Exude Luxuriousness In Sumptuous Velvet Dresses
Luckily for us, velvet dresses continue to reign supreme when it comes to a look of ultimate luxury. This strokably soft, plush looking fabric is a huge trend for 2018. The summer months are officially behind us so we’re now on the lookout for new dresses. Weightier, rich looking fabrics will keep us warm and see us stylishly through party season. Our edit of luxury velvet dresses has everything you’ll need to exquisitely rock this look for day or evening wear.
Feel Like Royalty In Lavish Velvet Dresses
Velvet dresses have long been a favourite amongst fashion and real life royalty. The expensive looking finish of the fabric is loved for its grand, lavish appearance and touchable softness. Therefore it’s the ideal fabric choice when you’re wanting to look and feel especially extravagant. The Limo draped velvet wrap dress by Rick Owens is a winning option for a particularly grand evening event. The stunning deep purple fabric is expertly draped to reveal the beautiful texture and quality of the velvet. Meanwhile, the asymmetric hemline cleverly keeps this signature look modern and fresh.
A slightly more simple yet no less elegant choice is the Solstice hammered velvet corset gown by Galvan. This design incorporates a fantastically flattering boned corset, accompanied by a floor skimming skirt with a thigh high split. By keeping the cut simple it allows the stunning blue coloured velvet to steal focus for this incredibly elegant gown.
Staple Velvet Dresses For Party Season
No party season is ever complete without a few show-stopping velvet dresses. They’re the ultimate go-to party look and this season has some stunning options to get you feeling fittingly fabulous. These dresses are perfect for a gathering but can also be styled for a ultra chic day look too. We suggest switching out your usual LBD for Alice & Olivia’s Enid ruffled navy mini dress. This deep navy shade has the classic appeal of an elegant black dress but with a chic injection of colour. The ruffled hem also keeps this look playful whilst the classic wrap cut is wonderfully stylish and sculpts your figure.
Why not indulge in a more daring option for party season with an underwear for outerwear look. Stella McCartney’s lace trimmed velvet mini dress is simply stunning and will really elevate your usual LBD ensemble. You can wear this dress alone and styled with minimal metallic accessories. Alternatively you can pair it with some sheer, wide legged trousers for something a little more experimental.
