Holiday season is almost here and with that comes holiday-party-season. At this time, you’re probably looking around for this year’s holiday-suit. You want something stylish and more fun than the standard grey wool suit that you wear to work everyday. If you haven’t tried velvet before, this year is the year to do so! Velvet is a rather unique suit fabric, guaranteed to make you differ among the crowd (in a good way), and it’s not a fabric you’d wear on a daily basis (probably) - so right now is the perfect time to look for your next Velvet piece.
Remember, velvet is a statement fabric! Here are some of our favorite Velvet pieces that are sure to make a fashion statement.
Wear velvet as a full suit…
… or as a blazer
If you feel wearing a full velvet suit is a bit much, or doesn't fit the occasion, why not wear tailored pants paired with a velvet blazer? Pair your velvet blazer with cotton or wool pants. To keep the look smart-casual, choose darker colored pants such as grey or black.
If you're feeling extra adventurous, pair the black paisley velvet blazer with red internal lining with matching dark red pants.
If you're looking for other colors than the more standard blue and black, choose a red/burgundy velvet blazer or a brown velvet blazer.
Remember, regardless what velvet piece you choose to wear, make sure it fits you perfectly. If you wear a velvet piece that's too big it will show more than in other fabrics. Pair your Velvet Blazer or Suit with a button-down shirt in a color that doesn't distract the color of the velvet, such as a plain black shirt or white shirt.
