This month, we're talking all about versatility. What better way to put the concept to the test than to style one of our very own fall/winter pieces?
Take for example, this navy velvet blouse/cape. A velvet piece is surely something that can intimidate a fashionista upon first glance, but we've dressed it up and down to give you an idea of how to maximize this piece and remix it into your fall wardrobe.
1. Everyday Casual
Perfect for brunch with the girls, a quick trip to the mall or even a daytime festivity, velvet can be made casual by keeping simplicity key. We paired the cape with a light wash pair of jeans to counterbalance the richness and depth. Over the cape, we fixed on a contrasting scarf, a day bag and some neutral booties. This look not only screams fall, but its one that you can re-wear over and over full well knowing that you just pulled off a designer piece in the most effortless way.
2. Dressy Work Look
When it comes to your 9-5, velvet can become even more challenging. How do you dress it up without becoming too dressy? We know the trick. Soften the darkness of the cape down with pink cigarette trousers, nude heels, this Fabletics Work Bag tote and a statement necklace. Blush pink a underutilized hue we were dawned with this NYFW and it's definitely going to be the perfect color moving through the winter back into spring.
3. Formal Fit
Delving more into the formal look, more is more when it comes to styling for the fall and winter. This is where some smart pairing comes into play. We've layered the velvet cape with a matching lengha to give some more dimension to the looks. Wearing these together is perfect to make a more dramatic look. Add on a few heavy long necklaces, statement earrings and your favorite party clutch. Maybe even a tikka/jhumar if you're feeling extra experimental!
