Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

Add some texture to your wardrobe this season: it’s the trend you’ll literally want to get your hands on

Fashion Week is the ultimate place to discover breakthrough street-style trends and this autumn was no exception, with the velvet blazer emerging as a must-have piece for the season ahead. With its rich texture and ability to add polish to any outfit, it’s no wonder that bloggers and editors alike turned to the velvet jacket as their cool-weather cover-up of choice. We saw it styled simply with jeans and a tee, or belted over fitted knits and flowing midi dresses. Score this sleek, single-breasted version and wear with a printed neckerchief and a silk shirt for an of-the-moment partywear look. Dress down with trainers at the weekend for a nonchalant feel.
