After-work drinks, dinner with a date, a night out on the town – we bet you've got a busy month planned! And that means that you'll be needing some seriously chic outfits, right? Luckily for you, *heat's *Style Editor Laura Puddy is here to show you how velvet can work in 3 sassy evening looks...

Flare It Out


Going on a hot date? Then you'll need something super hot to wear. Think a pastel coloured velvet top with figure-hugging flares and statement heels. Oh, and don't forget to grab an oversized clutch bag before you head on out. Knock 'em dead, girl!

Simple, Yet Sassy


After an outfit that's perf for after-work drinks with your colleagues? Laura recommends a simple jean-and-velvet-top combo. Wear some plain black jeans to work, then just before you're planning on heading to the bar, trade in your professional work top for this gorg velvet number. We LOVE it.

Glitter Rock


Right, if you're going out-out, then nothing less than a glittery, sequin number will suffice. So invest in a jaw-dropping midi sequin skirt (with a high split, obvs!), and wear it with a sultry velvet top. This fabric is known for being uber sexy, after all.

Watch how to style a velvet top, below:
