3 WAYS TO WEAR: VELVET

Thursday, 10 November 2016

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that velvet is EVERYWHERE this season. It’s a timeless classic that instantly adds a touch of glamour to your outfit, but don’t be fooled – this stuff is seriously versatile. Want to introduce it to your wardrobe? Let us give you a few ideas…

DAY

The biggest mistake people make is thinking that velvet’s just for getting dressed up. So wrong! It’s perfect for day-to-day wear and ideal for keeping warm as the weather gets chillier. Wear it alongside denim and you’ve instantly got a smart casual vibe going on without looking overdressed.
We recommend pairing a velvet shirt with a denim skirt and boots for a comfy daytime look. Smarten it up a little with blazer, or take it down a notch with sneakers.

EVENING

Party season is just around the corner so why not get ahead on your go-to outfits? We’re loving velvet bodysuits right now, they’re perfect for busy days when you need to transform from a day to night look while you’re out and about.
If you’ve got some late afternoon plans and don’t want to overdo it, throw on your favourite jeans and pick a couple of simple accessories. For fancier evening plans, go all out and wear with a smart skirt or high-waisted trousers and you’re sorted!

NIGHT

Got some big plans and need a real showstopper of a look? We have got you covered!
Get glammed up, slip into a velvet dress, and you’re guaranteed to turn a few heads. Not only is the rich texture a quick way to class up your look, but it will keep you just the right temperature while you’re braving the cold to get to the next party. Throw a biker jacket on to get a grunge vibe going and don’t hold back on the bling.
