Velvet is everywhere this season and it’s perhaps one the most versatile of trends – perfect for glam parties, quirky retro touches, eccentric trousers and grungy separates. The only issue I have with it is, that being a kid of the 1980s, I remember wearing countless pairs of velvet leggings and party dresses with velvet and flocked details!
