I know I seem to start every other blog post with the line, “Do you remember that Sex and the City episode when…” But please humour me one more time. Do you remember the episode where Miranda invites Steve to join her at a work function, and the only suit he owns is gold corduroy?
That suit was the final nail in the coffin for their relationship (during season two, at least). And my first thought when I slipped into this Boden two-piece was, “Miranda Hobbes wouldn’t like this!”
It may not be gold corduroy, but it is hot pink velvet. And that’s a lot to take in when it’s worn from head-to-toe.
So, I think we can all agree: this is a statement look. It’s not something you would wear every day of the week. But it’s perfect for evening events – especially if you’re bored of wearing maxi and midi dresses every time you have an occasion to dress up for.
I absolutely love wearing velvet during Autumn/Winter. And if you want in on the look too – but think Boden’s suit is a bit too OTT – here are 9 delightful velvet buys to make a beeline for, this season. And the best part is they’re all from the high street…
How will you be wearing velvet, this autumn/winter? And are you a fan of my statement Boden suit? Leave a comment below to have your say…
