Mint Velvet is the rather deliciously sounding name of our brand of the month, with equally deliciously gorgeous clothes to back it up.

Launched recently in October 2009, their website describes their collection as “[combining] modern silhouettes with luxury fabrications, creating a relaxed and sensual style.” With a mix of largely neutral and pastel palettes, draping, ruffles and delicate fabrics, it’s fair to say that Mint Velvet should be your go-to place for pieces with a relaxed, casual chic vibe. A striped Breton top is a classic; something that you will wear again and again without doubt (£35). The ¾ length striped top is shown here with the silver teardrop necklace (£29), which is a great statement piece and something that can be worn to give new life to tired, old outfits. Look pretty in pink with this silk ruffle dress, £75, perfect for the summer months, or how about this striped ruffle dress for £45? It’s made out of jersey so not only will it make you look super stylish, it is also bound to be ultra-comfortable! Finally, why not try the silver tencel safari jacket (£75) on for size for those cooler days? It would also make a great transition piece for when summer starts turning to autumn, and with the belt to define waists and a flattering neckline, it’s sure to suit just about anyone. Of course this is only a selection of the fantastic items up on the website, so be sure to check it out! They have loads more wonderful pieces available online, as well as a handy store locator and a gorgeously romantic lookbook for you to drool over!
