Red Velvet Clothing is a clothing brand based in St Albans.
Their aim is to offer unique knitwear with eye-catching hand embellishment, within an affordable price range.
They got in touch with me to see if I’d like to review a cover-up, cardigan, or a light sweater.
As well as viewing their collection online there are also pop up shops so you can view the clothing in person. The garments are ideal for layering during the cooler evenings or a cover-ups to wear on the beach. I chose the Gemma kimono in white.
My parcel arrived as I was leaving to go to a friend’s leaving party in Cambridge – a day of picnicking and punting in the sunshine. I immediately discarded my dull grey cardigan in exchange for the sparkly number I had received.
I had ordered a S/M which fitted perfectly as a size 12. This pretty cardigan had a sequin embellished front with kimono style elbow length sleeves.
The sequins are stitched and the garment is of great quality – always a worry if you’ve not seen it in person before ordering. Not that I should have been concerned- Red Velvet Clothing provide free returns for the UK and Ireland, so you can shop worry free!
The cardigan was comfortable and perfect for a British summer – although it was a lovely sunny day it was incredibly windy and got cooler as the evening went on. It was also dressy enough for a day to night outfit and on meeting at my friends at Hitchin station I got lots of compliments about how glam I looked!
The next day I had a family Christening. I was recycling a previously worn dress – the Gemma Kimono was perfect for once again making my outfit feel a bit special!
