Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics. I love anything soft, and luxurious. Velvet is both of those things. With so many velvet choices out there for the fall season, I decided to go for a comfortable, oversize velvet blazer which can be worn casually.
When the velvet blazer trend starting taking the streets by storm in September, I was excited knowing I could pull my grey velvet jacket out of the closet which I purchased about fifteen years ago. I love how a velvet blazer or jacket can elevate a pair of jeans, and make an otherwise casual outfit look refined, and put together; yet velvet blazers are so effortless! Not to mention cozy. 😉
I dress casually most days, so investing in pieces which can be worn often are key when I look to make a purchase. Nothing irks me more than buying something which ends up sitting in my closet. Since I already own a more fitted, velvet jacket, I decided to go with an oversize velvet jacket for the fall 2016, and winter 2017, seasons.
This outfit took me from day into evening last Friday. I wore this outfit during the day, then for the evening, I met up with a few of my friends for dinner at Steamers in Los Gatos; if you go, be sure to have Tiramisu for dessert! It’s to-die-for!
In order to go from day into evening, I switched from my Proenza Schouler Hava satchel pictured above, to my classic black Chanel Boy Bag. Voila! Day into evening, love that!
Oversize velvet blazers can be worn so many different ways this fall season! I was in the mood to wear loose clothing on Friday, so I paired my oversize velvet blazer with baggy boyfriend jeans. For a more structured, yet still casual look, this velvet blazer can be worn with skinny jeans and heels or booties. It can also be thrown over a casual dress, or black dress. For a more “street” look, this velvet blazer can be worn with cut-off denim shorts, biker/moto boots or creepers, and a concert tee.
