Smooth Like Velvet

- Zara Jacket (similar here), Bebe Tights, Aldo Booties, H&M Tank Dress and Scarf -

Since its popularity about three years ago, velvet jackets have been a must-have for my closet. I can't tell whether it is the smoothness of the fabric or the deep darkness of it that I admire, but regardless, it is a versatile garment that can be easily paired with boyfriend jeans and a loose-tee or in my case, tights and a tank dress. Plus, considering that the jacket/blazer is not tight to the skin, it allows me to layer cardigans and/or sweaters underneath for a more cozy look - I actually have a cardigan under it since it is still brisk cold in Chicago.
