After a fashion hiatus that lasted a good few years, velvet has been back in vogue for several seasons now and we couldn’t be happier.
Why? Because the super-soft fabric has been gradually evolving and where once ruched dresses and mini skirts ruled, now tailoring has come to the fore.
In short, velvet is the cooler alternative to glitter for party season, but it still looks suitably festive – what’s not to love?
