I think velvet can definitely be tricky to wear sometimes if you’re not sure how to style it, as it can be quite a heavy material. I used to wear it abundance as a teen (hello goth phase, you are missed) so I think I’m more comfortable than most, but it’s a gorgeous material to wear ┬áThis blazer caught my eye on a recent shopping trip and I knew it had to be mine. I’d be searching for the perfect, oversized, relaxed-smoking-jacket style blazer for quite a while now, and┬ádecided to pair it with this Kate Moss/Saint Laurent vibes gold shirt as my nod to the party season for today’s look. Of course, I always keep it casual with a good old pair of black skinny jeans and some boots for some daytime luxe.

But anyway, rambling aside and back to velvet. There’s a few different ways to wear it I think so here’s some links to some of my fave velvety pieces:
