It’s a trend some of us might prefer to leave to the high fashion peeps, but I’m here to lend a hand with your velour styling because it isn’t as tough as you may think. Try focusing on the velour garment or accessory as the hero of your outfit and piecing everything in around it.
You don’t have to ‘Pinterest’ far to realise velvet ‘n’ velour are smashing street style. Crushed velour skirts, dresses and tailored jackets are rampant but how do we wear it without looking too try hard?
Here’s some simple and affordable pieces to get your velvety juices flowing…
