Velvet is this season’s must-wear material — and here’s our guide to the perfect picks

31

IT’S the material of the moment and it hasn’t come a second too soon – velvet is high-fashion once again.

Spotted on catwalks at London, Paris and New York fashion weeks, it’s the perfect fabric to keep cosy against the winter chill – or to glam up with for nights on the town.

But it’s not limited to clothing and accessories (although ,thankfully, there’s plenty of that).

Instead, velvet has seen a resurgence across all areas of the style spectrum, including make-up and interiors.

From a soft-touch monkey lamp to jumpsuits and a chic clutch – there’s something for all velvet-loving fashion fans.
