V is for Velvet

Velvet is an ode to winter wardrobe – with its smooth texture, glamourous vibe and elegance personified. Helmed into contemporary Eastern and Western apparels, it makes for jaw-dropping dresses, pants, and separates perfect for festivities in the wintry season. In fact, a velvet dress might be the best thing that can happen to your winter wardrobe when it comes to creating statement festive looks.
