There is something mesmerising about the smooth, silky soft feel of velvet that simply captivates your imagination in an uplifting way filled with romance and seduction, and NO… I am not talking about the red velvet cake! It’s the velvet fever that we are obsessing about lately. Fashion Designers are using velvet in anything they can get their hands on, and we have to admit, we cannot get enough of it, from blazers to shoes and even velvet socks. The beautiful thing about velvet is that you can wear it from head to toe, without feeling over the top, it’s intriguing and on trend. Without a doubt,  it’s the hottest trend this fall. To tantalise your senses and personal style this season, here are few of the hottest velvet picks from the high street. Make sure to mix and match and keep it fun. When it comes to velvet, more is more!
