Hello and cheers to Friday! I wanted to do a “holiday style week” after Thanksgiving and feature a new holiday look every day of the week, but things are already selling out, so I’m jumping the gun and posting this velvet jeans outfit today.
This outfit answers the burning question: What do you wear when the party invitation says “holiday casual”? (You wouldn’t believe how many times people ask me that. Haha!)
First of all, how adorable is this lacy clip dot sleeve blouse from LOFT? I think the sleeve detail is so gorgeous.
Unfortunately, it is the piece that caused me to post this outfit today… because it already sold out in most sizes. Womp… womp…
I know, it’s so unfair. But there is no shortage of pretty black tops out there right now, so I rounded up some of my favorites in the shopping widget at the end of this post.
Meanwhile, let’s discuss the rest of the outfit.
Because this blouse has a high neckline and a plain front, I wore this layered station necklace.
My earrings are old, but any blingy bauble will work, or smaller studs would look fine too since the necklace provides a focal point, and there’s a lot going on in the blouse.
These velvet jeans came in a Trunk Club, and I’m obsessed. I love this deep currant color, and they’re the Paige Verdugo style that I like so much. I was super bummed to see them almost sold out at Nordstrom, but then I found them at Revolve.
Revolve has free shipping and free returns, and if they’re new to you, you can get a 10% off coupon code for signing up to get their emails.
I often go for my black suede pumps with holiday outfits, but I decided to pull out these suede sandals for this look since I have the perfect pedicure for this outfit. It’s CND Dark Lava, and I love it for holiday.
I wore these shoes several times during the summer, and the black suede works well for holiday looks as well. They’re similar to the popular Sam Edelman Yaro sandals, but with a lower heel and the pretty scalloped strap.
Finally, I carried this metallic crackled leather clutch. This bag comes in so handy for date nights and events. The light champagne color goes equally well with gold or silver, and it’s just a nice basic piece that’s perfect for when you want a bag with a touch of glam that isn’t too formal.
