If there’s one thing we at Sympli reach for the fall season as soon as the weather turns crisp and chilly––aside from our chunky knits and hot beverages, that is––it’s absolutely, hands-down, a stylish velvet set. “Really?” we’re sure you’re asking us? Yes, really, is our answer. We know that it’s not typically considered a fabric suited for daytime/casual wear, but velvet is a timeless, high-quality material that looks luxurious and feels effortlessly elegant. It’s also machine washable and easy to dress up or down. Not to mention, it’s gorgeous! It consistently tops women’s fashion lists every few seasons, so you never have to worry about it going out of style.
And yes, while you might think, “Ok, yes, velvet certainly makes for a high-impact evening look,” you’ll find us reaching for it during the day, too. Pair a velvet blazer over a T-shirt or turtleneck for a chic smart-casual look, or wide-leg velvet pants with a simple sweater for an elevated office outfit. We also love mixing it with other textures and playing around with levels of coziness, comfort and luxuriousness.
Now that we’ve convinced you of velvet’s seasonal worthiness in your wardrobe, here are a few perfect pieces that ensure your closet’s ready for the upcoming festive season. From a wide range of velvet tops (and toppers) that work perfectly with trousers, leggings and skirts, you can play around with pairings whether you’re dressing for the conference room or after-work cocktails.
Our Velvet Blazer is the perfect piece for formal and casual office looks that will go with just about anything in your wardrobe. You can create a complete velvet set with our Velvet Blazer by adding our Velvet Wide Leg Trouser and Velvet Boat Neck Tank. The ‘Sympli-city’ of this outfit with a selection of accessories will make you stand out no matter the occasion.
For an instant outfit, we recommend our Velvet Nu Cinch Top in both Black and Dragonfly, as it's the perfect long-sleeve that will create a polished look to your closet that is ready to be worn anywhere.
For a flattering shape we suggest our Velvet Wide Leg Trouser that has a supportive yoke waistband and removable self-tie belt. We suggest pairing it with our Velvet Nu Cinch Top for all-over luxe that’s exceedingly eye-catching. For something more directly dressy, try our Velvet Pleat Hem Skirt (we love it in Pomegranate), the lantern style will give you a relaxed, easy-to-move look for the office and a chic look for a holiday party. And, for an elevated off-duty outfit, look at our Velvet Yoke Legging with the Velvet Nu Trapeze Tunic and loafers or booties (it’s a must-have for the holidays).
Because velvet is one of the only materials to lend warmth and elegance to an outfit, the classic velvet dress is a go-to of the season. When it comes to party outfit picks, our Velvet V Neck Trapeze Dress offers sumptuousness and sophistication while its loose, A-line fit delivers comfort and femininity. The trapeze style makes it perfect for various body shapes.
