Velvet Looks for the Hong Kong Winter

Winter wardrobe winners


Due to Hong Kong’s above average temperatures, for much of the year, we get a little stuck when it comes to style. And winter is no different. In other countries, by this time of year we’d already have well-worn our thick coats, cuddly scarves and beanie hats – and though I’m (somewhat) happy to give these up, in exchange for a seemingly endless warm weather – I just can’t part with velvet. It’s cosy, warm and comfy, yet still luxe. You can dress it up and dress it down, but unfortunately in this city, you’re probably going to be sweating while wearing it. Luckily for us, this season velvet is everywhere. From shoes, bags, and accessories, to classic dresses and tops, we’ve rounded up our favourite velvet looks (that are Hong Kong weather approved) …

Cafuné Bellows Crossbody Bag

For an easy wardrobe update, and just the right amount of velvet, we’re loving Cafuné’s crossbody bag. The dusty rose colour is bang on trend, but the bag is also available in sepia. Can’t afford to splash out? H&M happen to have a gorgeous dark grey velvet bag, which is not too dissimilar!

Available online from Cafuné, or from Cafuné stockists in Hong Kong

Available online from H&M, or from H&M stores across Hong Kong

Velvet Loafers

Whilst we may love Gucci’s statement (and seasonal!) velvet slippers, our bank balance doesn’t love the price tag. Instead we’re going for a slightly more purse friendly alternative in the form of Mango’s powder blue pair.

Available online from Mango, or from Mango stores across Hong Kong

L'Academie Mini Wrap Dress

Wrap dresses are always a flattering hit, and we’re seeing them everywhere in velvet this season. Wear L’Academie’s luxe green mini with bare legs for a glam evening look, or go for ZARA’s more affordable dupe.

Available online from Revolve

High Waist Jeans in Black Velvet

Every wardrobe needs a staple pair of black skinny jeans and ZARA’s velvet option are a great seasonal take on the evergreen look. We’re especially fond of the red side stripe!

Available online from ZARA, or from ZARA stores across Hong Kong

CAMI NYC The Racer Velvet Contrast Top

Velvet and a seasonal berry tone? This lace trim top from CAMI NYC is ticking a lot of boxes. Perfect for warm weather, wear with jeans and heals for an easy party look. H&M also stock a similar jewel tonned lace trimmed cami, again great for the party season!

ANNE F Beaded Elegant Velvet Scarf

For when it gets just a little cooler, this gorgeous grey velvet scarf will be perfect. The material is super soft, and we love the addition of the beaded detail. We’ll be buying ours in the grey, but it is also available in purple, green and wine! 

Available online from Zalora

ASOS Velvet Twist Headband

Looking for just a subtle pop of velvet? This golden ASOS headband will add a touch of glamour to any look (or cover up a bad hair day!). An easy and effortless way to incorporate velvet into your look this season.
