The midnight hour is approaching – and velvet is all we want to wear. Whether headed to a winter wedding, a cocktail party or dinner with friends, inspire your after-dark style with three velvet looks for evening invites, as seen in our new and exclusive video.
1. The Velvet Suit
As menswear influences make their entrance into AW18, we’re calling upon soft-touch velvets to lend traditionally masculine silhouettes something that feels more in the line with the new season. Comprising a classic blazer and tapered trousers, this two-piece is designed in plush burgundy, and comes softly-tailored for an androgynous feel. Style over a simple cami and black velvet accessories for after-dark opulence.
2. The Velvet Dress
This season, the velvet dress has undergone a renaissance. Crafted in mustard yellow and detailed with an asymmetric hemline, this sumptuous midi offers a fashion-forward alternative to the fitted, jewel-toned velvet dresses that we know and love. For evening invites, keep legs bare and wear with a pair of heels.
3. The Velvet Kimono
The simplest way to go from desk to dinner? Look no further than a statement kimono. Decadent in velvet devoré, this long-line design is patterned with peacocks and roses in rich colour palettes, and is finished with a wrap-around tie on the waist to create a form-flattering fit. Layer over camis and denim for a look that’ll translate easily from nine till nine.
