On Trend: Velvet

Hi Everyone!

I am SO glad that velvet is on trend because I am crushing on so many fabulous J. Crew velvet pieces.  This gorgeous skirt (available here, too) is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces.  I love how flattering and versatile this skirt is.  It pairs SO well with many pieces including sweaters and graphic t-shirts. 

Here are a few IRL pictures of the velvet skirt with a denim jacket and graphic t-shirts:

These skirts fit TTS if not slightly roomy.  I am typically a size 14/16 on the bottom depending on the cut, the shape, and the style of the skirt.  I took these skirts in a size Large.  I tried the XL, but it was too roomy in the midsection.  The elastic waistband is SO comfortable and super flattering.  The waistband really helps to hide the lumps and the bumps if the midsection is a "problem" area.  It really sucks things in, LOL!  The skirts are fully lined.  I love that these gorgeous skirts look great with graphic t-shirts for a dressed down and casual look.   

I am also loving velvet blazers this season!  I love the idea of pairing a velvet blazer with a graphic t-shirt, too! 

And, here are few more of my "velvet" faves:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Loving the skirts! Have you tried the Easy pant in velvet? Any thoughts? I really think I'd like to try them out, especially since they are on sale! #winning
