STYLE TREND – VELVET

Velvet – is it like marmite? Do you love it or hate it? Well I love it, I absolutely bloody love it. There isn’t really a velvet season, but if there was, it would be now, the lead up to Christmas.

Dark autumnal tones or lighter duskier colours, I’m not fussed how it comes, give me velvet and I’m happy!

How many times can I say Velvet in this blog post?!

I’ve got a few new velvet pieces and this dusky pink blazer is one. I love mixing textures and it is such an easy piece to add to your wardrobe. You could wear this over jeans and a tee, a casual dress, an evening dress, or trousers and a tee like me. A great versatile piece which will see you through the season and then you can get it out again next year because every winter, velvet will always come back!

I’ve linked my favourite velvet pieces on the high street right now below, I think the high street does velvet SO well and it always looks so much more expensive! I recently bought 2 velvet bags from Primark, a black one and a mustardy sort of colour, they were £7 each and I’ve had so many compliments on them and I love them! So if you aren’t feeling a velvet piece of clothing, go for a bag or pair of boots?

    I love velvet! (It’s like liquorice right? and I love liquorice haha!) I specifically like that you’re rocking pink velvet – it looks amazing on you and I like that you’ve made it very wearable for the day!

    A photo of this outfit on Instagram brought me to your blog – absolutely in love with this outfit!! And found the photo just in time to luckily be able to order perhaps the last blazer in my size :), so in love with it! Think will have to order the black if they still have it in my size! haha
    Love the chicness and cheekiness of this outfit, suits your style so perfectly!!! Cannot wait to see the blazer in another outfit! 🙂
