How to Wear Velvet

how-to-wear-velvet

Velvet is having a serious moment right now, and I couldn’t be happier!  The fall trend is back this year, and I’ve already stocked my closet with provisions.  I love that it has such a regal, refined, and sultry vibe.  I own a few black staples, but I have been dipping my toe into a few bright color pieces to add to my collection.  A blazer is a great way to wear velvet.  This jacket comes in 5 drool worthy colors — the red and the pink options are giving me life!

Because velvet is such a rich fabric, I like to wear velvet it in two ways.  The first way is to style it with another rich fabric, and leather leggings do the trick.  Good leather pants are a great investment piece.  I promise you that you’ll have them forever if you care for them correctly.  I recommend purchasing your regular size to one size smaller, as they do tend to stretch out a bit.

Another way to wear velvet is to juxtapose the look with a rugged denim.  Ripped, distressed, raw — the edgier, the better!  I styled this blazer with a black velvet camisole for an enhanced effect, but a silk top would look great too.

Velvet blazer in cabernet, but I also love rose and zinnia! (fit is TTS, wearing a size 6), also available here (P.S. if your size and color preference is not available, check back frequently for restocks!) This tie sleeve velvet blazer is also amazing for $99! //  Velvet camisole  //  Leather leggings (took my normal size 4), also available here — and I love this popular vegan option!  //  Cluster earrings (this color is sold out for now, but I love the other two colors!)  //  Celine sunglasses  //  Gucci metallic gold clutch (old) but I love this luxe velvet one and this gold knot classic clutch  //  Rose gold cap toe pumps (J.Crew, old) but I love these rose gold metallic pumps (only $89!) and these ones are only $20!
