In this inaugural episode of Freestyle, Alyssa shares three easy-to-follow ways to incorporate velvet into your transitional wardrobe — think: dressing up jeans with bold-hued boots or trading in your go-to T-shirt for a plush top instead — proving that the material has what it takes to give any outfit a little oomph.
