Hi everyone and welcome back to another Christmas Fashion Trend. This week, as the title would suggest is going to focus on velvet, a trend that I particularly love this time of year.
Last week, my boyfriend was rummaging through my wardrobe, on this occasion I asked him to pick me a top, and was completely confused as he picked out, not 1, no not 2 but 7 velvet tops.
“Why the heck would you need all these velvet tops? You have one in every colour.” Well for that reason dear Andy, I NEED one in every colour…
Yes, it’s fair to say I’m a bit obsessed. There’s nothing quite like a Velvet blazer to make an outfit a bit more Christmassy.
OK, so enough about me.. let’s get on to the good stuff…. 7 Velvet pieces that are to DIE FOR!
For the Christmas Work Party
Ok, I can honestly say that this dress is beautiful on… I spied this in Pippa Boutique in L’Derry at the weekend and fell in love! I tried it on and it is just the perfect fit…
For a Christmas Shopping Day
PLEASE AVERT YOUR EYES FROM THOSE MONSTROSITIES ON HER FEET. If you can imagine this dress with a Baker Boy and a pair of Vans, you are on to the perfect shopping to bar outfit.
For a Girl’s Night Out
I know, I’m a bit obsessed with the Galaxy style print at the moment, but with very good reason! It just looks effortlessly cool, especially with a pony tail. Although, I’m not a HUGE fan of the trousers, I would probably pair this with black skinnies or kick flares.
For Christmas Eve Drinks
I spied this Velvet Suit in Dublin when I was down a few weeks ago, and when I spied Megan Ellaby wearing the jacket, I knew we were on to a winner. That girl can do no wrong! Tuck in a Christmassy T-shirt underneath for Christmas Eve drinks.
For Christmas Dinner
Maybe some of you lounge about in PJ’s on Christmas Day, and I know some people like to get dressed up.. But seriously, who wants to be wearing a really pretty outfit but feeling uncomfortable after eating too much Christmas Pudding? No. Didn’t think so. The fit of this dress is a bit more roomy than most and would be super comfy too. Add a pair of tights and you’re even cosier!
For Boxing Day
Same goes for Boxing Day, I usually chill out, eat sweets and watch Star Wars, so I want to be extra comfy lying on the sofa with a blanket. Because of the style of this blouse, you may as well be wearing Pyjama’s!
For the New Years Eve Party
It was an absolute coincidence that the best outfit was saved for last. We have a double whammy – Velvet Dress and Velvet Boots. As per usual, there’s nothing I would style differently, Zara usually hits the nail on the head when styling their models.
