Velvet is one of the biggest trends of the season. It is a rich, heavy fabric that no matter what makes a bold fashion statement. You can easily style your velvet piece up or down depending on what look you want. To make a luxurious appearance, try matching your velvet skirt or trousers with a delicate blouse. Play with jewellery and try on pearls, big rings and brooches to add a sophisticated sparkle to your outfit. Stick to classic pumps or high heeled, feminine boots for the ultimate dressed up feeling.
To create a more easy-going everyday ensemble, match your velvet skirt with a fine knitted top or a denim shirt. Keep your accessories light and go for just a ring or a simple pendant necklace. Highlight your waist by putting on a leather belt, this will create a cool contrast and the leather plays well against the elegant velvet.
