Happy Wednesday Lovelies! It’s been a bit of a crazy week already but isn’t that how the week after a holiday goes?!? Today’s post is a two part post with this extraordinary VELVET BLAZER. Post number two coming later this week.
The concept of these two posts is to showcase how one staple investment piece (velvet blazer) can transition for casual to formal, be worn with what you already own and is worth the price tag. Not going to lie THIS velvet blazer is an investment piece but I promise it is well worth the cost (and I have linked several other options in varying price points). For many years I have admired those who felt confident enough to wear a velvet blazer, especially in a casual manner, and so this year I decided it was time for me to give it a try. I have had my eye on this J.CREW BLAZER for a while and knew it was a quality piece to add to my wardrobe. And I highly recommend you add it to yours ASAP.

The silhouette and structure of this VELVET BLAZER is what set it a part from many others. I love the fit and that the quality is top notch. Adding this BLAZER to a simple TEE and DENIM (both of which you likely already own) look is a great way to elevate your daily style. Consider wearing your VELVET BLAZER with a pair of chinos and a button up. It is versatile enough to wear over a dress or paired with a skirt. The ideas is not to restrict your VELVET BLAZER to evening or night time affairs. It perfectly completes a casual day-time look. As any style icon will tell you a well fitting blazer can be worn with ANYTHING.
For the holiday season go with a VELVET BLAZER as there is something so special about velvet this time of year. Despite it being a major trend right now velvet always defines the holiday season due to its rich and robust nature. A VELVET BLAZER is a classic investment piece that you will wear year after year. If you are a little reluctant to make the full investment but want to try the trend I recommend THIS blazer one or try THIS one as they are in a lower price point. I love the tie detail on THIS blazer and it is a bit of a looser fit.
Coming later this week is how to style this same BLAZER in a bit more of a formal way.
