New York Golden Hour

When you have the opportunity to shoot something a little special in New York, it’s time to pull out all the stops and channel a more romantic vulnerable side. Today’s article is slightly different to what I would usually post, but wanted to get creative overlooking the Manhattan skyline and do something a little more dressy and editorial before heading out for cocktails in the city. Maybe I have been watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s a little too much! 

Velvet is new to my closet, and held out for this dress purely for the emerald green tones that ooze class. The wrap style is perfect to cinch in that waist, and the low neckline is a little sexy. With a dress this length, I think it’s important to show a bit of skin. I couldn’t resist adding a statement gold necklace to take this look back to the 60’s. As we are heading into winter here in Aus, the thickness of the dress is ideal for a cold night out. I was actually surprised how much fabric this dress has. 

So how can you add velvet into your wardrobe? I would definitely recommend only having a few pieces, so here are my picks:

The Statement Dress
Perfect for those winter nights out. Try wrap styles that are going to reveal some skin.
The Velvet Belt
Perfect to dress up your go to denim and white tee look whilst adding texture.
The Velvet Shoe
Easy to incorporate into your closet. Stick to muted tones so that they see you through to next season instead of being a one off fashion piece.
