Of all the trends we noticed on runways across London, New York and Milan, the allure of rich velvet clearly charmed industry greats. From Christopher Kane to Ralph Lauren, designers sliced into silhouettes, created floating hemlines and detached shoulders to welcome back the beloved AW trend.
Soon to filter it’s way onto the high street, we’re crushing hard over this textured modern-day offering. One particular piece we’re smitten with is this Dominique Velvet Dress by Little White Lies. The dress is made from high-shine fabric and features a baby doll silhouette, two front pockets and thick Nineties style straps. Talk about giving this trend a royal reboot, the sassy number proves that velvet is back and it’s better than ever.
Priced at £95.00 we find the dress most valuable when it comes to creating a day-time look. Team the design up with a pair of ultra-high heels and a boxy clutch bag, sure, but for an outfit that’s perfect acceptable to wear to work, class and even a lunch time date, layer the dress over a striking silk shirt.
