How to Style Velvet and not Look Like a Curtain

The weather is cold, and we need fashion that’s warm AND stylish. It’s time to nail it in all things velvet. That’s right, the trend we were in love with last year is officially making its grand return. 2019 is taking the trend to a whole new level, adding edgy 90’s inspo to classic autumnal hues like forest green, burgundy and mustard yellows. And we’ve got it all wrapped up. If you haven’t already invested, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our guide to all things velvet and how to style it without looking like your Gran’s curtains…

The Velvet Blazer

It’s time to nail it as a layer player this season, with the classic blazer. We are completely vibin’ off dark winter colours with the 90’s style twist. Team this with a pair of trousers and classic sneaks for a truly casual boss babe look, easily transformed to an edgy ‘out-out’ outfit with heeled boots and a clutch.

The Velvet Trousers

It’s time to go bold girls. Velvet trousers definitely give that party feel that actually looks like you’re ready to get back out there after all your festive partying. Whether you’re heading down to the pub for a casual sesh with the girls or glammin’ up for a big night out, you can make trousers perfect for any occasion.

The Velvet T-Shirt

Every babe needs a classic velvet tee in their winter ‘drobes. It’s the perfect go-to piece that instantly transforms your look. Inspire the casual slay with jeans and flats, or go all out party with a pair of vinyl trousers or a faux leather skirt. Enough said.

The Velvet Boots

Don’t get us wrong, we’re not over the heartache of packing away our sequin dresses and Christmas jumpers yet (although packing away the wrapping paper and sellotape until next year is a weight off the shoulders, amirite?) But if 2019 is all about jaw to the floor velvet boots, then we’ll get over it!
