One of my favorite trends for the Fall/ Winter 2013 season is definitely the velvet style! It is a fundamental fabric for the cold months, keeps you on trend while feeling luxurious like a goth queen in a full velvet gown!
I love pairing fabrics and colors of the same family together to allude to a faux suit look. The bright contrast of the stripes help brighten up such a dark look. This schoolboy styled blazer combined with this indulgent fabric create an overall feeling of glamour!
The burgundy in the outfit are the understated accent pieces to support the ensemble. Navy and burgundy make a great pair, it's a color combination I've been spotting in a lot of retailers.
If this is too much velvet for you, then start off with a blazer, blazers are an easy way to spruce up any look. It's the perfect way to get your feet wet, if you're willing to take the velvet plunge!
