18 Super Soft Velour Pieces Your Winter Wardrobe Didn’t Know It Needed

There's more to velour than just a tracksuit.

Originally Published: 

With the holiday party season and cozy winter dressing upon us, ditch the velvet options and go for comfy velour pieces. Luckily, there’s plenty of shopping suggestions beyond just a Juicy Couture tracksuit that are both polished and super soft to wear, whether your plans involve hitting a string of festivities in one night or staying in for a low-key hangout.

Keeping you warm while also offering a luxurious texture, along with just a slight nod to the popular 2000s trend, velvet’s sister fabric is made for your holiday and cold-weather looks. Plus, it’s the ultimate choice for comfort-dressers. Your elegant midi dress, which we've found in a bright and cheery yellow from Stine Goya, is as plush and comfy as your favorite Sunday-night sweatshirt. From puffer jackets to lingerie sets, velour now comes in all forms and fits that you can seamlessly add to your winter wardrobe. And if you still want to wear a velour tracksuit in 2021, there are plenty of modern-day versions from SKIMS, Suzie Kondi, and Reformation. (Though, we included an updated, blinged-out style from the OG, too.)

Below, all of the velour pieces you need and more for your scrolling and shopping pleasure.
