Vel­vet is the ul­ti­mate fes­tive fab­ric. It feels deca­dent with­out hav­ing to be ex­pen­sive, which makes it ideal as a party-wardrobe up­date. Not con­fined to the evening, it looks chic paired with dressed-down sep­a­rates or tai­lor­ing for the of­fice. Flo­ral-em­broi­dered vel­vet pieces, such as those found on the Er­dem and Phi­los­o­phy di Lorenzo Ser­afini au­tumn/win­ter cat­walks, make a re­fresh­ing change from evening se­quins. Al­ter­na­tively, try a full-on tonal out­fit, as seen at Roberto Cavalli, for a pol­ished and pulled-to­gether re­sult. Lush.
