Hello City Luxers,

There aren’t many things I love about winter on the east coast, but one of the things I do love is the excuse to wear rich fabrics like velvet.  I picked up these velvet J Brand skinnies last winter and as soon as the temps drop I try to wear them as much as possible.  They are very comfortable and pair with a lot of different pieces.  Most of the time we only think of velvet as something to wear when dressing up for more formal occasions, but I like to wear these with everything from a dressy blouse to a basic tee and boots.  For a fun look, today I have paired them with a leopard blouse from Zara.   The neutral color palate gives a little more edge and sophistication to the look.  What are some of your favorite winter pieces?

xx,

Colleen
