In case you blinked and missed the first two months of the year like us, here’s your friendly reminder that it’s now autumn!
And if you hadn’t noticed, this season’s hottest trend is velvet. It’s everywhere, and we mean e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. Spotted on every runway from Paris to New York, our favourite 90’s trend has made a comeback in a big way… we bet now you’re glad you kept that velvet dress in your wardrobe all these years!
We’re sharing the top 5 ways you can incorporate this lush fabric in your life.
Slip into something comfortable
A simple velvet dress is your must-have this season. Pretty and effortless, it’s sure to suit every occasion. For an edgier look, pair it with a simple white tee and slides. Alternatively, velvet jumpsuits are perfect for those cooler evenings and look gorgeous dressed up with a pair of stilettos. Tip: Limit yourself to one item of velvet per outfit. It should act as your statement piece – don’t overdo it!
Be bold with a bedhead
Don’t limit yourself to fashion; we weren’t kidding when we said this trend was everywhere! Add a touch of luxury to your home with a statement velvet headboard. Go for bold in rich, jewel tones like navy, teal and ruby.
Compliment any outfit with a funky velvet accessory! If you’re wanting to dip your toe into the trend first, aim for an elegant clutch or a hair scrunchie – it’s is all you need to rock velvet this season.
We are LOVING the sudden emergence of velvet boots. With so many colours and styles to choose from, they’re the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe. Pair them with a simple outfit like jeans and a t-shirt for the ultimate pairing of street chic.
Get cushion comfy
Add some ‘cosy’ to your room by investing in a few velvet cushions. An easy addition to make to your living space, we’re especially loving blush tones in pink and grey for a luxe yet feminine look.
