Often times, when you wear a blazer, you look smarter and more professional. Another side benefit is that it can make you look slimmer. So if you can dress casually in your workplace, it’s almost always a good idea to wear a blazer to work no matter what you wear with it. Even so, repeating the same thing five times a week can get a little boring. Just like at work, if you find yourself repeating the same thing too many times and feeling bored, give a little twist here and there to make things more fun. In the case of the blazer, you can do this by switching colors or trying different fabrics. In this blog post, I’ll explore the latter idea. To be more specific, I’ll talk about how to wear the velvet blazer. Let’s check out some of the best outfit ideas I’ve put together for you right now.
Blue velvet blazer & pants
One of the easiest ways to style a velvet blazer is to buy a velvet suit so you don’t have to think about what to wear for your bum. For example, wear a blue velvet suit with a white buttoned shirt and black oxford shoes.
Burgundy velvet blazer with black sweater & jeans
For a mature and feminine look, consider this lovely outfit. For the top, wear a black sweater with a burgundy velvet blazer. Combine them with black skinny jeans and pointy leather boots. A black knitted scarf will help glue all the pieces together perfectly.
Black velvet blazer with an all black outfit
One interesting feature of wearing a black velvet blazer is that it can add extra dimension to an all-black outfit rather than just turning the outfit into a muddy black garment. For example, wear the black velvet blazer with a black sweater, black skinny jeans and leather ankle boots. To add a little color, you can wear a light gray linen scarf without ruining the entire black and deep theme.
Black blazer with white turtleneck and jeans
Team a black velvet blazer with a white fitted turtleneck for a chic, casual outfit. Add a pair of ripped skinny jeans and black ballerina shoes to the equation.
Wear it with a white t-shirt and black skinny jeans
If you’re a fan of blazers, you should already know that when you wear a blazer with a street outfit of t-shirt and jeans, you can often have a smart Silicon Valley look without trying. Of course, everyone below the surface is trying so hard to achieve something. Anyway, this outfit consists of a white t-shirt, black skinny jeans and white sneakers. Up to this point the outfit looks okay, but nothing interesting. Wearing a black velvet blazer can instantly take it to a whole new level.
Two-piece set consisting of a red velvet blazer and skirt
Here’s another outfit idea that includes a two-piece velvet set, but this time it’s a skirt instead of the pants. You can just wear the red blazer and skirt with a black blouse. For the shoes, I would recommend wearing neither the red nor the black shoes. That would have looked too neat and uncomfortably balanced. I would recommend a pair of nude heels instead.
Burgundy blazer with gray printed t-shirt and skinny jeans
As shown in a previous idea, wearing a blazer with a casual street outfit almost always works. In this case, the burgundy blazer looks pretty good in combination with a funky gray printed t-shirt, skinny jeans and white sneakers.
Long purple velvet blazer with jeans boyfriend shirt
In the previous ideas, most of the blazers I covered are the typical short and slim fit shorts that can help you look elegant and slim. However, if you are already skinny, you can try this outfit idea. I’m not saying the other outfits don’t suit you. I’m just saying that this particular idea is not going to help you look slimmer. Back to that outfit, just wear a denim shirt with an oversized purple velvet blazer for the top. Combine these pieces with black leather gaiters and white sneakers.
Wear it with a black tank top and ripped jeans
Here’s a very casual way to style a burgundy velvet blazer. Wear it with a black tank top and ripped cuffed jeans. Wear open-toed ankle boots for shoes. If you are interested in similar shoes you should check out our blog post on open toe boots.
Wear a black blazer with a white shirt and gray chinos
Wearing a velvet blazer as a business outfit is not that difficult. For example, you can wear a black velvet blazer with a white shirt, gray chinos, and black heels. Alternatively, you can wear a gray pencil skirt instead of the chinos.
Black velvet blazer with a felt hat
This outfit idea is an artistic and refreshing way to style a black velvet blazer. Wear it with a denim shirt for the top. Wear cuffed jeans with cuffs and black studded loafers for the buttocks. Add that final artistic touch by wearing a black felt hat. By the way, we also have a blog post about black felt hat outfit ideas that you might want to check out.
Wear it with a gray printed t-shirt and jeans with cuffs
This is an outfit idea to show you that a black velvet outfit goes well with a gray printed t-shirt, jeans and a low top Converse.
Wear it with a white printed t-shirt and skinny jeans
Similar to the previous idea, although the outfit looks much more elegant when the opposite is replaced with short leather boots.
Shocking pink velvet blazer with leather gaiters
This is a really eye-catching outfit. The concept is to wear a shocking pink velvet blazer with an all-black outfit consisting of a black sweater, leather leggings and ankle boots.
Wear it with a pink blouse and burgundy leather shorts
This is such an interesting color combination of pink and burgundy that I didn’t know it was going to work until I actually see it. For the top, wear a pink blouse with a burgundy velvet blazer. For a chic outfit, complete your outfit with burgundy leather shorts with pink heels.
Hope you enjoy the velvet blazer outfit ideas I just shared. These gorgeous blazers are just blazers with an interesting twist. Try it. It’s surprisingly easy to pull off.
