How to Style Velvet Blazer
Velvet is so fun to wearing during the holidays. Almost always, I include something made out of velvet in my holiday and/or Christmas outfits. Something about the texture and the appearance of velvet gives it that holiday glam. You can wear the most basic piece and it immediately transforms your outfit.
Not everyone loves to wear sequins. Wearing velvet is a great alternative to sequins. Or if you love both, wearing sequins and velvet always looks great together. In fact, I am doing that in this outfit by wearing a velvet blazer and sequined top together. Want something more feminine, then check out this outfit. I combined a sequined floral top and velvet skirt.

Wearing Velvet For The Holidays
Like I said, velvet is PERFECT for the holidays. So the perfect time to style a velvet blazer is during the holiday season. To add holiday glam, especially if you are going to holiday parties, pair it with plaid or Christmas colors. In this outfit, I paired it with my wide-leg plaid pants. There are specks of green in it which gives it a Christmasy feel. I also love styling velvet with something shiny. So pick out a statement jewelry piece or maybe some dainty gold jewelry. In this outfit, I went with my classic gold monogram necklace (btw, this necklace would make an incredible gift!). For my velvet jumpsuit, I wore statement earrings.
You can never go wrong with wearing black. Black especially looks luxurious with velvet. Wearing black with velvet helps tie your outfit together. You may have different textures and patterns going on, but that hint of black (or you can go all black too!), keeps everything cohesive. For me, I decided to wear black ankle boots and a black sequined top.
If I had time, this style velvet blazer would look incredible with black skinny jeans or black leather pants (faux leather). And if you are wearing a colorful velvet blazer, it would look incredible with a black shirt. If you are wearing colorful pants (perhaps sequined pants), go with a classic black velvet blazer (I’ve also heard great things about the J.Crew Parke Blazer).
Wearing It As A Layering Piece
Keep it simple and use a velvet blazer as a layering piece. If you are gravitating towards a cardigan, how about replacing it with a velvet blazer? Or if you are wearing a dress, just put a blazer over it! So easy to do and it makes a big impact on your outfit! I’m currently eyeing this pink one. It would make an easy transition from the holidays to Spring!
Stylish Velvet Blazer
I’m obsessed with my blazer from Universal Standard. If you are not familiar with Universal Standard, they are the most size inclusive brand out there. They have 40 different sizes. I go into detail about them in this post. Their sizing metrics are different than most brands because they want the size to truly reflect most women’s sizes.
Below are some amazing stylish velvet blazers that will immediately elevate your outfit.
My blazer is the most comfortable blazer I own. It doesn’t feel tight around the arms and armpit. In fact, I can freely move them around. It’s so flattering and comes in gold and black as well. I’m wearing a size 3XS (size 2). So it does fit true to size.
So, how do you style your velvet blazer?
