Velvet

Velvet has recently had a resurgence and is the darling of the season. However, like cashmere, we have always had a soft spot for this luxuriously tactile material. You might only reach for velvet as an evening option, but we would recommend a rethink; velvet has become a viable daytime alternative. In fact one of our favourite pairs of trousers are velvet bell-bottoms from MiH that we team with a slogan or roll-neck jumper for a smart/casual look. Here are our tips for making the most of your investment velvet pieces.

Top Tips

  • Don’t save your velvet pieces for best – make sure you wear them in the day too
  • We think a good pair of velvet trousers are as versatile as a pair of leather leggings
  • When thinking about spending serious money on velvet, make sure it’s in a classic shade like black or burgundy
  • Don’t be afraid to match textures, for example glitter and velvet can be best friends
