Around this time every year, Christmas and New Year party looks start hitting the stores. Whatever the trend of the year is, from metallics to sequins, you can always expect a lot of sparkle. For Autumn/Winter 2016, velvet is absolutely everywhere, from dresses to ankle boots, and crushed velvet especially has a gorgeous way of shimmering in the light that makes it party-perfect. It’s also wonderfully heavy whilst still being soft and supple, which makes it the perfect choice for cosy winter underthings too!

Velvet is such a luxurious-looking fabric. It’s already a firm favourite for snug dressing gowns, but right now I’m seeing more velvet bras, bodysuits and other lingerie than ever before. Here are 16 of my top picks to treat yourself to as winter rolls in, because who doesn’t want a pair of big, velvety-soft knickers?!

What are your thoughts on velvet lingerie? Do you have a favourite piece here, or know of some awesome velvet lingerie I’ve missed off the list?

You missed Blackbird Underpinnings, Esty 🙂
I have their high waisted briefs made of lovely gold, crushed velvet. Like it a lot although I think velvet is not particularly comfortable to wear when you want to wear jeans or fitted trousers. I find it not comfortable.

So I did, another great one!

And yeah, I guess velvet is bulkier than typical lingerie fabric. Warmer too though 🙂
