How to Style Velvet and not Look Like a Curtain

Party season is almost here, which means only one thing. It’s time to NAIL it in all things velvet. That’s right, the trend you were in love with last season is officially making its grand return.

Aw17 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.

We’re bringing back a 90’s blast from the past, so get set for a high dose of nostalgia. Think: luxe drama, royal goddess and a mix of festive attitude.

If you haven’t already invested, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our AW17 guide to all things velvet and how to style it without looking like your Gran’s curtains…

Trust us, it is not AW until you own a pair of velvet over the knee boots, and luckily for you, we’ve got some.
