Discover how we’re styling this season’s velvet trend in our How To edit

Work this season’s most sensual trend – velvet – into your wardrobe and master the art of contemporary romance with styles that work around the clock.


Sharply-cut tailoring continues to hold its unwavering spot as the ultimate day-to-night power pairing but this season’s riff comes down to what you wear it with. A simplistic T-shirt silhouette becomes anything but ordinary when imagined in black velvet and this clash of texture will add impactful verve to a traditionally polished look.


There’s one rule to mastering daytime excellence this season and that’s to take your texture in ample proportion. Clashing fabrications make the strongest impact, so simply switch out go-to denim for a luxe velvet alternative and style them with an oversized cable-knit. There’s something altogether modern about this cold-weather combination.


Fast-track your after-dark wardrobe to fashion-focussed new heights with the addition of AW16’s most relevant eveningwear trend. Deep, jewel-inspired tones offer a warm alternative to traditional black and accessories make just as strong an impact as a dress, whether worn as a stand-alone piece or as part of a head-to-toe velvet look.
