The title really says it all – velvet blazers aren’t really just for the boys! After last week’s merlot colored dress I must have something for the wine hues because this deep claret blazer – a color even named after red table wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France – hits all the right notes for me with it’s deep purplish red color.
At least half a dozen wore nice velvet blazers to my 4,000 person holiday party and while I opted for this black off the shoulder dress this blazer would have fit right in. I decided to pair it with all black for this look to really let it stand out but couldn’t resist throwing in a different pattern and these faux leather leggings added just that extra pop I was looking for!

I did not end up wearing this look to any of my holiday parties in New York City though I really should because as of last night I am safely in Florida for the rest of the year and while I have a few more holiday parties this look doesn’t quite work for 80 degree weather! Stay tuned to Insta though to see what I do end up wearing!
What do you think of this look?
Such a gorgeous blazer and I love those pants!
I will have to take a look. A new twist for me on a holiday look.
Wow, those leggings look amazing on you. I like the fullness of the blazer look tapering down to the sleekness of the leggings and booties. You rock that look!

These are really nice jackets, I’d rock one for the right look
The color is simply divine on you! I agree, girls can wear velvet blazers too!
One Merry Christmas to you. Two I love the fashionable blazer. Three I like those leather leggings. Perfect for a night out. and I like the booties too. Enjoy Florida. My Office Christmas party yesterday was a blast. Part 2 is today.
