Alexa Chung Brings The Decadence With A Velvet Blazer

A velvet blazer isn’t the easiest outerwear to pull off without looking like you’re wearing your dad’s smoking jacket, but if anyone can do it, Alexa Chung can. 

The British presenter/model stepped out for dinner at London’s Quagliano restaurant rocking her signature androgynous style in skintight black jeans, a white shirt with frill collar and a fitted black velvet jacket.

Velvet has been having a major revival this season, and we’re now spotting it everywhere.

While model Georgia May-Jagger’s been rocking it in dress form, Kim Kardashian has also caught on to the comeback trend, recently working a Roberto Cavalli sleeveless velvet jacket out and about in Paris.

Alexa’s textured evening jacket immediately brings a bit of decadence and drama to her otherwise simple ensemble.

Wearing it with a vampy red jewel shade on the lips really ups the luxe factor, and safe to say we’re loving Alexa’s longer, glossier locks of late.

Throw on this Tailored Velvet Blazer from La Redoute (£59) over a little white dress and team with a crimson pillarbox pout for ultimate edgy evening glam.
