The Sexiest Fabrics To Wear For Valentine’s

Valentine's Day Material

One of the first rules of fashion is that an outfit can’t just look good, but has to feel good too. At Discount Fabrics, we are all about how a material feels to the touch.

With the season of love upon us, it’s one of the few national holidays of the year where you can aim to seriously dress to impress. Whether you’re dressing up for someone special in your life or for your own enjoyment, Valentine’s Day can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.

For people thinking of trying their hand at fashioning their own Valentine’s outfit to fit them like a glove, we’ve outlined the sexiest fabrics to knock them dead with. 

Finding The Perfect Material

Our Favourite

Valentine’s Fabrics

Faux Vinyl Leather

A fabric guaranteed to show off your daring side. Faux vinyl leather is structured yet comfortable and hugs your curves in all the right places. Reminiscent of the T-Birds in Grease and Catwoman, faux leather is perfect for that bad boy/girl image but finished off with a smooth feel. Real leather is an expensive fabric historically equated to status and our faux vinyl leather simulates this for a fraction of the cost. It is also cruelty free!

For a sexy, sultry look, a bodysuit from head to toe using our faux vinyl leather will make for a Valentine’s Day to remember. Alternatively, faux leather shorts, skirts, or a daredevil leather jacket can also get pulses racing and its durability means an outfit with our faux leather fabric can last for many Valentine’s Days to come.

Crushed Velvet

Crushed velvet has a unique texture with a shiny and patterned appearance and it is wonderfully soft to the touch. Luxuriously soft and endlessly versatile, crushed velvet is packing a punch in both the fashion and interior worlds right now. 

This fabric is both sexy and classy, bringing a sense of Old Hollywood for those wanting to leave a little something to the imagination. Delivering opulence and glamour in equal measure, crushed velvet is one of the most decadent velvets produced. The unique production technique of crushed velvet gives its appearance and texture a very lustrous and inviting feel.

Velvet is a gorgeous choice for a red carpet worthy gown. The shine, the depth, the richness, the drama, all make this fabric perfect.

Silky Satin 

Synonymous with weddings, silky satin is one of the most sought-after fabrics, and it can be used for a huge range of romantic gifts. A favourite on red carpets for its versatility and flattering silhouette, silky satin oozes sex appeal with its smooth and glossy feel. 

Silky satin can drape over the body to highlight your best features and to subtly hide any areas you’re not loving with some careful ruching. If you don’t want to go too daring or revealing this Valentine’s Day, a dress or floaty midi skirt in a devil red is a great option to remain sexy yet demure.

Thanks to its shiny finish, silky satin is sure to be an extremely effective eye-catcher, which makes it perfect for special occasions. It is never out of fashion and is perfect for all seasons. It’ll keep you cool in the summer months and make a perfect extra layer in the winter. 

This chic and opulent fabric has a wonderfully shiny finish, which adds depth, movement and drama. Well known for being decadent and exquisite in equal measure, silky satin is the epitome of luxury fabric.
