When it comes to holiday dressing, velvet blazers are always in style. There’s something so festive about this plush fabric, and there are several ways to wear one. Whether you’re attending a holiday party or just want Friday night dinner for feel a bit more special, a velvet blazer undoubtedly adds a special touch. In this post you’ll find 5 chic velvet blazer outfit ideas that will elevate your party season style this year.
I’ve also curated a roundup of my favorite velvet blazers to help you find the perfect statement piece for your next holiday gathering.
This year’s velvet blazer pick is this gorgeous green velvet blazer from Boden. The silhouette feels modern; it’s not too fitted but also not too oversized. It’s available in a variety of colors and runs TTS. Of course, if you want to keep it classic, you can’t go wrong with a black velvet blazer.

Velvet Blazer with Black Pants
For a modest look, try a velvet blazer and trousers with a turtleneck.
I love the almost monochromatic feel to this. Everything in my outfit is black except for the deep green blazer. For your base layer, don black wide leg trousers with a tucked in black turtleneck. I added a black belt with gold hardware to break things up, while still blending in with the rest of the black pieces.
This velvet blazer and trousers outfit is a great option for the office or a work holiday party.
With Jeans: How to Wear a Velvet Blazer Casually
A velvet blazer with jeans is my favorite way to wear a velvet blazer casually.
For this outfit, I wanted my jeans to still feel a little polished, so I have a sequin tank and black suede booties. But, if you want to keep things even more casual, you can easily swap in a t-shirt instead.
This is a great look for a holiday luncheon or if you want to feel festive for a daytime event. After the holidays are over, a velvet blazer with jeans is a also great way to get some extra mileage out of your topper post party season.
With a Plaid Skirt
For a preppy vibe, wear your velvet blazer with a plaid skirt.
I opted for a plaid skirt that contains green to help amplify the beautiful color of this velvet blazer.
Finish your outfit by adding some socks and chunky loafers. Blair Waldorf approved.

Velvet Blazer and A Dress
A velvet blazer with a slip dress is so feminine and beautiful. The contrast between the cozy velvet and slinky satin just really works!
This is a great velvet blazer outfit if you want something a little more unique than wearing your blazer with pants or jeans.
For added holiday flair, finish your look with some metallic heels.

For those a little more adventurous in the velvet department, go head to toe with a velvet blazer and pants set.
You can wear the same color blazer and pants, but don’t feel like you must commit to a full matching set. Here, I opted for my green velvet blazer and black pants (also velvet).
