Velvet is such a stylish fabric to wear because it adds lush points to any look, so a velvet blazer is sure to stand out. Perfect dressed up or down, a velvet blazer looks sophisticated, especially in rich colours such as black, burgundy, emerald green and mustard yellow. This monochrome look featuring striped jeans and laser cut black strap heels, is a great subtle lines and stripes outfit idea. The vertical stripes of the jeans nicely compliment the horizontal lines of the heels. This along with the studded top, creates great style contrast and dimension at the same time.
WAYS TO WEAR VELVET
For a fabulous finish, tying a silver chain belt over the black velvet blazer, gives a flattering feminine look by cinching in the waist of the oversized jacket. This particular blazer is a vintage piece that once belonged to my father and it’s easy to see why it remains a fashion favourite. Not only is it comfortable to wear, but it is a versatile and quality wardrobe staple. Proving its worth through the
years decades, with other outfits like how to style an oversized blazer. Blazers are classic pieces but there are so many other ways to wear velvet that won’t look dated so easily. Outfits like how to wear a sequin blazer show you how effortlessly elegant velvet slim leg trousers can be. While a velvet plissé skirt is a chic addition to an all black look.
For accessories, nothing completes this statement look better than the clear crystal statement necklace, pearl mix bracelet and crystal anklet. They are all very exceptional pieces from the new Abigail Ayoola x Graced London Crystal Jewellery Collection. A very special collaboration that will launch next week.
