The party season is creeping in on us which means it is time to turn our attention to what we’ll be wearing for the celebrations this year.
Velvet is still very much on-trend and is definitely one of our winter fabrics of choice but how can you style this cool material for your festive occasions?
The Velvet Blazer
For your formal celebrations, why not mix up your classic suit with a velvet blazer? Adding new texture and interest to a classic two or three-piece suit, a velvet blazer is ultra versatile and can also be worn with jeans for a more casual look.
We have a selection of velvet blazers for men in a range of colours and styles, including full velvet blazers in black, burgundy and electric blue as well as extra stylish velvet blazers with contrasting lapels in both black and burgundy, meaning there’s plenty of options to create a unique look for you.
The Velvet Tie
If you just want to add a subtle hint of velvet to your look then a tie is the perfect way. Bow ties are ideal for those black tie occasions that crop up across Christmas, so why not mix up your usual look and opt for a velvet bow tie instead?
Available from Slater Menswear in burgundy, black and navy, our selection of velvet bow ties can work with any colour combination you put together and are perfect for completing your look in a seasonal and stylish way.
The Velvet T-Shirt
For a more casual approach, a velvet t-shirt is the perfect choice. Ideal for pairing with jeans and trainers for a laid-back look or if you want to go somewhere in between, pairing a velvet t-shirt with formal trousers can provide a perfect smart-casual option.
The Velvet Jacket
Warm, cosy and on-trend, a men’s velvet jacket is a super cool way to work this fabric, whatever the occasion.
Perfect for sporting with jeans or trousers, depending on the dress code, a velvet bomber style jacket has a generally casual look to it but paired with a shirt, tie and pair of formal trousers, the bomber jacket adds texture and something totally different.
The Velvet Trainers
Whether you opt for a full velvet trainer or a style with velvet details, trainers with this soft, matte fabric on are really in style and perfect for smartening up casual looks.
A lot of the designer trainer brands have adopted the style of adding velvet strips to leather trainers and it’s a look that is seriously popular at the moment!
So, if you’ve been eyeing up velvet clothing and wondering whether it is a look that will work for you, hopefully this blog post has confirmed that any and every man can wear velvet in his own way!
