Remember my velvet jumpsuit (shop it here)? I bought it as an option for New Year’s Eve, but I’ve already worn it twice this holiday season. And, that was the plan, y’all. I’ve committed to buying as little as possible to get through the holiday party season. To do that, I’m relying on a few pieces that I know can be styled and restyled. This black velvet jumpsuit is one of those go-tos because its silhouette allows me to layer under and over, which offers serious styling possibilities.

Both times I’ve worn the jumpsuit so far, it’s been too cold to wear alone. So, I turned to layering to make the outfit weather appropriate and to make it look fresh. I wore it with a white blazer the first time (get details on that look here). Last weekend, I decided to layer under the jumpsuit to create an outfit for a fashion show.
For the fashion show, I layered an old lace blouse (see it worn before here) under the jumpsuit, and the combination was magical. Looking for a sheer blouse to layer under your go-to party dress or jumpsuit? This sheer mesh blouse and this fitted sheer blouse would be perfect.
Instead of wearing the self-tie belt I usually rock with this one piece, I wore my Gucci skinny belt to introduce a new texture to look.
And, since it is the holiday season, I wore my glitter pumps. If you can’t be a little extra during the holiday season then when can you? Am I right? Lol.
All in all, finding a solid piece that allows you to layer over and under makes styling through the holidays a breeze.

Love how just a few swaps really change this beautiful piece up. You look great in all variations and are totally set for the party circuit!
Thanks so much, Tara!!
Love, love, love it!!! I have worn a velvet jumpsuit to a winter wedding I attended last year and there is one coming up this month. I have been looking for examples of layering a lace blouse underneath for this upcoming wedding. It looks gorgeous and I hope I can rock it as well as you do.
Thanks, Amanda! You’re going to look fabulous at the wedding you’re attending. Enjoy!
