Two Ways to Wear the J.Crew Factory Velvet Skinny Jean

From Phillip Lim to Diane von Furstenberg, several designers sent luxe-looking, velvet creations down the fall 2013 runways, signaling a revival of the velvet trend.

I’m excited, then, to partner with my blogger friend, Yasmin of Bangles and Bungalows, to share and style one of our favorite velvet finds—the navy J.Crew Factory Velvet Skinny Jean.  Move over basic denim and cords, these velvet skinnies are the must-have pants of the season.  These jeans are as plush as they are comfortable, boasting J.Crew Factory’s newest rise, the midrise waist.

In today’s post, we’re demonstrating how incredibly versatile these jeans are.  Yasmin is sporting a cozy chic styling of the velvet skinny jean while I jazz mine up for a holiday party.  Be sure to swing by Bangles and Bungalows for details on Yasmin’s chic look.

To get holiday-party ready, I paired my velvet skinny jeans with a sequin top.  Tis the season for sequins, right?  This top, by the way, was a thrifted French Connection dress that I refashioned.  A white tuxedo blazer stands out against the blues while adding a polished touch to the party look.

Sizing?  The pants fit true-to-size.  I’m wearing my usual size 28.

    I'm not a fan of the way velvet pants look on me, but if I could pull off your look, I would certainly change my mind! You look holiday fabulous! 🙂

      Thanks, KC! Yes, definitely give them a chance. I wouldn't have imagine sporting velvet pants either, but these are gorgeous. J.Crew Factory has some non-velvet options available in this new fit too.
