Velvet can illicit all kinds of reactions. For some, it conjures up memories of horny octogenarians in smoking jackets. For others, and we hope you’re in this set, it equates to velvet ropes – and the cool girls rocking velvet booties and jackets behind them. Right now, we’re really in to the latter; velvet jackets just seem to go hand in hand with holiday time.
Give your old standby blazer a break and opt for the plush alternative (hey, even Sarah Jessica Parker is a fan!). It’s an easy way to glam up any outfit, whether paired with skinny jeans and booties for a casual Christmas get together, or with a sequin cocktail dress and pumps for New Year’s Eve festivities.
