Here's how you can style a pair of velvet platforms without looking like a #throwback from the discotheque era


Our footwear choice of the hour are these OMG-inducing plush velvet teal platform sandals from Jil Sander. Apart from that gorgeous rich hue, the 30mm block platform heel is about to make our Friday dancefloor shenanigans more exciting than usual.

A timeless camel coat is worth investing in, especially when it's from our favourite outerwear brand Max Mara. It's not Friday night just yet, so throw on this sable-brown cashmere coat to tone down the snazzy vibe from your platforms.

Pull on another essential—a navy top that you can pair with anything and everything. This chic cotton-jersey top has a silhouette that falls loosely over the body, making it a must-have in our books. That roll-neck feature is an added plus, of course.

Pleats and volume are two details we absolutely can't resist. Put two together and you get this pair of stunners from Pleats Please By Issey Miyake. Instead of straight-cut pants or culottes, go with these trousers to add a dose of drama and a modern touch to your getup.

With a few colours going on in your ensemble, keep your accessories neutral with this suede Gucci Dionysus in a lovely shade of taupe. Its iconic double tiger head metal decoration is bound to elevate your look without having to make too bold of a statement.

Since your outfit leans towards a more contemporary, urban-chic look (with a dash of fancy from your teal platforms), accessorise with these oval light gold-tone brass earrings that exude an elegant yet modern aesthetic.

Channel your inner glamgirl with this metallic nail polish from Dior. Its formula is enriched with organic silicon to strengthen the nail surface for extra-long wear. Better yet, this hue is from its latest Couture collection and leaves a smooth and shiny finish on your nails.
