Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.
A popular misconception about velvet is that it’s purely a festive buy – a little touch of soft luxury for the party season. It is luxe, of course, but velvet is also a great fabric to see you from autumn through to spring. Try a velvet blazer with denim for a dash of casual sleek, or a voluminous kimono works beautifully as a lush wrap coat. Alternatively, make velvet accessories your go-to for ramping up your day-to-evening wear.
How to wear velvet all winter:

Try a dress to impress
With its nipped-in waist and statement sleeve, it’s the silhouette of the season.
Do a double take
Team a deliciously soft velvet up top with more structured on the bottom.
