5 Ways To Wear Velvet for Every Invite

Velvet has made its presence known throughout AW17, with the trend proving itself to be a firm favourite of Christmas party season. Featuring show-stopping dresses, statement jackets and more, here are five ways to wear velvet for festive invites – it’s time to turn up the drama.

1. The Velvet Party Dress


From the work ‘do to family festivities, step into Christmas party season with velvet party dresses in luxurious jewel-toned palettes, taking your pick from rich purple to twilight-toned navy. No matter the choice, style yours with a sparkling clutch bag and a pair of heels.


2. The Velvet Maxi Dress


VIP invite? Re-write the rules of the black-tie dress code with this floor-grazing black maxi dress in decadent velvet, crafted with a flattering v-shaped neckline, ruched shoulders and a dramatic side split skirt. Accessorise with a glamorous gold clutch bag and vintage-inspired velvet court shoes.


3. The Statement Velvet Jacket


Trophy jackets are back – and this season, they’ve taken a turn for the luxe. Making a strong statement at every Christmas invite, this bold velvet jacket in classic black is embellished with celestial stars in glistening silver and gold embroideries. Wear yours with a cool cami, skinny-fit jeans and heels.


4. The Velvet Trousers


For a more subtle take the season’s most sought-after trend, velvet trousers make the perfect party investment. Go straight from nine till nine with a plush black pair with a second-skin fit, adding sparkle with a gold sequin tee. Finish the look with a velvet cross-body bag and high-vamp court shoes, both in a rich wine hue.  


5. The Velvet Sequin Dress


Going for all-out glamour? Combine two of the most-coveted party season trends at once with this vampy velvet mini dress, covered in copper sequins that are sure to dazzle on the dancefloor. Designed with a v-shaped back and a close-cut fit, this metallic mini looks best worn with simple heeled sandals in black.
