Mollie King at the ARIA Awards

Trust stylish singer Mollie King to deliver the goods.

The blonde chanteuse, of The Saturdays fame, attended the ARIA Awards last night in a look that was both seductive and approachable.

The petite 31-year-old opted for a juxtaposition of edgy vinyl trousers with a sumptuous button-up velvet number. With low-key makeup and her hair tousled into effortless waves, the whole look screamed 'date night' done to perfection.

Unfortunately, Mollie's top is by cult-status designer Magda Butrym (a firm favourite of Pandora Sykes, Leandra Medine, Danielle Bernstein et al) and costs a cool €905.

Girl - even if he's taking you to Paris to eat at the Eiffel Tower restaurant, that's a serious price tag for a top. Even though Mollie does make a convincing case for it... 

If your night out is more like dinner and drinks in Dublin city - we got you. Here's a roundup of affordable velvet tops that will seal the deal (so to speak) - especially when paired with a great pair of leather pants and stacked gold jewellery. 

Anyway, who needs a view of Paris when you look this good?
