Velvet… it’s rich and luxurious, and it looks great worn with other dressy pieces, but that’s only one way to style it. Today in my weeklong Wardrobe series called 2 Ways/7 days, I ‘m showing you how velvet can easily be worked into casual outfits too. In fact, it’s très chic to do so!
Have a look at how you can wear this stunning velvet pinstripe jacket by night and day.
Velvet Blazer – Dressy Look
A gorgeous wine colored velvet jacket is stunning after hours with a sophisticated black sheath dress, but have you ever thought to wear this with a jumpsuit? When you’re going to an evening event and you need a cute topper, this pinstripe velvet blazer makes a stunning cover-up. Talk about making an entrance!
It’s definitely a piece you could wear into the party, or even keep on during, since it’s short, fitted and figure flattering. You might even want to slip it off and drape it around your shoulders to make a sexy little statement.
Pinstripes give this fashion-forward jacket an executive vibe which means this jacket would also look fabulous with a silk blouse, a black pencil skirt and high heels at an important business dinner.
Velvet Blazer – Casual Look
It’s cool these days to mix high-end with low-end which is exactly what you get when you combine a luxurious velvet jacket like this with everyday rough and tumble denim. A t-shirt may feel funny at first under what you are used to being a dressy fabric, but you’ll see the look is totally modern.
Pair this look with suede booties and a cute crossbody bag, and you’ve got an upscale casual look that hits that’s right on target. Don’t you love getting lots of wear out of something you love and have paid good money for?
