The velvet dresses and blazers you'll want in your wardrobe this party season

Velvet is always a Christmas party staple

Velvet is synonymous with autumn/winter, and particularly party season dressing. It adds something a little bit extra to your regular partywear pieces without being as in your face as a full glitter ensemble. Silky smooth and super soft, velvet not only looks expensive, it's comfortable, which is a must for any Christmas or New Year plans involving eating and dancing into the early hours.
