The joy of velvet (it’s not just for the party season)

My wardrobe has its fair share of fancy: I love Lurex, am a sucker for sequins and have enough silk shirts to rival the Grand National. This festive season, I’ve become a pushover for plush velvet. There is something about this luxurious fabric that adds a decadent spin to any occasion. Velvet is slouchy, sumptuous, special enough for cocktail hour – and great for lounging around in. If you’re looking for relaxed velvet separates I can highly recommend NRBY’s collection, the infinitely wearable silk-blend velvet shirt has seen a lot of action over the holidays, and has been accompanied on the sofa by the label’s silk-blend velvet drawstring trousers  (the poshest jogging pants in town).

And of course, velvet is not just for the party season. The Cocktail Suit offers plenty of options that work well into the new year and beyond: try the velvet jacket with jeans and boots, the velvet trousers with a jersey roll neck and printed blouse. Mismatching textures and layering items is the way to make everyday essentials look extraordinary. Think Lauren Hutton meets Phoebe Waller-Bridge, keep it slightly androgynous and step into 2020 like an absolute style star.

Happy New Year!
