What I Wore: Black Floral in Velvet

Girls night, last night, meant I got to treat myself to a new dress.  I saw, I tried on and I purchased all in a space of what felt like five minutes!

I headed into NEXT in my hometown simply to buy a top, but I came across this fabulous black floral range which had a variety of different items that you could style with black or gold pieces to make a lovely capsule range for Autumn/Winter 2016.

Velvet is a big trend this season and I've been looking out for a velvet dress or top - most I've found have been in plain black or plain bright jewel colours which have a tinge of cheapness about them and yet the price tag states otherwise.

This floral dress plays homage to the velvet trend and yet has this understated glam about it. I styled the dress with black platform suede shoe boots, ultra thick black tights and some simple gold jewellery as I didn't want to distract from the floral design - which has birds, flowers and butterflies all over it.

NEXT have quite a few pieces in black floral - some that I loved in store I couldn't find for you on the web, but hopefully the items below will give you a taster to perhaps explore this range for yourself.
