Happy Wednesday! I was really excited when I came across this AMAZING velvet bomber jacket by Free People! I love it for several reasons, first, it’s VELVET, enough said! Anything velvet this season is really on trend, it’s so chic and edgy, the perfect thing to wear every day, to a holiday party, and even on New Year’s Eve. Second, it’s a bomber jacket, I’m a sucker for bomber jackets, they’re so versatile and can be worn casual with jeans and booties or dressed up with leather pants and some killer heels. Finally, I’m really into this gorgeous dark gray shade, FYI, on line they are calling this color NAVY, however, it’s more of a dark slate gray shade. I’ll be wearing this jacket this weekend to a holiday party I’m hosting at my house for all of my high school girl friends with leather pants and my favorite burgundy suede heels. I paired this amazingly chic velvet bomber with 3 wardrobe staples that every woman should have in her closet.
WARDROBE STAPLE NUMBER 1: I chose to pair my velvet bomber with some simple and clean black jeans (with no rips) surprising I know, LOL! It is necessary to have at least one pair of classic black jeans in your closet to wear to more formal gatherings. These jeans are by J Brand, one of my favorite denim designers, they’re high-rise so they make your legs look super long and slender which is always a plus! They’re also super comfortable, something I always look for in a good pair of jeans. They are slightly cropped and run true to size, I’m wearing a size 25. If you don’t have a good pair of classic black jeans in your wardrobe these would be the perfect addition!
WARDROBE STAPLE NUMBER 2: I’m obsessed with skinny scarves, they’re so cool and effortless! I love wearing them wrapped high around my neck so it looks like I’m wearing a choker, another hot trend this season. The one I’m recommending is by Halogen, one of Nordstrom’s best brands, and the price point is AMAZING, only $19 for this amazingly chic velvet skinny scarf! I wear mine all the time with simple tees and leather jackets, they really take any look to the next level.
WARDROBE STAPLE NUMBER 3: Did you know that suede shoes in general look more expensive than any other shoes? When I’m buying a pair of shoes and deciding between suede or leather, I almost always choose suede and that’s why. These black suede pumps are by Sam Edelman and they’re actually pretty comfortable for a closed toe pump, the heel height is only 3 inches so they are very wearable. These chic pumps are the perfect shoe to take you from desk to drinks in style without breaking the bank!
