Jessica London’s velvet blazer was featured in Naturally Fashionable’s recent blog post.
Apparently, velvet is making a comeback by taking a look at some of the runways during NYFW 2014. Velvet was huge in the 90’s, but it has been a staple in my closet for awhile. I have worn velvet jackets and blazers for many years, whether it was on trend or not. Velvet gives off a menswear vibe and very sophisticated look, which I enjoy. It is a no-go for a lot of people because they believe that this fabric has an old-fashion feeling, or they just are unsure how to style such a piece. I really do understand some of these apprehensions, you definitely have to be careful. Velvet must be worn in a very updated and contemporary way, and I don’t know a better way to do that then to pair it with a printed pant.
