Introducing Mint Velvet

Written by Helen Hackwell on Tuesday, 28 August 2012.

If I were asked to describe my wardrobe in terms of a palette; I think the word ‘neutral’ would be used the most. Whilst I like a bold print as much as the next blogger, there is no doubt that neutral shades appeal to me the most. I find that as I get older I’m more interested in buying clothes that complement the other items in my wardrobe. Gone are the hazy days of impromptu shopping trips and spur of the moment purchases. Now each purchase is a carefully considered investment, which I justify with the question "what do I own that I could wear it with?". Neutral shades are easy to pair for obvious reasons and being someone who favours bold  accessories, I enjoy being able to accessorise an outfit without ending up looking like a wannabe Lady Gaga.

Therefore it was with real delight that I came across Mint Velvet’s website. This was a brand that I was vaguely familiar with, having walked past their concession at my local House of Fraser on many occasions. But apart from the odd glance, I’d never stopped to look at their collection properly - my mistake evidently. Their pieces are beautiful, designed to be both wearable and glamorous, and specifically created to blend effortlessly with the modern woman’s wardrobe. Perfect for me and my neutral palette!

I’ve picked my favourite garments to share with you below; all of them would fit seamlessly into my wardrobe - my bank manager (or husband...) may need to reign me in shortly. I’m also very tempted by their pewter beaded necklace; the ideal choice for someone who loves long necklaces.

I can’t believe I’ve managed to overlook this brand for as long as I have. Their clothes encompass my personal style effortlessly. Lesson well and truly learnt!
