Velvet has featured heavily on the runway this season and they say the trend isn’t going away anytime soon. This cheeky velvet number makes for an excellent alternative to the little black dress. The halter and fitted cut looks divine on. The midnight colour wasn’t too evening-ish either which makes it a perfect statement dress for the daytime too.
Here are my top picks for you to be able to embrace this season’s love for velvet. I’m loving the plum, blush, burgundy and burnt orange shades that are popping out.
Velvet is proving to be one of the most desired fabrics of the season and it isn’t confined to dresses either. These flared pants are high on my priority shopping list.
Like to mix up your textures? Dare to be different and go for a velvet look underneath a silk slip.
In celebration of all things velvet, I wore this velvet number at the MYER fashion show
If you can’t resist the luxurious allure of velvet either, try some of these shoe options to embody minimal chic no matter what the dress-code is!
These playful shoes do have a strong hint of 70s vibes but they are undeniably cool
Ok, certainly a little extravagant for a casual date night but I couldn’t go past this candyfloss pink number. While you would totally need the right occasion, it is a dress you wouldn’t be forgotten in. This show stealing number is masterfully ruched around the body. You can turn up the elegant vibes with lace-up stilettos or throw in some chunky black leather boots for a contrast.
Excessive bling can look a little dated with the velvet, so pair it back with really high statement accessories instead.
