My favourite rule in fashion is that you’re free to break the rules!
We think of velvet as fabric reserved for winter and red velvet in particular is something most of us would only wear during the Christmas festive season. Well, I’ve got news for you – you can now enjoy this luxe fabric all-year-round. With this outfit I want to show you how to wear it this spring for a day out in the city. You’re allowed to enjoy an outfit with a dramatic feminine twist on a daily basis.
Casual outfit with red velvet
Relying on contrasting fabrics to create a statement with a modern twist, I combined this lush velvet top from Boohoo with a very on-trend acid wash jeggings from American Eagle. A matching red lipstick and oversized sunnies make for an easy-to-achieve chic appearance.
Accessories for modern mums
Pushing the pram through the city requires comfortable shoes and so I slipped in one of my favourite pairs of JustFab gladiator sandals. A little block heel gives that unpretentious cool, without making a struggle out of the long hours spent walking.
Another very important accessories is the bag and let me tell you a little secret – this lovely Anya tote from Babymel is actually a changing bag. Crafted from faux leather fabric with delicate laser cut detailing its brings a little luxury to the everyday of a busy mum. Ticking all the boxes for practicality and style, it’s my go-to handbag these days and even though it can strap around the pram I’m pushing, it doesn’t look like your regular bag full of baby nappies.
