Neuw Gets The Velvet Trend Right With The Victoria Shirt

You have to be very careful with velvet. It has its place on Hugh Hefner, a two-year-old’s Christmas Day dress with Peter Pan collar and a slouchy patchwork cap in 1992, and yes, while it’s had something of a revival recently, it still must be approached with caution. One velvet vibe we are feeling is the Victoria shirt from Australian line Neuw. Although they specialize in denim, other items such as this and the chiffon Kim dress are so super cute we are excited to see what unfolds from them in the coming seasons. Pair the Victoria shirt with some jeans and an Acne pistol boot and you’re good to go. Because of the formal nature of velvet, unbutton a few buttons and roll the sleeves for a slightly more relaxed feel. Or button it up and be all prude Victorian. Whatever.
