STYLISH VELVET BLAZER FOR WINTER
Velvet has been a huge trend last couple of years. It started with tops, pants and dresses and now it is taking a new unexpected and classic form. The big part of winter trends in 2020. are velvet blazers. This famous and versatile piece can be worn as smart casual look, as well as a formal attire. Here are some tips on how to style a velvet blazer this winter.
PICK A UNIQUE DESIGN
Take the velvet blazer as the statement of your outfit. Standard velvet blazer is a good option, but a blazer with unique features can add that extra “wow” factor to your outfit. For example, pick a blazer with exaggerated lapels, sharp shoulders or an hourglass waist. Velvet blazers for women also look good with cuffed or 3/4 length sleeves. Extra long or high-waisted blazers are also a good choice.
WEAR IT AS A LAYERING PIECE
Keep it simple and use a velvet blazer as a layering piece. How about replacing your cardigan with a velvet blazer? Or if you are wearing a dress, just put a blazer over it. For a fun, flirty daytime look consider a short, printed dress and add a pair of ankle boots. Velvet goes well with almost anything, from denim to elegant pieces. Velvet blazers look especially great in dark shades like black or navy, and in rich jewel tones too. For a casual look you can pair it with dark denim jeans. It also looks good put-together with a denim skirt. If your velvet blazer is in dark color go for a dark-washed denim jeans or skirt. Some velvet colors that go well with denim are lipstick red, forest green, royal blue, and deep burgundy.
VELVET BLAZER DAY TO NIGHT
Another way you can wear a velvet blazer this winter is to make a suit by adding velvet pants. This look can transition day to night, just change your undershirt and the shoes. For the daytime you can wear it with a cotton shirt and some flat shoes, and for evening wear you can add a silk top and heels. You can wear a velvet blazer over some simple formal pants and dress, too for a night out or some formal occasion.
