We all love love a bit of online shopping and lets face it we’re all guilty of logging onto ASOS whilst watching Eastenders in bed and accidentally spending every penny we have.
BUT there are 2 things that keep us going back to the high street A) you can try stuff on. I mean there is nothing worse than waiting for days to receive a new dress and then it turns out to be too small and B) you can feel things. And these days the fashion world has clocked onto the fact that we like to feel things.
I know it sounds like I’m rambling about nothing so I’ll cut it short. This season is all about textures that we need to touch! From shearling to fur to corduroy to our favourite texture, velvet. We’re talking plush, fluffy velvet that makes us feel like we’re royalty when we wear it.
Sam wears: dress, £69, M&S. Cigdem wears: dress, £39.99, Zara
The last time velvet was in, sadly it was in the form of Juicy Couture tracksuits (oh Paris Hilton..why?!), but this year we’ve both gone for a stylish dress. Although Cigdem’s dress does come with a hood.
But incase a hooded dress isn’t your thing, here are top plush velvet picks from the high street…gogogo!
