While Rihanna stepped out in a red velvet slip dress recently, Kylie Jenner was spotted sporting a velvet periwinkle blazer that doubled up as her dress, not too long ago. Zendaya, Khloe Kardashian and Cara Delevingne are some of the other celebs who have warmed up to the trend. With the fabric making its way back onto runways and into stores, here’s how you can get the look.
Add some sunshine to the
gloomy winter with this number
from Missguided. A mustard yellow fabric forms the base, while floral prints in unusual black make this a stand-out piece. The cowl neck and cross-over straps at the back add to the fun. `2,500 approx on asos.com
