I could not be happier about one of this coming season’s biggest trends… velvet! It’s one of my all time favourite fabrics and it’s going to be big, big news in AW16. It’s already being worn extensively in fashion circles, and it’s something that you can get the jump on early if you like as there are lots of lovely velvet pieces already in the summer collections and sales. Here I have picked out my plus size velvet faves to pick up now and stay ahead of the curve, many of them are heavily discounted too!
I had so much fun browsing around for this post and there are so many lovely bits and pieces that I had to separate them into three sections in the end; pinks, colour and black. There are plenty of velvet chokers out there at the moment but for AW they’re getting thicker, so the New Look wide burgundy choker is perfect. I adore the Missguided Plus pink bomber jacket, and the black velvet cap is a bit of fun really!
But if you only pick up one velvet item for AW16 then my tip is a pair of ankle boots as this is the one item I’ve been seeing the most of. Yes, they’re impractical for wearing in the rain (which it tends to do loads in the autumn and winter), but a pair of burgundy or navy velvet ankle boots with some skinny jeans or a chiffon midi is bang on trend for next season.
