Velvet—the world’s most sumptuous fabric—has taken hold of the fashion ranks. From Kate Hudson, who has just been spotted wearing the J Brand velvet flares, to model Jeanne Damas, who we've seen wearing a perfect velvet blouse and boyfriend jeans combo, this trend is going to skyrocket. While the U.S. site declared a fortnight ago that velvet ankle boots are indeed a thing, the velvet trend has since migrated upward onto jumpsuits, blazers, camisoles, and tops—if you can name it, this sumptuous fabric covers it.
Our trend barometer is working overtime! We want velvet camis to layer underneath our trusty leather bikers, we need a velvet slip to channel ASAP and there's no stopping a choice investment in the velvet jumpsuit—be it a splash from Sonia Rykiel or a snip from French Connection. Resistance is futile.
Scroll down to see the new pieces from the British high street and our favourite brands that have kick-started a craze for velvet.
