If you're keen to venture into velvet but want to stay within your comfort zone, Moss London's dress jacket is a great place to start.
Toning down the texture with a black hue, it's cut to a slim fit and does away with extra detail in favour of a more simplistic style.
But it's not all understated – open it up to reveal elaborately printed lining for a flash of personality.
On trend and devastatingly modern, a slim fit jacket fits close to the body – but not too close for comfort. Accentuating the shape of your chest, shoulders and back, a slim fit jacket is easy to wear and very flattering. Wear a slim fit shirt underneath for a seamless silhouette that works in a formal or casual context.
