Pleats & Velvet
CROP TOP: Secondhand
This week's look of the week is all about textures. I love the luscious velvet paired with the silky pleated pants in this look; the rich red undertones in the blue crop are accented by the shimmery crimson pants. Textures can add so much dimension to an outfit, especially if you are restricted by a work dress code. They can be another avenue to express your style in the place of bold colors or styles. I am obsessed with velvet and feel most myself when I am wearing one of the velvet pieces in my wardrobe.
I also love this look of the week because every items in it was purchased second hand. Second hand and vintage stores can offer a treasure trove of items that are impossible to find new. Plus, it is better for the environment! Be on the look out for our upcoming feature about some of our favorite online vintage shops.
