Every winter I feel like velvet is back, but rarely does it seem to be wearable in a way that doesn’t make me have PTSD flashbacks to junior high. But this season the plushy fabric is available in basic blazers to metallic dresses and everything in between. There are so many choices we could easily fill our closets with the soft and luxurious material. We’re currently crushing on a few of these seasonal pieces, but this Alexander McQueen Satin twill-trimmed velvet tuxedo blazer is our favorite. A perfect mix of menswear with a feminine cut makes this blazer easy to dress up or down. Pair it with skinny pants and flats for a more trend-worthy androgynous look or wear it over delicate party dresses for the holidays. With satin twill lapels and accentuated shoulders, the double breasted jacket will give shape and structure to all your outfits even long after the days of gifts, turkey and caroling.
