Velvet is such a luxe fabric and extremely tricky to style. It is easy to go overboard when styling Velvet. Recently the Grammy’s and BAFTA saw Velvet trending the red carpet. Velvet pantsuits, Velvet gowns and Velvet shoes are the latest trends flaunted by Celebrities both in Hollywood and Bollywood alike. I do own a few Velvet pieces in my wardrobe one being a black crop top and a pair of black velvet pumps. However I always wanted a deep wine hued Velvet piece in my wardrobe.
My quest for that Royal Wine Velvet piece came to an end when I stumbled upon this gorgeous Wine Velvet Blazer Dress by Tobi. (Click here to shop the same)
Blazer Dresses are uber stylish and are perfect to add that X Factor to your next party look. This Velvet Blazer dress by Tobi adds that mystery to the look. The Deep Wine colour looks royal and luxe. This look will definitely make you stand out from the rest of the Party Crowd.
Here I am wearing a black bandage mini dress by Valleygirl with a sweetheart neckline. I wore the Velvet Blazer dress over the Black Bandage dress here. You can style it with a bandeau or a crop top instead of a bandage dress like I have.
Styling Velvet can be tricky. Since this Velvet Blazer Dress is quite a bold statement in itself, I could have gone two ways with accessorising it. Either with a subtle jewellery or no jewellery look or with key statement pieces that will not take away from the Velvet Blazer Dress itself. I decided to go with the latter. I went with statement chandelier earrings with blue, black and silver stones and a big deep blue stone geometric ring both from Lovisa.
Shining Silver stiletto pumps by Therapy shoes were my choice of footwear. Similarly I completed the look with a round studded clutch by Olgaberg. I am wearing my favourite Vegan and cruelty free nail polish by Nail’d at Tiffany’s.
