The end of summer always feels a little sad. But, in order to deal with the blues, why not concern yourself with a little sartorial refresher for the approaching winter season. Nothing cheers us up like the impending thoughts of a new wardrobe to ponder over.
This winter has a particularly strong thread of dark, gothic-tinged drama to it. If there was one fabric which abounds, it’s velvet – seen on practically every catwalk, in every guise. Whilst velvet trousers may not be for all (I am yet to be convinced of their flattery), velvet accessories are, if not necessarily the most practical in a rain shower, utterly divine.
