Another season, another fabulous trend and another amazing excuse to revamp your Autumn/Winter wardrobe – we’re totally crushin’ on velvet and you should be too. Ladies, fill your basket, you’d be silly not too.

When it comes to this time of year, we love nothing more than a new trend, one that can transition you from one season to another without completely restyling your wardrobe. The velvet revival is major for Autumn/Winter ‘16 and we can see why. If you’re just looking to try something different, no matter your budget, this fabric will leave you feeling a million dollars. So swap out your lightweight materials and delve into this luxurious texture.

Oozing opulence the minute it hit the runways, our love for such fabric has only become stronger. Come on – who can resist the allure of velvet, especially when it hits the footwear department. The short density and soft shine, catches the light leaving us realising why we’re crushin’ on velvet so bad. There’s just something so flattering about it.
