Velvet Crushin': How To Rock Velvet This Party Season

Viva la velvet! Velvet is back ladies and it's bigger than ever! This 90s blast from the past has come out of hibernation and is fast making its arrival on the fashion scene in preparation for our favourite season of them all…party season! The most luxurious fabric of them all, velvet is a firm leader in evening wear, thanks to its dark palette of midnight blues, deep burgundy's and jet blacks. There’s no questioning that velvet’s favourite time to shine is over the Christmas period, so why not add a rich depth and a luxurious, elegant feel to your evening outfits this party season and treat yourself to a bit of velvet

When it comes to Select's velvet collection, we've left the 80s velvet trousers and power sleeve blouses firmly in the past and instead, we've revitalised this old school fabric and have given it a new lease of life, thanks to our modern twists and sassy detailing. Think choker necks, crushed velvet fabrics and cold shoulder detailing. Velvet is back in a more wearable form ladies, so there's absolutely no excuse not to jump on the velvet bandwagon this party season and cover yourself head-to-toe in the luxurious fabric.

But don't let this luxurious fabric fool you, because it has a lot more use than just wowing on the dancefloor. Velvet doesn’t have to automatically translate into party wear this season, as our crushed velvet co-ord loungewear sets in baby pink, khaki and navy will have you embracing the luxe trend in a more off-duty-friendly way, thanks to our crushed velvet leggings, joggers and cold shoulder sweatshirts, which are perfect for adding a touch of glam to the leisurewear trend this season. So even if you’re skipping the party season completely this Christmas, or are just lounging around on Boxing Day, then be sure to be lounging in style still, thanks to our new best friend in velvet. 

We've put together our top velvet picks from our velvet trend collection on our website, to give you a bit of velvet inspiration for the new season ahead and to show you that no matter how you wear it, velvet truly is a show-stopper that will work for Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and every occasion inbetween. So whether you opt for a classic red velvet dress, a pair of showstopping velvet trousers, a crushed velvet loungewear co-ord, or our choker neck navy velvet dress, then be sure to sparkle in velvet clothing this party season.
