Rich, luxurious velvet. This season velvet is popping up everywhere – from dresses and skirts to crop tops, handbags and chokers; there are even a couple of pairs of fabulous over-the-knee velvet boots out there (I’m talking about you Aldo). Go matching head to toe with velvet coordinates or mix it up with knits, suede and leather – but whatever you do, incorporate some velvet into your looks. This November, velvet is king (but fit for a queen).
