Modern Velvet Dresses…A 2019 Party Season Staple!

These modern velvet dresses are top of our must-have trends list for the upcoming party season. Since first gaining popularity in the 70s, velvet has become the ultimate come-back fabric beloved again in the ’90s and even the early 2000s. We’re hoping that this time, it’s here to stay! From elegant gowns to irresistible minis, you’ll be willing the festive season to arrive early this year…

Inject A Pop Of Colour

These modern velvet dresses are injecting some stunning shades into our wardrobes and we absolutely love it! Not only does it add an element of character to our look but the sumptuous velvet finish gives instant depth to any colour. The velvet jersey mini dress by Alexandre Vaulthier is a prime example. This stunning mini dress offers an alluring plunge V-neckline, ruched skirt detailing and elbow-length balloon style sleeves. Each element is cleverly heightened by the light reflecting nature of this luxurious fabric and its sultry maroon hue. Style this dress with classic black accessories to make it the centrepiece of any party look.

When it comes to velvet gowns, we must recommend the beautiful spruce green velvet dress by Jill Jill Stuart. The enchanting shade of deep green is ideal for this time of year and looks incredibly elegant in this texture. Additionally, this dress offers a stylish empire waistline which ideally balances the plunge V-neck and delicately puffed sleeves. Finally, this classic style serves to subtly enhance the length of the floaty floor-length skirt.

Floral Embellished Velvet

From one recurring trend to another, these modern velvet dresses lovingly incorporate florals too. Truly, this is a match made in style heaven. In terms of print, it really doesn’t get more beautiful than the Infinity floral-print drape dress by Vivienne Westwood. Not only is this dress incredibly romantic in style, but it also incorporates two rather bold trends seamlessly. The designers signature draped waist also ensures an eternally flattering silhouette for the wearer. Embrace the bold aesthetic of this sensational dress and style your look with colourful block heeled sandals to match the floral pattern.

Finally, we have the incredible Midnight Bloom sequin bodice dress by Self -Portrait. This is, without a doubt, one of the prettiest dresses we’ve seen this season. With its flattering peplum waistline, sequin embellished floral motifs and silver stitched trim, all eyes will undoubtedly be on you. Meanwhile, the jet black velvet mini skirt provides a stylish contrast to the dramatically detailed, slim-fit bodice. Throw on your favourite heels and you’re all set for an incredibly stylish, festive celebration!
