As party season approaches, luxe fabrics take centre stage – and little feels more fabulous than our silk-enriched velvet pieces. Discover how to wear it from head to toe (and what makes our velvet look and feel so special).
1. Try a new hue
Navy, blackberry, slate: velvet is traditionally seen in darker shades, but works beautifully in lighter hues, too, like the subtle mink of our new velvet T-shirt. In a bestselling bias-cut design, we like it best with a mix of textures to keep the look contemporary. Try pairing with a pleated midi skirt for a December party or black denim for informal drinks.
2. Discover classic cuts
Velvet is, by nature, an opulent fabric, but can veer easily into fussy territory. To ensure effortlessness, stick to classic cuts, like our silk-enriched tapered trousers. A brand-new style for us, they’re relaxed enough to work for every date in your diary – tuck in a silk blouse or layer a boxy knit for easy elegance.
3. Dip a toe into the trend
For low-key luxe, little beats our velvet trainers. Crafted from plush Italian velvet, they look gorgeous worn with boyfriend jeans or dresses and are padded for pure comfort. They also make wonderful Christmas gifts – for a little extra luxury, wrap up with our beautiful velvet coin purse.
Don’t consign velvet to just your wardrobe this Winter – our plush velvet sofas, stools and armchairs are blissful to sink into.
