This week, You! shows you how to adorn velvet in style…


Some fabrics hold more pizzazz than others and velvet is the party. Velvet continues to capture hearts and we definitely fell for it this season. Velvet is a classic fabric that instantly gives off an air of elegance and can dress up even the simplest of outfits. The plush texture of velvet adds depth and richness to any look, creating a sense of luxury. Whether it’s a velvet dress, shawl, or matching separates, these garments effortlessly elevate your style.

Velvet’s texture shines through in its ability to transition seamlessly from day to night and its adaptability to fuse into various styles and designs. From intricate embroidery and beadwork to simple, minimalist cuts, velvet outfits can cater to diverse fashion tastes. The fabric’s inherent elegance makes it a favourite for formal events, weddings, and festive gatherings.

Velvet also plays well with a variety of colours, from classic black and deep jewel tones to soft pastels. The fabric’s ability to absorb and reflect light gives it a unique depth and richness, making it stand out. Accessorising with velvet allows for creative expression. Whether it’s pairing with statement jewellery, a contrasting clutch, or matching heels, velvet provides a unique canvas for personal style.

With its timeless appeal and versatility, it continues to be a favourite choice for those who want to make a lasting impression with their fashion choices. This week, You! shows you how to adorn velvet in style…
