Styling the Velvet Red Dress

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Spring has sprung in Sydney and it’s time to bring all the floral numbers and breezy dresses out to play.  One such favourite of ours is this velvet red dress, perfect for a Spring night out when the breeze still has a little chill to it. 

As we mentioned previously in our velvet in summer guide, when opting for this fabric in spring/summer, we tend to gravitate towards easy, billowing cuts as opposed to the fitted variety. This makes the slip dress the perfect option in our books — simple, delicate and sexy. Zaful has a couple of such red slip dresses for your collection if you already do not own one. To add a little more luxury, we paired it with these gorgeous patterned booties, also in velvet and the printed bag. While green and red can sometimes come across as Christmas-y, this pairing is more reminiscent of Dolce and Gabbana (one of our favourite designers) than December festivities.
