Dubbed the It fabric of the season, classic, luxe velvet should definitely be on your radar for autumn/winter. If you're wondering how to pull it off in a modern way, then rest assured that you're in safe hands. Our writer Daisy Keens has teamed up with Very to style three bangin' outfits that will give you some major style inspo...
Be warned: bold, printed velvet is making itself known on the high-street (think polka dot or star-printed fabrics). If you're feeling brave and want to jump on the printed bandwagon this season, tuck a patterned, velvet top into some statement, straight trousers (we love these shimmery ones from Very). See how they make that velvet top just pop?
The Modern Midi
A midi skirt might not be your go-to for a night out, but it seriously should be. As well as helping to accentuate your natural shape, a simple black midi with a high side split will leave you looking bang on-trend, especially when paired with a plush velvet top. Oh, and don't forget to throw on some oversized earrings for added effect, too. Slay!
Faux Fur's The Word
Yep, velvet is a hard fabric to pull off, but don't be afraid to mix-and-match it with other loud textures, like faux fur. For the perfect date-night outfit, layer a classic faux fur jacket over a fancy velvet top and midi skirt, and then sashay your way into the bar. We guarantee that your date will fall head-over-heels!
