Five things you need to own NOW

We’re feeling as smooth as velvet this week on Gimme 5.

the blazer

Well isn’t this a cute little number? If you like it, log on to Littlewoods and pick it up.

This military inspired velvet blazer fastens neatly at the waist has a lovely embossed detail on the brass effect buttons out front. Its a sure fire hit for the festive season and beyond.

the top

This top is straight out of the 50s. It has a lovely wrap detail and a pretty hanging sash. It’s made from leopard print too, so ticks ALL sartorial boxes.

Velvet is not just for jackets and dresses, these purple platform chelsea boots with their block heel are both comfy and cool.
