I have a problem—nothing serious, but I don't think my bank balance appreciates it. The thing is that I can't seem to stop buying velvet clothing. If you've passed by a high-street store or done some online shopping recently, you'll probably have noticed how many velvet items there are around right now. True, velvet isn't for everyone, but in my opinion, it's really flattering. There are so many different ways to wear it in plenty of different colours, so it's kind of hard not to love it.
If you're into it, I've got good news: There are a few pieces I've already bought—or have on my shopping list—that I'm willing to share with you. From chic trousers that are ideal for the office to cool Prada platforms that say "please wear me to every festive party" (I spotted these on Giovanna Battaglia during fashion week), there's something in my roundup for just about anybody.
