black velvet jacket

This velvet jacket is several years old now – I pulled it out to see how I might wear it this fall with the new velvet trends -

The potential problem with velvet is it can make you look overdressed.  So the challenge was to dress it down in fresh ways -  I tried -

a really casual and bright T-shirt dress -

jeggings and a well loved leather handbag -

plaid, a khaki skirt, and penny loafers -
