I grew up deep in the heart of the Laura Ashley era, where a velvet Christmas dress to wear to church was pretty much a must. Ditto for New Year’s Eve. My fondness for velvet frocks has carried into midlife and I always have a couple of velvet dresses in rotation.
Right now, my two standbys are this velvet tunic dress from Brora (mine is in a sapphire blue from a few years ago.)
And this pink crushed velvet dress from Anthropologie (purchased last year.)
Are you embracing velvet this Christmas?
