Intro Deck: 

It's back. Again.

Velvet is one of those trends that comes around again and again. Now, it's back, again, for winter 2017. My only question: How much is too much?

It, of course, all started at the AW17 shows, with Max Mara giving a masterclass in how to wear velvet with suits, trousers and skirts layered under oversized shaggy coats. The hero piece from the shows, though, was Off-White's velvet mini – an unlikely fabric to see from them – which also got a hella lot of airtime on Hailey Baldwin.

The designers also hit the velvet trend hard when it came to accessories. From Gucci's rich berry pink Dionysus bag to Marni's contrasting royal red and navy shoulder bag, this season velvet comes in tones so rich they're good enough to want to eat.

Onto the high street. There are, as you'd expect, a million and one fabulous velvet dresses all perfect for Christmas party season (four of my absolute favourites are in the edit below), but where you should really splash the cash this year is on shoes. Think blush pink calf high boots at Office and blue embellished loafers at Aldo. Basically, colours are IN and you need to embrace them.

Stylist's tip: Accessories are a great option when it comes to the velvet trend, as you can get involved without feeling too OTT.

In case you weren't aware, party season is NOW and these items are the perfect picks for your festive wardrobe. Enjoy!
