Winter is a time for fun and luxurious textures, and there is no hotter material this season than velvet. The classic material has made a comeback in a huge way this season, with garments in all shapes and sizes embracing the trend. Bring your child’s closet to life with velvet this winter. To help you nail this look, the experts at Chocolate Clothing have picked their top three velvet pieces this autumn/winter.
A blazer is a great way to inject the velvet trend in a subtle yet formal way. This blazer is the perfect piece to incorporate the trend with minimal effort. Simple velvet trimming on the lapels and cuffs can help convey the trend in a simplistic way. This boy’s black jacket with velvet detailing by Billybandit is the perfect example of this trend in action. The simple velvet trimming adds a hint of luxurious texture desired in a low-key and conservative way.
Another fabulous way to incorporate velvet into your child’s wardrobe this season is through an overcoat. An overcoat often allows more room for decadent textures and prints than other styles of coat, due to their longer and heavier silhouette. Adding a hint of velvet texture to your child’s overcoat is a bold move that is perfect for the winter climate. This trend is perfectly executed with this girl’s navy coat with velvet collar, cuffs and buttons from Rachel Riley.
Dress It Up
A classic velvet dress will never go out of style. The glamorous texture is perfect for any party occasion. The key to making velvet work in a party atmosphere is to keep it simple.

This girl’s red velvet dress with bow detailing is a perfect example of a classic velvet dress, by Rachel Riley. The opulent texture is perfectly accentuated by bow detailing, creating a feminine silhouette.
