Velvet the Look and Feel for the Holidays

November 28th, 2012 Comments off

The holiday season is fast approaching and the anticipation of gathering with friends and family would make one full of holiday cheer. But, before you start planning your schedule around the big family gatherings, office parties, and other celebrations that come with the season, you must first plan out what you are going to wear. If you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or if you just like getting into the holiday spirit you must have the perfect outfit and year after year Michael Sahi finds that his clients love to wear a velvet blazer paired with dress pants to celebrate the season. This elegant fabric would make an excellent substitution for your standard tuxedo especially for the more private gatherings that you will be attending.

Even though you have set your gift budget you must not forget to leave a little room for yourself.  Velvet, the go to fabric for this season, has always been associated with luxury. The deep pile, soft finish, and high shine fabric is perfect for special occasions that are ever so prominent this time of year. With its array of colors from jewel tones, deepest of dark navy blues and midnight blacks, velvet is a rich and luxurious material that looks great on men and women.

A velvet blazer can be paired with various types of pants; wool, tweed, and denim are standards that can swing your look from dressy to casual and back again. But when considering wearing it for a more formal event we are going to pair it with a solid pair of black wool flat front dress pant with a tuxedo stripe.  Have a one button, single breasted custom blazer designed from a tone on tone texture velvet. The collar should be a peak label but add a little flare by doing the back collar in a solid velvet material or even satin to give it a tuxedo.  To continue with a more elegant look, wear with a tone on tone black dress shirt and substitute the standard buttons with studs and cuffs links. With a black satin bow tie, you are now ready to turn head and hopefully get caught under the Mistletoe with someone special.

Now that you have the perfect holiday outfit mapped out for you give Michael’s Custom Clothes a call and schedule a consultation with the master tailors during their upcoming trip to your area.  For more details please visit us at and have very joyful holiday!
