It’s that time of year when the leaves start to change color, the fireplace gets lit, and all the pretty velvet tops start arriving in stores. Velvet tops are one of my favorites for fall because they are so elegant and cozy at the same time. Remember this rust velvet top I wore when I first got Bella?
Here’s a look at some of the latest and how to wear a velvet top when you want to uplevel a pair of pants.
1. Blue Velvet Top with Chic Necktie
Here’s a stunning top that will make a pair of black pants look like a million bucks! This regal blue velvet top with the chic tie neckline is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas when you want to look effortlessly chic. You can create a bow with your tie, or leave it hanging loosely as is; either way, you will look divine!
Like most velvet tops these days, this faux velvet. It’s much more practical because you can throw it in the wash, hang dry, and have it coming out looking fantastic!
I like the richness of black with blue- so sophisticated, but you could certainly wear this top with regular jeans. This one is going to go fast!

2. Black Velvet Turtleneck
A cozy cowlneck is always welcome this time of year, and when it’s in black velvet, it looks extra fabulous. I’ve paired this black velvet cowl neck tunic with camel jeans, leopard loafers, and a brown saddle bag for an upscale, casual look. A black velvet, long sleeve top like this, that is long and flowy and covers your bottom, would also look fantastic with black leggings and riding boots or booties!
