From what was seen on the NYFW runways for winter 2017 you could say that velvet made a surprising return for another season of high fashion styling.
Fashion writers everywhere were showcasing the velvet runway and red carpet trends, these are just two that we read - Savoirflair and Australia's very own PopSugar.
If you want to join in on the Velvet Underground Trend this winter but want a more affordable, wearable and alternative style then these two cute dress designs & a velvet jacket will be all you need to bring on point velvety lushness to your wardrobe this winter.
First Up is The Velvet Battle Dress
Some Days A Girl's Just Got To Do Battle
The Velvet Battle Dress is a new style from the dark alternative raven of Melbourne, Corvus Mellori.
Buy this if you:
love stretch velvet
love velvet mini dresses with hoods!
want something cute and warm to wear over leggings this winter

Usually we hate panne velvet but this fabric is the bomb! Super high quality, luxurious feel, gorgeous colour!
Hi, it's Shan here with an update on The Prophecy,
It is still the perfect hooded dress for you this winter and I absolutely stand by my prophecy that you will experience all of these good feelings when you wear it - cosy, snuggly, luxurious, velvety....BUT we are now down to the last few!
If you are an XS, S or L please don't delay if you want the Prophecy to come true.
You will have the dress and own all the good wintery feelings for $57 (down from $99)
...plus they are made in the USA.
The Prophecy has been very popular now that winter has arrived and we won't be able to restock this style...so now is the winter of your velvety contentment if you are an XS or S by the size chart.

This is what wearing this dress made me feel...
"The voices of the spirits foretelling the formidable future bring dark clouds across the sky. Slip your bare hands into your lush red pockets and pull your hood up to hide your face in the forest. The lush red lining makes you feel warm and protected and we drift into another realm"
Soft stretchy luscious velour
Pockets, a hood and long sleeves.....perfection!
Pair with over the knee socks and a long statement necklace
This dress is a small make so sizes will be a little smaller then you think
I chose the L because I wanted it to feel like it was wrapping around me like a cosy jacket
The dress is a 70's shape and doesn't hug the waist it falls straight more like a shift dress
As this is normally $99 and is on sale we aren't offering any returns so please check the size guide.
