A black jersey cocktail dress with long sleeves, also known as ‘the little black dress or LBD’ named ‘Velvet‘. This is a cute and sexy dress, which is brought to life because of the unusual black jersey fabric. The jersey fabric has a knobbly texture that forms the diamond pattern of the black, however, as you get closer you will see that in-between this pattern is a sheer gossamer texture subtle and yet very sexy, in my opinion.
This style of dress was best suited to being a semi-mini dress, so you can wear her with sparkly sheer tights, no tights and strappy heels; or thicker tights and long boots. Because of the stretch within the fabric this dress easily lends itself to a curvy figure complimenting your silhouette.
The fun of this cocktail dress doesn’t stop there, a deep black velvet collar that is made up of peaks that stand up are woven into the fabric. To celebrate your gorgeous legs the velvet theme is carried through to the hem using a bold velvet ribbon with a small velvet bow as an extra finishing touch. Drop shoulder slim fitting sleeves, easy to slip over an evening jacket, coat or a little leather jacket. Velvet is a Coral Turner ‘Exclusive Original’ label, there is only one of this ready to wear dress available made in this fabric, she’s a stand alone piece.
