Shadow Dress by Schumacher
This Schumacher velvet dress is our dress of the week.
Velvet is having a bit of a moment – perhaps because the temperatures have dropped and it’s a warm fabric or maybe just because there’s something distinctly Christmas-y about the way it drapes and falls . Whatever the reason, we’re glad it’s back. This two-tone ‘shadow’ dress, a gorgeous ink and forest green, oozes easy glamour. Perfect for all the cocktail parties in the lead up to the festive season!
For a bit of glitz, why not add this Blank London pupa chain necklace and carry it as a clutch? Everyone knows that this is the time of year for a bit of gratuitous glitter!
For the cherry on top, make like Emma Watson and wear your velvet dress with statement earrings and a berry-hued lip stain. The result should be a feminine nod to gothic glamour.
