The sky is officially greying here in London and quite frankly, I could not be happier. It is time to put away the floral dresses and thigh-skimming mini skirts, and look towards longer silhouettes. A hero on the AW16 runway, velvet can not be ignored. Whether in the form of figure-hugging leggings, midi-dresses or seductive camisole tops, literally nothing screams statement like all velvet errrrything.
If your budget allows, then look to Fendi or Valentino for your staple velvet piece, but if like me, your budget definitely does not allow, then Zara and ASOS will be your saviour. Take one key piece and pair it with a metallic skirt for maximum effect, or keep things simple with jeans and a leather jacket for evening drinks.
