She wore Blue Velvet

Even I was inspired by Lana del Ray for H&M song Blue Velvet, today’s items are black and coming from Mango. But feel free to change it to dark blue, it’s one of the colors that suits velvet.

Christmas, New Years Eve and winter in general goes very well with velvet. This precious but “heavy” material is perfect for winter parties. The colors I would choose are: black, dark blue, burgundy or dark green.

If you don’t want a classic velvet look try to throw a fur gilet over the velvet dress or a sequin shirt to make the look even more precious.

If you want to play with velvet colors choose a velvet dark blue skirt and add some precious bordeaux shoes like these 2 models from Aldo. For up go for silk shirt. Anything you choose on top, be sure to be very delicate. Don’t just throw a black blouse cause “it’s working”..you will destroy the look if the black blouse it’s not the “correct” one.

The message you need to send is sophisticated, feminine, vintage, precious!

Go for vintage accessories. Velvet goes very good with dark silver rather than gold.
