This time of year it’s fun to break out our festive clothes. But what if you don’t have an occasion to wear them? What if your lifestyle has changed and you don’t go to dress-up parties? Don’t let these luxe and fun clothes languish in your closet. Style them with ultra-casual pieces so you can enjoy them.
My lifestyle is ultra-casual and I wear a lot of jeans so velvet and denim is a favorite pairing for me.
I styled this jacket for you last year with things already in my wardrobe. The suede boots aren’t particularly dressy, the pants are stretch crepe ones I wear on a daily basis, the sweater tank came from an Eileen Fisher outlet, and the earrings are inherited from my grandmother. The jacket is the only new thing and it’s now on sale. A classic velvet blazer never goes out of style.
Last weekend I paired this same jacket with a chambray shirt and blue jeans. I popped the collar and decided to add a vintage pin at the neck. The velvet and sparkly pin are enough to feel festive for a day of holiday shopping or running errands.
If it wasn’t the day after Thanksgiving, I probably would have done a half or full tuck on my shirt and worn a tonal belt. It would have helped my legs look longer.
Have you tried pairing velvet with denim?
Thanks for reading ladies and wear what makes you feel confident.
