This time of year is so magical— everything from the cheery music, time with family, holiday lights and decorations. We even had our first snow of the season, so it’s actually starting to feel like winter here. I love a good holiday party and the chance to get a little more dressed up than usual. We already have some holiday parties on the calendar…from work events, weekend festivities and family gatherings. I’d been searching for something a little different, something velvety, that I could wear to holiday parties and on an everyday basis. I love the elegance and feel of velvet, so I was pumped when I came across this velvet jumpsuit.
This rich-black velvet jumpsuit immediately stood out to me when I was shopping for a holiday outfit. From all the tulle and sequins dresses I found, this velvet jumpsuit was the perfect medium between comfort and elegance. It’s classic and simple, but far from boring. The jumpsuit is incredibly flattering. The top portion hugs all the right places while the wideleg trousers offer a flowy and relaxed looked. I also like this one shoulder jumpsuit!
I was initially going to wear this velvet jumpsuit with a white turtleneck. Since I was going for a bolder look, I paired the jumpsuit with a black and white striped turtleneck and matching striped earrings from SugarFix. The combo is perfect and blends the right amount of classy and funky.
The one pair of heels that get me through any holiday party are these textured Alice and Olivia pumps (love this one and this one). With a 4 1/2 inch heal, they add some height while still looking classy. I also have the same pump in gold, which I wear like a nude pump. These black and gold pumps are festive too!
