A trendy riff on the classic pants suit, this velvet blazer and tapered pant combo was the best ensemble for yesterday’s long day of work meetings. You know from this recent post that the velvet blazer is one of my favorite pieces of the season—easily dressed up for work or dressed down for casual drinks with friends. This navy appeal that I’m wearing today is a particular favorite because it somehow looks like a structured blazer, but feels like you’re wearing a comfy cardigan. Tt doesn’t have any the stiffness often felt when wearing a blazer and allows you to step easily and easily all day (and night). I’m also a particular fan of the black contrast trim along the shawl collar, which adds just the ideal finishing touch and makes it incredibly wearable with your favorite black basics.
