At one time velvet was reserved for the ceremonial robes of Kings and Queens, but these days it’s even showing up as simple tees! Here’s a look at a luxe new velvet tee that adds a touch of royalty to everyday jeans!
There’s just no getting around it. Velvet anything looks rich, elegant and expensive. It’s one of the reasons I fell in love with this velvet mock turtleneck tee.
I like a little extra, even when I’m wearing casual clothes, and the idea that a simple tee could be elevated just because it comes in a luxurious fabric was very exciting. This is such a simple, easy top but in velvet, it totally cranks up my weekend look.
Velvet has been rolled out like a red carpet this fall. We’ve seen tons of gorgeous velvet blazers (did you see my purple one?), party dresses and even bomber jackets. This luxe fabric draws you in with its soft look and makes you want to reach out and touch it.
Here, I’m wearing it with my favorite jeans Paige-Transcend high waist super stretch, and these fabulous over the knee boots by Vince Camuto that you have probably seen me in a lot lately. They’re suede, fun and have that soft, smooth look like velvet. Over the knee boots may be a stretch for some, I pushed my comfort zone a touch but now I really like them!
Black velvet is what we normally think of when we think of velvet, but it was this burnished orange shade that really drew me in. It is the softest orangey-rust, and it’s such a striking fall shade I had to have it. This tee also comes in a color called Savannah Moss ( gold), a lovely blush color which I debated about buying, and I just found the prettiest blue color. I love it with the Cognac Michael Kors bag.
When you have fabulous color + stunning texture, the simplest tee is elevated to a top-drawer look!
The short sleeves are perfect. I imagine long sleeves in velvet might get hot, plus the short sleeves give it a sporty look! They also allow for easy layering with a long cardigan if you like.
And did I mention how comfy this is!!!! Oh my gosh, it is like heaven. If you like the idea of an unfussy top that looks like a million then I suggest you take a closer look at this fab velvet tee!
