Designers couldn’t get enough of velvet at fashion week this year, but we’re particularly loving the crushed velvet trend.
From blazers, to dresses and skirts – this luxurious fabric is giving us all the feels.
While crushed velvet is THE cool new trend right now, you can run the risk of looking a little cheesy in the old school fabric – so we’ve picked out a few of our fave pieces from the high street that you simply have to have.
