I recently discovered a new brand of jeans and was already excited about how comfortable they were when I stumbled upon these velvet ones (I am wearing the Emerald) by the same company at one of my favorite shops on Martha’s Vineyard. These deep dark green are the perfect velvet trousers for fall and winter and are a great day to evening pair. I also love the navy version which is a very rich and dark blue. They are soft, stretchy and so easy to wear with this blouse, white button down and heels for work, or cozy creamy sweater (alternative here) for weekend wear.
I definitely favor dresses and skirts, and so prioritize comfort when it comes to any trousers. I look for a high or mid-rise waist, maximum flexibility, a slimming cut, and not too tight on the bottom near the ankle — these hit all the marks, and that’s not easy to do for me. It was such a comfortable combination with this billowy, feminine top which wore perfectly in the low 70’s weather.
I’m straddling the seasons here with my basket bag and espadrilles but could easily swap them out for loafers or knee-high boots and a blush or chocolatey leather handbag. As I build my “adult” wardrobe, I focus on great seasonal pieces which are versatile and timeless. I have been wearing velvet trousers my whole life, they will never go out of style.
