Christmas Fashion: The Velvet Dress

With only a few days till Christmas it’s about time to give some ideas of what to wear on the day!

When I think of Christmas and winter clothing, I instantly go towards velvet. It seems like such a winter staple and you can find such an array of options of how to wear it.

Here is an example of an outfit you could wear!


Dress: Zara £19.99


Knee High Socks: Forever 21 £4.50


Ankle Boots: H&M £19.49

I love the sleeves on the dress! I paired it with knee high socks and some ankle boots. But you could also do patterned sheer tights, to give it a lighter feel. These shoes are a bargain at £19.49 (were £29.99) and whether flat or heeled, boots keep your feet warm in this weather, which is always a bonus!

Other velvet items include skirts, tops and even shoes. I would always be wary of wearing velvet everything, best to keep the velvet item the star of your outfit!
