You already know velvet is an AW staple right? Of course you do, what you might not know is that the fabric everyone is crushin' on has had a bit of a makeover. This time around you'll see velvet in a new light... don't ditch the dress, that's taking it too far, but do pick up these updates too. You won't regret it.
All over the catwalk and heading straight into our wardrobe, the velvet suit will be your new favourite double act. Go for a soft unstructured jacket or a sharp tuxedo shape, wear with a borrowed from the boyf shirt and bootlace tie. So slick you'll slide right to the top of the style charts.
Not feeling all over velvet? Don't worry about it girl, this AW, one of the coolest wears to wear the trend is on your feet. From barely there beauties to block heel pumps, you can't really go wrong, but we're all about the velvet boot; extra points if you pick a retro shade like olive green or ruby.
