina Hall recently wore the colorful Rainbow Jaguar Velvet Dress to the ACLU SoCal's Annual Bill of Rights dinner, while the wrap style was also spotted on model Behati Prinsloo (via Instagram stories) and actress Amy Smart earlier this month. And given the dress combines both seasonal-favorite hues with the next-level of animal print — which includes the entire cat instead of just the spots — it's easy to see why the frock has already garnered so much attention.
Priced at $400, this Farm Rio dress is not like the other solid, jewel-tone styles hanging in your closet. Featuring bold colors like mustard, purple, teal, red, and more, the dress has kimono-style sleeves, a plunging V-neckline, and a beaded tassel side-tie closure that adds a luxe feel. While some elements of the design are more daring, the fact that the dress has a classic wrap shape with a longer hem, makes it easier to wear and more versatile than you may first think.
When it comes to wearing this dress more casually, consider matching it with a set of boots in a solid color (Farm Rio went with a stark white set) or paring it back with all-white sneakers. To comfortably transition this piece into the cold-weather months, you can also layer a thin black turtleneck underneath.
Meanwhile, for cocktail parties and formal occasions, elevate the look with a set of chandelier statement earrings and barely-there metallic sandals. Of course, if you want to highlight a color from the dress a little more, slip on a heel in any one of the shades used within the print.
