Velvet, Mesh and Bell Sleeves

Velvet, Mesh and Bell Sleeves

DSC01482(1)

I love velvet. LOVE. IT. Even in Miami’s usually toasty weather, I find myself wearing the fabric all yearlong. Luckily, winter is the perfect time to use and abuse your velvet pieces.

This mesh and velvet panel top from Tobi is the perfect winter addition to your closet this season. The crop top pairs perfectly with high-waisted jeans, skater skirts and skorts, and the long sleeves and high neck balance out the top’s shape. The long sleeves also feature a look that came back in style sometime last year and has refused to go out of style: the bell sleeve, a romantic and comfortable style that adds an instant touch of class to any look.

I paired my bell sleeve crop top with a velvet (of course) skater skirt, also from Tobi. I finished the look with a pair of black suede booties from Steve Madden and a pair of simple, silver hoops. After adding a lightweight Giani Bernini crossbody purse for my phone, keys and lip gloss, I was ready for a stroll around Coral Gables.
