I fell in love with this little velvet dress a while back.
But, I hesitated adding it to my wardrobe because it’s velvet, which to me means should be worn during the winter months (although that may be a silly notion), and it’s short sleeved, which means it could be a bit chilly. Therefore my mind was trying to wrap itself around how I would or could layer this item without taking away from it’s lovely, yet simple style.
I tried a variety of cardigans and sweaters and they just didn’t seem to work, they did just what I thought might happen, they didn’t compliment this item at all.
Then I thought of pairing it with a few of my lighter weight coats, the kind I can move easily in and actually add to an item.
And, seriously is there a better way to pair blue than with some sunshine (gold hues)?
