If you’re not quite ready to commit to that coat just yet but want to get a jump-start on the new season, velvet’s where it’s at. A stylish fast track to the glam wardrobe this half of year commands, the touch-me texture has already begun to permeate the ‘new in’ sections of your favourite shopping haunts. Formerly relegated to after dark, velvet’s now been given the daytime seal of approval in crop top and blazer form, and has taken over the interior scene to boot. Promise us this, though: if you buy one thing, make it the teal heels. Because, well, shoes.
