Velvet isn’t solely restricted to after-dark invites. Deeply decadent and luxurious to the touch, the plush fabric is now being incorporated into the season’s key silhouettes, allowing its wearability to extend into daylight hours. From seventies-inspired suits to effortlessly easy tees, here are velvet pieces to wear all day, every day…
1. The Velvet Shirt
It’s time to rethink the utility shirt. Most commonly found in our off-duty wardrobes, this button-up classic has been updated for the new season in rose-pink velvet, lending touch of luxe to its otherwise casual aesthetic. Style yours with dark indigo denim and knee-high boots in soft black suede.
2. The Velvet Co-Ords
Whether worn together or separately, co-ords can be relied upon to add instant polish to everyday wardrobes. Staying in line with AW18’s indulgent mood, opt for a matching jacket in skirt in lavish black velvet, lavishly embroidered with metallic gold florals. Let yours take you from desk to dinner.
3. The Velvet Tee
Dress it up, dress it down: the velvet tee expertly blurs the lines between smart and casual. This season, trade in your jersey basics for a plush piece in luxe gold – we love how this key buy is slightly oversized and comes with a flattering v-shaped neckline. Team with black skinny jeans and meet your match with co-ordinating heels.
4. The Velvet Suit
The seventies provided us with scores of style inspiration – and the wide-leg trouser suit is proving to be one of the most iconic yet. Reimagined for the modern day, this season’s directional duo comes in crinkled grey velvet, and comprises a wrap-around jacket and softly-tailored trousers. Wear with a high-neck top and a pair of pointed shoes.
5. The Velvet Dress
How to bring bohemia into your AW18 wardrobe? Just add velvet. Nodding to nostalgic silhouettes, this plush tunic dress brings a free-spirited feel to the everyday, while still retaining its sense of opulence. Allow its embroidered neckline to take the focus with simple black accessories.
