Oversized Grey Coat

coat c/o (size XS) // velvet tee (comes in 2 other colors) // jeans // mules // purse

No matter the year, I always find myself investing in a good coat. While the weather in LA might not reach blizzard temperatures, I cannot handle even the slightest chill. This coat is a happy medium. It's perfectly oversized, so you have enough room for chunky sweaters or layering. But in my case, just tossing over a velvet tee and having enough warmth. Does that make sense? It is a wool-blend, but lightweight so you don't look completely ridiculous. I just ignored the fact that there was a guy in a t-shirt and shorts walking around as I snapped these. I like to be comfortably warm (or will find the slightest excuse to wear winter clothes). Do you pick up a coat each year?

How to Wear Velvet During the Day

We have those trends we see, love and then think that it's just never going to see the light of day (outside of our closets). Raise your hand, if velvet fits into that? Yup! Well, it just doesn't seem appropriate for anything that isn't a fancy holiday party. It was slim pickings I would be going to any fancy party this year, so I made it my mission to not let that stop me. The things that motivated are questionable-I know. But the chances of something being able to be worn casually means it will A) get worn more and B) read A again. 

So here are a few tips to making velvet work for day time:
1. Don't invest too much money. Velvet is one of those fabrics that doesn't work all year long, so find a quality piece that's budget-friendly. This tank is under $35 and this tee is just $38. The quality for price on these cannot be beat! 

2. Try a color besides your typical holiday colors. Velvet in blush is less flashy due to it's soft hue (and I'm obsessed). The eye just notices another texture to your look, rather than the type of fabric.

3. Pair it will your basics. Grab a cozy cardigan or moto jacket and jeans=outfit complete! 

How do you feel about velvet worn casually?
