Bordeaux Velvet Moment In Paris

bordeaux velvet pants

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!

    My dear Stella,
    as I wrote you in IG this look is also one with big WOW effect! I can understand the velvet obsession very good. Long time ago it was a forgotten material and as you showed as many times there are so many posibilities how to style it on x- different ways! your white coat is also a very nice piece. Great look as always my dear. strong hug, Martina

    I think you tease us, Stella. Because all the georgeouse things are out of stock. But anyhow, I’m in love with this look. The coat, the boots, the lovely sweater, and the velvet pants are just too adorable. The pink bow, too, is sooo cute.

    Your outfit and styling is absolutely amazing and so on trend! Even though I hate winter, you are making me wish for the weather to get colder in Australia so I can try combining velvet pants with boots.

    So glad I’ve found your blog (and amazing insta).

    Stella, getting these pants was a FABULOUS choice!! As soon as I saw them I immediately wondered why in the world I don’t take more of a risk with amazing pieces like this one. I think I’m afraid I won’t wear them out enough- but they looks so incredibly cozy on top of being stylish! I could see myself even lounging in them at home. ;p

    I’m definitely on the lookout for some more statement pieces now. You inspire me to take more wardrobe risks and step out of my comfort zone!

      Thank you so much Nataliya, being able to inspire one of my biggest sources of inspiration is a great accomplishment! To tell you the truth, I had started to think I may have done wrong with buying this pants, for the same reasons. I felt it would be too risky to wear this and difficult to create a successful look with them! Now I can’t get them off! 😀 So glad you like my look and thank you for your amazing comment! Have an amazing almost-Friday! x

      It’s not coincidence that we clicked years ago back in Polypore my dear! You are my fashion soul mate hihi! Hope you find these pants from Pinko, as I can;t find them anywhere online and share the link! I bet you would style them up to heaven with your impeccable taste! Have a wonderful start to the weekend! xoxo

  21. 10/02/2017 / 08:45

    The color of those pants is gorgeous! I wouldn’t know where to begin with styling them, but you hit the nail on the head with those pops of white. Such a cute way to tie the look together. Also, I would love a post updating us about your fabulous new life in Paris and what it takes to move there. Probably won’t make it there myself, but would love to live vicariously through you haha.
