Today’s Outfit: Like Velvet

5 Oct

Velvet can go one of two ways:  Smoking jacket-cheesy a la Heff (or) fall-appropriate, color-rich cute.  I’m thinking that I skew toward the latter with my velvet jacket today.  What I love about velvet is that colors are amplified and look deeper and more saturated than on matte fabrics.  If you want to wear velvet, wear only one item (i.e. a jacket or a fitted pair of pants) and allow the rest of your clothes to fade into the background.

For those of you who are confused by color, teal is a universally flattering one that goes with every skin tone, hair color and eye color.  Use that to your advantage.
