Can you resist velvet?
It’s an essential in the wardrobe. Velvet can be as glamorous as it comes or as simple as you like. I love it in any shape or form and there is something totally luxurious about the feel and look of such a rich fabric. It’s the same as a velvet decorating fabric; how marvellous a sofa or a pair of curtains can be?
There are three pieces I have found from Eileen Fisher, which I think would work wonderfully in our autumn/winter wardrobes. There are two versions of a pant, a shift dress and two brilliant jackets. Eileen Fisher is a brand I look to for the elegant and unfussy styles and I usually find something to compliment, especially my travel wardrobe.
They do fabulous velvet and I will admit to liking them more than many others I have seen this season. The beauty of these is we can really dress them up or wear them with the casual.
I wanted to show you. Maybe it could be a velvet weekend coming up? xv
