I’ve always enjoyed wearing velvet in the fall and winter however I have to regret that in the past I’ve been closed-minded to the idea of wearing it outside of a formal event. However, lately I’ve been inspired to wear crushed velvet everywhere and with everything. The beauty of personal style is that we can wear what makes us the most happy and feel like our best self and shouldn’t feel bound to “Fashion rules”. Sometimes it’s okay to push yourself outside of the box because in those moments where you may feel vulnerable in a piece you wouldn’t normally wear, magic can happen.
For this look It’s about keeping it clean and classic. A romantic velvet jacket paired back to a modern wash of denim and updated traditional button down are what ground the look. Pair it back with a heavy knit scarf for an effortless finish and sharp on trend metallic shades to take it to an outstanding and head turning presentation. The look is quite easy, its just a matter of pushing yourself to try something new. I love the idea of playing with fun colors as well like the jewel tone jackets I’ve linked above! Let me know what you think and how you would wear crushed velvet.
