For rich, mysterious fabrics, you can’t do much better than the liquid loveliness of velvet. This 1970’s women’s blazer-style jacket is crafted in a deep chocolatey brown crushed velvet. Two recessed-center brown buttons close the jacket in the front, and there is slight gathering at the shoulder. While this piece is clearly styled in the seventies look, it still manages to look timeless. Very fluid and supple fabric, just perfect for cold-weather wardrobes!

It seems that velvet blazers, constructed from either sturdy and soft cotton velvet or the creme de la creme buttery silk version, make a runway appearance at least once a season. The blazer style, of course, never leaves the style party and velvet, while extremely tricky to work with, looks sleek and modern when made into dinner jackets and paired with dressy jeans or slacks and any variety of tops selection. Silk velvet worn over a ratty vintage tee shirt equals a little bit of handsome heaven. The color palette for this is best left to rich red wine burgundys, navy blues, eggplant purples, jet black and any variety of gray. Simple single or dapper double breasted, modest lapels and patch or classy welted pockets seem to polish off the cut beautifully.
