A velvet blazer is an autumn fashion dazzler, though it might seem a bit tricky to work into your style at first glance. The question that often arises is, "Can I wear it with jeans?" The answer is, "Absolutely!" A velvet blazer does wonders to dress up a pair of jeans for a chic, classy look that's ready-to-wear for any date or night out on the town.
Pair skinny jeans in a dark wash, like indigo, with a velvet blazer to mix a classy look with sex appeal. For the blazer, pick a rich gem color like a ruby red, emerald green or deep amethyst purple. These colors look stunning in velvet, giving you a lush look that can't help turning heads.
Black is a fashion staple that comes in many shades, so you can create an all-black look without appearing like a solid wall of color. Pair a black velvet blazer with jeans, a blouse and sexy heeled sandals all in varying shades of black to create a striking, sophisticated look. Choose black jeans that are form-fitting with tapered legs. While they're similar to skinny jeans, tapered jeans usually cut off at the ankle and won't stack like skinny jeans. The look is cleaner and the hemline is perfect for showing off sexy sandals and a fresh pedicure.
Pair high-waisted jeans with a belted velvet blazer for a look that adds shape to your body while slimming you down. Sounds great already, right? Make it even better by wearing sexy pumps that match your belt for a chic, pulled-together style.
Create a casual and simple look by pairing flared jeans with a velvet blazer; wear a simple T-shirt to emphasize the low-key look. Tuck the shirt into your jeans loosely -- the key is not to look too polished. The jeans should almost reach the ground and totally cover your shoes. Choose a simple shoe style, like a wedge bootie.
