For starters, it’s worth mentioning the different kinds of velvet; and how blazers that are manufactured with those particular kinds of fabric/fabric combinations have a significant impact on your style. Though the name velvet has been applied to so many kinds of the variations of the fabric across the board, essentially 100% velvet would be ideal, but not necessarily a MUST.

Silk Velvet/Cotton Velvet Blend

Silk and cotton are two distinct materials, perhaps at different ends of a spectrum. However, when blended with velvet, the material makes for excellent, and flexible blazers. One one hand, silk is often perceived as a more high end, and luxury material, while cotton is seen as more casual per se. However when velvet material is a cotton/velvet blend, sleek, sophisticated, and even professional blazers may be, and in many cases, are the result.

How This Velvet Kind Affects Your Style

If one thing’s certain, it’s that your style is reflective of your personality. Selecting a velvet blend material that drapes in a way that’s too ‘flowy’ may make you a bit over the top. However, with the right proportions of velvet to cotton or velvet to silk, there’s plenty of room left for designers and craftsmen to create a brilliant item, one that’ll possibly have you looking nothing short of amazing.

 

Velveteen

Though not actually velvet, velveteen is quite popular. There’s very little drape, and it’s extremely wearable. Velveteen is usually a mixture of silk, and cotton. Velveteen fabric is easy to print on, making it a highly familiar material in the fashion industry. In recent years, craftsmanship has become so fine tuned that in many cases the look and feel of velveteen is often mistaken for real velvet. Perhaps the actual worth and value of the velveteen fabric itself has made it a luxury, a fabric that’s desirable, and effortlessly allows artists to showcase their skills on.

How Velveteen Affects Your Style

Velveteen is perfect for style conscious men and women who are unsure whether or not they want to deal with the nuances that come with dealing with a more ‘drapey’ kind of fabric (perhaps 80% silk, 20% velvet in that case). Wearing a velveteen fashion blazer, might not be velvet exactly, but if creativity is your thing, perhaps you might not be so surprised to find one of your favorite items might just be made exactly this kind of material.

 

Embossed Velvet

Embossed velvet is a style of velvet, usually rayon, that’s been carved out to show designs in a creative yet subtle way. Different combinations of velvet material can be made in to an embossed style and then further crafted to make blazers, trousers, etc.

How This Velvet Kind Affects Your Style

Embossing adds more detailing to your clothing, and  can make or break your look. Depending on the colors, and how subtle the embossed style is, you may be surprised by exactly how crafty, yet formal embossed velvet can be. Upscale designs often feature embossed velvet. If you’re after a style that’s high end, and signifies quality, and art, then the embossed velvet blazer may be our best friend.

 

Wearing The Velvet Blazer Casually

Causally speaking, velvet simply doesn’t fit the bill, usually. However, with the introduction of other popular apparel such as denim jeans, and brown footwear, velvet and casual are seen in a new light. The denim jeans and velvet blazer look simply works, and is one that’s hard to not have seen before. Casual velvet blazer trends are on the rise, as having a neat, yet laid back look is timeless, and certainly a kind of easy going style that’s always raved about.

Velvet Blazer.. Professionally

In a professional environment, the velvet blazer might be assumed to have too much sheen and shine to it. However, the truth is , it all lies in the selection of colorway, along with the fit of the blazer. Keeping it neutral by wearing black, dark brown, dark grey, navy blue and dark green hues of velvet blazers makes way for a look that’s comfortably professional and not to mention super sleek.

A professional look in a finely tailored velvet blazer is one that’ll keep you ready for business, and truly stylish at the same time. Not going the way of over the top hues and extravagant patterns, while around the office will keep you inline with the culture of the environment. Velvet blazers are a popular item in most professions, thanks to their luxury, and timeless nature!

  1. I am just so excited for spring fashion but like, I would love to wear a velvet blazer at the office before it’s too late. The flower print one would be so perfect!

    • Hi Daniel,
      The velvet blazer is perfect for the office. The best way to wear a floral velvet in a professional environment would be to tone down the look with super neutral colors such as khaki and navy blue. Keeping a simple look is office wear 101, however adding a few vibrant items such as the velvet blazer is certainly a smart addon given that you’re wise with the use of the colors in your outfit.
