For a long time, I’ve been avoiding the velvet trend. Sure, it’s shiny, pretty and soft – but I wasn’t really a fan. I’m more of a suede kind of girl – and velvet always seemed a little OTT to me. Until I came across this little black velvet dress in Urban Outfitters last week – now I’m a total convert.


Sleek, simple and easy to accessorise for both casual nights and more decadent attire. I love the turtleneck and slit elbow design too. It’s a little shorter than I’d normally go for, but hey – there’s nothing wrong with a flashing a little leg now and then.

Shop it here for a mere £20. Total style steal!

Hope you like,
