How to wear a velvet blazer

Wearing a blazer often makes you look smarter and more professional. Another side benefit is that it can make you look slimmer. So if you can dress casually at your place of work, it’s almost always a good idea to wear a blazer to work, no matter what you wear with it. Still, repeating the same thing five times a week can get a bit boring. Just like at work, if you find yourself repeating the same thing too many times and feeling bored, give a little twist here and there to make things more fun. In the case of the blazer, you can do this by alternating colors or trying different fabrics. In this blog post, I will explore the latter idea. To be more specific, I will talk about how to wear the velvet blazer. Let’s take a look at some of the best outfit ideas I’ve just rounded up for you.

Here’s another outfit idea that includes a velvet two-piece set, but this time with a skirt instead of the pants. You can simply wear the red blazer and skirt with a black blouse. As for the shoes, I would recommend not wearing either the red or black shoes. That would have looked too neat and uncomfortably balanced. I would recommend a pair of bare heels instead.
