Super-chic ladies: are you ready for the inevitable upsurge of invites? It’s Christmas party season and we are counting down the seconds until we can shimmy into our showstoppers. This season, it is ALL about velvet, and we are crushin’ hard.
From bodycon dresses, to louche PJ suits, and to-die-for outerwear, all the key pieces have received the velvet treatment for AW16 – injecting an instant hit of glamour into your night-out wardrobe. The decadent fabric oozes with opulence, making it a natural night-out option. Plus, this trendsetting textile was once reserved for royalty, and as if we’d pass up a chance to be a velveteen Queen!
We’re all over the golden shimmer of our figure-hugging party dress, which also comes in soft grey and femme fatale black, so you can get #squad ready. And there’s not a girl we know who isn’t lusting after the gorgeousness of our super-sumptuous, midnight blue padded coat. Team this must-have with an extra helping of velvet, if you dare, or throw it on over a simple LBD to let the jacket do all the talking.
This throwback-fab’ definitely has an air of 90s to it, so be sure to get in on those vibes with a spaghetti strap or two. Our blush pink jumpsuit delivers all the goods on this front, just slip on some simple sandals to finish the look. Babe galore!
And, as if this season’s lush look couldn’t get anymore luxe, we’ve also got the classiest little ensemble coming through in midnight blue, deepest black, and emerald velvet too, in the form of a two-piece pyjama suit – and it is divine! We’re teaming ours with silken, lace-trimmed camisoles, and our finest boss-woman attitude.
If you’re subtler social bae, you can still get your glam on without with going to town on the look, with velvet accessories. The fabric of choice blesses barely-there sandals, ankle boots, and ballet flats to get you on the right path to velvet dreamland, while handbags, clutches, backpacks and chokers all await in their velvety glory too.
And it literally does not stop there. Just before you think you’re completed swathed in gorge new threads, you should know: we also have totes beaut velveteen lingerie too!
