Velvet anything and I am in.
Ever since I can remember velvet has been a fabric to love. It is the luxurious nature, the soft touch and the feeling I am dressed for any occasion that has me so smitten.
My latest infatuation is with the velvet blazer. Truthfully I can’t and probably won’t stop at one. I thought a black one would suffice – and it did for a time – but as I see these jewel tones more and more online and in the shops, I am lost. I feel the emerald green and the burgundy are no-brainers. Not to mention midnight blue velvet with jeans or black slightly wider tuxedo pants.
Is velvet something we all love?
I am too biased to be able to see clearly. A velvet blazer makes me feel together despite what is worn underneath and also well dressed and elegant. Velvet was a “grown-up” fabric in my mind or one used in interiors. These days I like velvet in my closet and on my sofas.
The hardest choice with a velvet jacket is which colour?
I don’t think one colour is any less practical than another. A burgundy can look as formal or as casual as the emerald or the darkest of blues. If grey hair is your gig then it really works with velvet; maybe it is wishful thinking on my part. It could be my excuse for wanting this emerald green blazer?
If you are a velvet lover like me, don’t just sit on it ;) try this one. xv
