If we had to pick one trend from the Autumn/Winter season that really stands out as a ‘must-have’ it would definitely be velvet – it’s everywhere and because it’s not an outlandish style, it’s something that everyone can try out.
Conjuring up images of fifteenth century vampires, ladies of the court and Goths with too much eyeliner; it might not at first seem like the most easy-to-wear trend but prepare to be surprised, velvet’s been given a massive makeover and from tutu style dresses through to gorgeous shoes, you can get this season’s style crush spot on.
Dresses are the obvious place to start for incorporating the trend and with the inevitable Christmas office party coming up, there are loads of great fab choices. Go fun and flirty with this velvet dress from Fearne Cotton, with adorable puff sleeves, or for something a little different why not step out in a velvet playsuit?
For something a little more glam, there are loads of lush, rich colours to choose from. This sexy red number will make heads turn at your Christmas do, or play it cool in a stunning teal skater dress.
For something a bit more full-on that has that ‘wow’ factor, why not try another of this season’s biggest trends: the maxi dress. This stunning red maxi is perfect for that show-stopping look and will make sure you are the centre of attention.
