Updated Pants Suit // Navy Velvet Blazer


A trendy riff on the classic pants suit, this velvet blazer and tapered pant combo was the perfect 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 beauty 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 move easily and comfortably all day (and night).  I’m also a particular fan of the black contrast trim along the shawl collar, which adds just the right finishing touch and makes it super wearable with your favorite black basics.
