If there’s one thing I love about the winter, it’s the lovely fabrics you get to wear during these cold winter days. My favorite items of this season are the ones that are made from the luxurious fabric velvet. A lot of designers use velvet in beautiful and rich colors, from jackets to pants and dresses. The long semi-sheer dress I’m wearing has a devoré inspired detailing. The added stretch down the waist and wrists adds an elegant touch to this piece. I combined this feminine dress with a sturdy black leather jacket. I love to combine contrasting pieces and add an unexpected element to an outfit. A mash-up of feminine and edgy items creates a look that’s neither too soft or too tough. I wear dark and moody florals against a dark color palette for a winter-ready look!
