Velvet Touch

Velvet is one of the most popular materials this Autumn Winter 2016-2017, that is a fact. So give your outfit a luxurious touch by adding some velvet! It is undoubtedly one of the season’s hottest trends. With gorgeous options hitting stores right now. Velvet is definitely going to become a must-have for everyone wanting to give a luxurious touch to an outfit.

The market is saturated with this rich, luxe fabric at affordable price points. You name an item, and it comes in velvet this season. Track pants, body suit, blazer, bralet? Yep, there's even a velvet version of that.

Lets start off by looking at a few velvet blazers.

This one is from Massimo Dutti and is £139. I love the rich colour which is a nice change from black.

Also available in black and this luxurious purple.

Or if you prefer something a bit more funky, this is a great jacket from Zara.

Velvet mustard jacket with belt, £89.99

And the trousers to go with them are £59.99

Or this beautiful, ornate jacket from Zara. Fabulous even just with jeans.

Embroidered velvet jacket, £59.99. It looks so much more expensive than that!

If you are a dramatic, you will love this one. Covers two trends in one - military and velvet!
