Most of us associate velvet in clothing with a nineties aesthetic, but this textured fabric choice's use stretches far beyond the decade. This Velvet Shift Dress from Miss Selfridge perfectly taps into the decade's use of velvet in unconventional ways.
The shift dress structure is classic and stylish, with a straight, sleeveless cut and mid thigh hemline. The addition of crocheted collar and pocket accents adds some sharp shaping, while the deep plum provides a mid sixties style contrasting shade.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £45.
