Trend: Velvet and Florals

Floral + Velvet Dress

You probably don’t want to hear this just yet but the party season is looming and I think might have just found the dress to see us through. Bold statement, I know. It’s from Next (yes, really) but they have upped their style game in the last couple of years and from time to time they do things really well, like these leopard print flats for example.

It’s a good idea to keep an eye out in October and early November because you don’t really want to be trawling the high street looking for a brilliant outfit once the Christmas shopping frenzy is in full swing. You know the deal, Last Christmas is blearing out of the PA system, you’re weighed down with bags, you’re hot and bothered and you’ve just had to wrestle past a zillion other slightly angry shoppers. It’s hell. Shop now, dress smugly later.

This little number nails two trends in one brilliant hit: velvet and florals. The tropical print is very Gucciesque – instant win. It is figure hugging but it has a bit of stretch in it too so you can definitely sit down and eat dinner whilst wearing it – double win!

The combination of both trends has a very luxe feel making it the perfect choice for the season of merriment. There are plenty of options out there to suit every body shape and budget. Happy shopping!
