The time for holiday parties and family gatherings is upon us, and what better way to own the room than with a red velvet blazer. The red velvet blazer is one of my favorites for this time of year because it has a look that says holidays. This week I am in downtown Newport News enjoying all things Christmas. Once again I am working with the extremely talented Charles Hundley of Raw Image Photography.
My specific look is more formal and says holiday party. The blazer can be dressed down with chinos or jeans. Also it can be worn with slacks and with or without a tie. My suggestion is where what feels comfortable. My one piece of advice would be not to try and overdo the red. The blazer speaks for itself and doesn't need to many accessories.
The items I am wearing this week are a red velvet blazer from Adolfo, the tuxedo pants and tuxedo shirt are from JoS. A. Bank, the bowtie is Tommy Hilfiger, the shoes are Kenneth Cole and the cuff links and lapel pin are from Macy's.
