From Valentino to Rochas, if the AW16 shows had one com­mon thread, it was vel­vet. Trouser suits and tops made an im­pres­sion, but it was the dresses that took cen­tre stage. Un­doubt­edly the fab­ric of the sea­son, re­sis­tance is fu­tile!

Look (UK) - - FEATURE -

DO: Mix your tex­tures. Wear vel­vet slips over thin roll necks or crisp white shirts, then fin­ish with a leather biker for a tougher take on the ro­man­tic trend. DON’T: Be afraid of colour. Ex­per­i­ment with blush pink and olive green. Of course, there’s al­ways navy on of­fer…

DO: Dou­ble dose and ac­ces­sorise with vel­vet ac­ces­sories for max­i­mum im­pact.
