14 Dec Turning Heads Linkup -More Velvet for the Holidays- and Ways to Style It
There is more velvet in store! Yes, I love this fabric, especially around the Holiday season.
This Outfit for the Holidays
You might be inclined to reach for black with burgundy ,but give it another go.
I started this look with the jacket that is ages old, bought secondhand, as is every one of my velvet blazers.
The boots gave me the idea. There are bits of rust, burgundy, navy and gold in these brocade Franco Sarto boots and I knew just the sleeveless dress to pair it with.
My Mango sleeveless dress has been styled various times on the blog and I find that I can style for any season.
The beaded necklace was gifted to me last year by Earth and Moon Design. “It was inspired by Chanel’s Cafe Society collection and the styles of the 20s.” You can read about it HERE.
Other ways of styling-
A velvet blazer, such as this, can begins the making of a wonderful outfit for the Winter or spiced up for the Holidays.
Wear it more casually with a pair of dark denim and a bodysuit . Nothing to tuck in, and a very sharp look. Add some sparkle with your accessories and perhaps as black strappy or mettalic shoe.
Pair it with a pair of black trousers, a silk blouse and pumps. There is nothing like the look of luxe materials to look smart for an occassion.
Try mixing your velvet blazer with a sparkly sequined top, black jeans and a pair of classic heels. Add gold or silver jewelry for sparkle, depending on your coloring.
If your velvet jacket is longer, pair it with some faux leather leggings or if you feel especially festive, some sequined leggings. A neutral colored blouse will be lovely with this look.
Well, I just came home from spending two weeks at my mom’s in Pittsburgh. Let’s just say, after 20 years in the Carolinas, I forgot how darn cold it gets in Pittsburgh! I did dress in layers and took my boy, Gibson out for walks each day, but when you fingers start to hurt and your ears turn red, it’s cold! Had a great time there and I got to chat and spend time with my younger brother Matt. We visited a Winery that looked like a castle and enjoyed several meals out. My nephew Aedan, is 4, and I got to help him build puzzles and spend some quality time with him too.
We are now in NC and it took a few days for me to recuperate. I am grateful I have dry needling Wednesday. Car rides are not my favorite, but until I can flap my wings and fly with my dogs on my back, that is what I have to do. (They would be too nervous on a plane)
The next stop will be Harleysville, PA for Christmas to visit hubby’s family. I am just getting around to decorating and have done some this weekend. Hoping to make Rania’s Gingerbread Biscotti, which sounds so good!
