Red Velvet Jacket and Boots + Style With a Smile Link Up

November 17, 2020
Red Velvet Jacket and Boots, Frontrow black coated skinny jeans

Every winter I love digging out my velvet jackets and boots, it’s such a sumptuous fabric and soft to the touch. I think I own about six velvet jackets – all preloved. I’ve found some incredible bargains in charity shops (the black one I wore to a wedding only cost a couple of pounds!). This is my latest acquisition, which was relatively expensive at £15. I bought it on eBay, and as it’s unbranded I took a bit of a gamble with quality and sizing. It’s a little bit thinner than I was expecting but is well-made. Some velvet jackets are quite structured, while others – like this one – are softer and have more drape. It’s snug across the bust so I’ve only done the bottom button up – I don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions! Losing a button would be a disaster because there isn’t a spare.

This red velvet jacket and boots are such a great colour match that I had to pair them together

This outfit all came together rather nicely thanks to rediscovering these boots in the loft. I’d been wondering what had happened to them for years – they must have been stored up there since we moved house over seven years ago! I was actually looking for the power cable to my sewing machine so that I could start an online course; unfortunately I didn’t find it, but I did find loads of shoes and boots! I was particularly delighted to find these ruby-hued beauties though. This red velvet jacket and boots are such a great colour match that I had to pair them together.

The black coated skinny jeans and pussy bow top create a sort of Victoriana meets rock chick vibe with the velvet jacket. I added a touch more velvet with my trusty old cat bag (which I also wore in yesterday’s post). The hat finishes off the look and gives it balance. It also kept the rain off my hair – typically it just started raining as we stepped outside. I have to plan my photo shoots according to the weather forecast because it’s such a mixed bag at the moment. I’m longing for those crisp, sunny winter days!

Do you love to wear velvet in winter too?
