This season one of British mum’s favourite High Street brands, Mint Velvet gives us a lot to be excited about! Not only have they launched a fabulous new collection that draws inspiration from the effortless Parisian style of our French sisters, but they’re offering the chance for British Mums to shop their signature, soft, feminine dressing at an amazing 50% off at their brand new branch in Marina Mall.

So what’s in store for us? Well, it’s all about confidence this season – think longline silhouettes, with blazer and wide-leg trouser combos in structured and relaxed fabrics, that are reminiscent of the 90s power-suit of our youth. They also give modern sportswear a new spin this season, pairing gorgeous suits with casual trainers. Their fashion advice for this season is to simply swap the trainers with a pair of kitten heels, add a neckerchief and a clutch and voila! You have that sexy grown up look for work or date night.

Mint Velvet’s lace high necks with ruffled sleeves and cuffs portray historical references, while contrast bow ties and a modern colour palette provide a contemporary twist. Layering styles is not shied away from though, with fabrics in black, khaki and ivory showing elements of the military trend again.

If you’re heading back home this winter to colder climates, this look works just as well with Mint Velvet’s infamous leather bikers or a parka jacket, and an oversized, keep-forever knit, teamed with a floatier floral and painterly fabric, and a pair of over the knee boots, is the embodiment of cosy boho dressing and screams ultimate elegance.

For the brave and bold amongst us, the ultimate statement this season is tonal dressing. Mint Velvet does this trend best with merlot on merlot, red on red and teal on teal and we guarantee you will LOVE these colours!

The nice thing about Mint Velvet is that they do actually put functionality at the forefront of everything, so you can easily combine that sense of casual, boyfriend-dressing with the brand’s signature classy, feminine elements so that wearing jeans, a dress or layering a polo neck under lighter fabrics, or even heavier knits for colder months, is another way to pay homage to the luxe French dressing that we’re always just that tinsy bit envious of! ??

British Mums are even more super excited than ever to be holding yet another exclusive 50% off shopping event with Mint Velvet – This time, on a Saturday morning so working mums can come too! Previous events have been jam-packed with ladies and time and time again, the talk in the changing rooms is the same – we love the fact that Mint Velvet KNOW how to make clothes that make us look and feel great.
