Red velvet doesn’t have to be fattening, take this gorgeous number from the guys over at Dobell – a stunning jacket guaranteed to turn heads.

This single-breasted, slim fit red velvet jacket is full of character and is a testament to the craftsmanship of the Dobell in-house label.

Such detailing, like the shawl lapel and matching four-button cuff definitely add to the luxurious feel that you’d want from a velvet jacket.

The standout for this jacket is the colour; this red changes depth depending on the light hitting it, coupled with the shimmer – it grabs the attention of passers-by to the point where they even stop to comment.

I’ve styled the jacket with a River Island long sleeve shirt, SID slim leg jeans and Topman black Chelsea boots. Typically a smart-casual outfit, the jacket propels it into the realms of being standalone smart.

The slim fit is generous but well tailor, as I’m a larger guy with a 42-inch chest, the contours of the jacket itself help disguise my frame while also giving a really comfortable fit.

Although not pictured, the lining of the jacket is satin-style black fabric with an intricate floral design; it slides on with ease but doesn’t move around if it’s well fitted.

Priced at just £99.00 – this a worthy investment from an up and coming brand with quality in abundance. Best of all, this red velvet won’t fill you full of empty calories…
