I have been waiting to wear this pair of bordeaux velvet pants since I bought them in Rome, last September! You see, as soon as we confirmed we were moving to Paris, I put aside some favorite clothes, so that I could wear first time here. That being said, I am not the kind of type who keeps the nicest things for ‘special’ occasions. I believe every day is special and should be treated like one. However, there are some clothes that worth a place like Paris, to shine in all their glory! Like these super soft, bordeaux velvet pants from Pinko.
And like everywhere, contrast is what makes an outfit to stand out, look sharp and anything else but boring. Apart from mixing colors, you can also mix textures, just as I did with my outfit here! When there are so many gorgeous textures to choose from, like brocade, velvet, wool, silk, lace, metallic, how can you choose? The answer is simple! You can wear them all!
I started styling these Bordeaux velvet pants with this super cute silk pink bow, added a wool blend sweater and coat, a metallic bag in gold tone, to enhance the metallic shine of the velvet, and finished with my favorite white Gucci boots. When these textures are carefully paired, they can create sublime combinations!
However, playing with texture contrasts can be very risky. But as in life, fortune favors the brave and I came up with an outfit I really like., and actually got a lot of compliments from people the day I wore it! How do you like this look?
Thank you for stopping by, and have a fabulous start to the week!
