Are you looking for something special to make a perfect outfit for Christmas Eve, Christmas Breakfast (or brunch or dinner), New Years Eve, New Years Day, etc. etc.? I have something for you.
Velvet skinnies with stretch are a great holiday option and you can find a pair at the Gap, which means you can also most likely get them for 40% off bringing them to $27. They come in several colors and I want them ALL. From beautiful burgundy to a stunning pewter, they can be easily paired with dressy and casual pieces.
I initially went to all the black tops in my closet, but stopped and had a much needed intervention. “You don’t have to wear black with everything,” I said. “Let the comfort of black go.” So, I paired my velvet skinnies with an oversized cream sweater and my favorite Frye boots for a casual look.
I paired it with a beautiful knit and sparkle flats for a dressed up, let’s go to the Nutcracker outfit.
My denim shirt goes with just about everything, and velvet is no exception.
I made a “coffee with friends” or “have coffee at home on couch” casual look with this top from Old Navy (bargain!) and added a pink sweater to tie it together. Add in my sparkle ballet flats again.
Lastly, I have a lovely green silk top that has been calling “put me on!” So I gave it a go. Slipped on some nude sandals with gemstones to match, and I have a really nice take me out to dinner option.
I paired them with a light pink faux fur. Well, I wish. Until the day that beautiful coat is back in stock (soon pretty please!), I will be pairing these wine-colored velvet pants with a whole lot of color because they go with so much and I’ve kicked myself out of the black clothing rut.
