Velvet Dreams

Make a statement

without having to say anything in a gorgeous velvet dress.

The right dress can introduce, style, and describe you, while you enjoy your night and not worry about anything else.

A wrap dress with a side tie like this goes a long way. It can be dressed up with your favourite pair of heels and some extra dazzle of jewelry, or dressed down with flats. The tie also adds a tasteful touch by redefining your waistline and silhouette, along with the classic, feminine V-neck. 


Looking for something more upscale? A bodycon dress may do the trick for you. With its elegant cut and trendy mesh insert for your arm, this minimal yet strikingly beautiful number will make you feel like the best-dressed of the night.


If you're worried about the cold, feel free to add a pair of tights to your look. Have a bit of fun experimenting with patterned tights, anywhere from polka dots to florals. Depending on the pattern, it will give your outfit a more youthful or alluring air. And of course, don't forget about the coat! A jacket or coat of similar texture, like our reversible faux-fur coat, will have you looking put-together even in the outdoors. The soft touch and subtle shine of the coat will help you pull the look together with no effort.
