A Little Everyday Glam…
Velvet isn’t just for fancy occasions anymore. Personally, I love seeing it worn as part of an everyday look; it adds a luxe texture and dash of insouciance. A velvet jacket is a no-brainer…wear it with jeans or over your LBD. Even more fun in an unexpected color like this gold blazer. (Offered in Misses up to US size 16 and in Petites. Other colors available too.)
Dark green is a color that works well with many complexions, and with lots of other colors. I like the un-fussy look of this jacket (offered in Misses 00-16, Petites size 00-12, also in Black and Navy.)
If you prefer something a little less structured, this pretty blue jacket can be worn open or tied at the waist with the included belt. Offered in XS-XL.
On the more budget-friendly side, I really like the ruched sleeves on this simple jacket. Offered in sizes XS-XL, also in Navy.
And I’m going to risk posting this one again (it seems to play hide and seek on the website) because it’s such a fabulous piece.
Dresses & Tunics
Fancy doesn’t have to be fussy. Here’s a pretty blue shift dress (Plus) that could be accessorized for varying levels of formality. (Before you write it off due to the short length, know that the model on this image is 5’10”.) For those of you who have mentioned that you need something dressy for a cruise, this would be an easy and packable option.
Here’s another option with “cruise potential.” Though it’s styled here with jeans, I could see this tunic (Plus) being worn either a pair of velvet leggings (Plus) or open as a jacket over a satin top and silky palazzo pants. The tunic is also available in black and dark green.
For a more budget-friendly option, an easy wrap dress. I’ve shown Navy here but it’s also offered in two other colors, and up to size 24.
Tops, Skirts & Pants
I picked up these velvet “easy pants” in navy during the last promotion, and they are FAB. Four colors, in Misses, Petite and Tall lengths.
This velvet pleated skirt is a pull-on style, and offered in Misses XS-XL.
Simple, elegant and timeless, a black a-line skirt in Plus.
Do you have any velvet pieces in your wardrobe? How do you like to wear them?
