From sequins to metallic, Christmas party season style is all about texture and sheen. For me, the standout fabric this Christmas is velvet. The high-street has fully embraced this trend with Zara, Topshop and Reiss really hitting the mark. From wide-legged trousers, tuxedo jackets, jumpsuits and skirts in every length and style, there is something to suit all body shapes. If you’re not quite ready to wear the full trend, there are plenty of beautiful velvet accessories and shoes, which will add that touch of luxe to any party outfit too.
