How to Wear Velvet Blazer for Women: Best Outfit Ideas

Wearing a blazer can often make you look smarter and more professional. Another side benefit is that it can make you look leaner. So, if you can dress business casual in your workplace, wear a blazer to work is almost always a good idea, regardless of what you are wearing with it. Having said that, things can get a little boring if you repeat the same thing five times a week. Just like work, if you find yourself repeat the same thing too many times and feel bored, you put a little twist here and there to make stuff more fun. For the case of the blazer, you can do that by switching colors or trying different fabrics. In this blog post, I am going to explore the latter idea. To be more specific, I am going to talk about how to wear the velvet blazer. Let’s check out some of the best outfit ideas I have put together for you now.

Blue Velvet Blazer & Pants

One of the simplest way to style a velvet blazer is to actually buy a velvet suit, so you don’t have to think about what to wear for the bottom. As an example, wear a blue velvet suit with a white button up shirt and black oxford shoes.

Burgundy Velvet Blazer with Black Sweater & Jeans


For a mature and feminine look, you may want to consider this beautiful outfit. For the top, wear a black sweater with a burgundy velvet blazer. Pair them with black skinny jeans and pointed toe leather ankle boots. A black knit scarf will help glue together all the pieces perfectly.

Black Velvet Blazer with All Black Outfit

One interesting about wearing a black velvet blazer is that it can add an extra dimension to an all-black outfit, instead of just making the outfit a muddy piece of black clothes. As an example, wear the black velvet blazer with a black sweater, black skinny jeans and leather ankle boots. To add just a little bit of color, you can wear a light grey linen scarf without ruining the overall black and deep theme.

Black Blazer with White Turtleneck Form Fitting Top & Jeans

As a smart causal outfit, you can wear a black velvet blazer with a white turtleneck form-fitting top. Complete the outfit with ripped skinny jeans and black ballet heels.

Wear with White Tee & Black Skinny Jeans

If you are a fan of blazers, you should already know that when you wear a blazer with a street outfit of t shirt and jeans, you can often have that silicon valley smart-without-trying look. Of course, under the surface, everyone actually tries so hard to be able to achieve anything. Anyway, this outfit consists of a white t shirt, black skinny jeans and white sneakers. Up to this point, the outfit looks okay but nothing interesting. Wearing a black velvet blazer can immediately upgrade it to a whole new level.

Two-piece Set of Red Velvet Blazer & Skirt

Here is another outfit idea that involves a two-piece velvet set, but this time it is a skirt instead of the pants. You can simply wear the red blazer and skirt with a black blouse. For the shoes, I would suggest not to wear the red shoes or the black shoes. That would have looked too tidy and awkwardly well balanced. I would recommend instead a pair of nude heels.

Burgundy Blazer with Grey Print Tee & Skinny Jeans

As shown in an earlier idea, wear a blazer with a casual street outfit almost always works. In this case, the burgundy blazer looks pretty nice when put together with a funky grey print tee, skinny jeans and white sneakers.

Long Purple Velvet Blazer with Denim Boyfriend Shirt

In the previous ideas, most of the blazers I have covered are the typical short and slim fit ones that can make you look smart and lean. If you are already skinny, though, you can try this outfit idea. I am not saying the other outfits are not suitable to you. I am just saying that this particular idea won’t help you look slimmer. Anyway, back to this outfit, simply wear a denim boyfriend shirt with an oversized purple velvet blazer for the top. Pair these pieces with black leather leggings and white sneakers.

Wear with Black Tank Top & Ripped Jeans
