Roll on payday...

Say hello to your new winter wardrobe essential; the velvet dress. From Fendi to Preen and Gucci the 90s fabric made a big comeback this season and we can’t get enough of it.

Whether you go for a simple shift, a body con number or (our favourite) the LBVD (Little Black Velvet Dress), with so much choice on the high street, resistance is futile!

Taking you seamlessly from day to evening, this will be your party season saviour. Wear with chunky ankle boots and tights for Christmas shopping days then swap to heels and a faux fur bomber to meet your friends for festive cocktails.

Depending on the style, your velvet dress may tend to ‘ride-up’ your legs when worn with tights. Simply wear a plain slip underneath, M&S has a good choice, to prevent this.

Layer velvet slips and strappy styles over roll necks or Victoriana blouses styled with ankle boots for extra warmth or go for all-out-glam and accessorize with statement earrings and killer heels. Why not add a wide waist belt to loose fit styles to create shape?

Red velvet dresses are great for your office Christmas party but if, like the majority of the Look office, it reminds you of your party dress when you were 11 years old, try a metallic style or printed design for an instant update on this classic trend.

Is there a better way to make a statement in the party season? We think not!
