Are velvet bootlegs a good buy for winter parties or just old hat?

And what to wear with??

Velvet trousers not generally a good look in my opinion - can add bulk and also not terribly fashionable.

Velvet jacket better with jeans (dark smartishe ones).

MissisBoot Thu 27-Aug-09 20:52:13

no no no - just awful, sorry.

IwoulddoDrWho Thu 27-Aug-09 20:53:14

I thought you might say this.

Yes agree, definately not a good look. As traceybath says, velvet super-fitted jacket much better idea.

Sorry but velvet trousers sound very bad.

didn't mean to say it twice though blush

velvet trousers are a no no

LetThemEatCake Thu 27-Aug-09 21:17:22

absolutely not. And especially not with an old hat!! grin

sequinned leggings absolutely essential for this A/W, however.

This has reminded me I have a black velvet jacket. Is that a no no or can I wear it with blue jeans?

LetThemEatCake Thu 27-Aug-09 21:19:18

depends on colour and style of the jeans ... would be better with sequinned leggings...

Jewelsandgems Thu 27-Aug-09 21:21:17

And the lapels of the jacket.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Thu 27-Aug-09 21:21:50

No way do I have the figure for leggings.

Jeans are blue and bootcut.

LetThemEatCake Thu 27-Aug-09 21:35:29

oh, g'wan. G'wan. You know you can pull it off

I had a fantastic velvet jacket which I bought from a charity shop for a pittance when I was about 17. It was beautifully made and in fantastic condition (I doubt it had ever been worn by the previous owner). I loved it but somehow it got lost in our last house move (3.5yrs ago). Ho hum.

i bet they could look fab....some great sheer top ,heels...

LetThemEatCake Thu 27-Aug-09 21:48:06

need a link to a jacket in a similar style/ shape to your velvet one, please

Just seen the price of those leggings! It's not like you could wear them everyday or that they would last terribly well.

SausageRocket Thu 27-Aug-09 21:59:37

they look appalling on mere mortals.

NotanOtter Thu 27-Aug-09 22:02:57

i love those leggings
if i were under 40 i would
notice medium has sold out and imo only small or below would look good

Thanks for the sequins LTEC but possibly not for me. I accept the rebuke on the velvet trousers but cannot go out in those! Is it still just jeans then?

tulpe Fri 28-Aug-09 12:45:22

Dare I suggest straight leg velvet trousers? Such as these?

<<Tulpe runs for cover before fellow MNers jump on her case for daring to defend the velvet trousers and...poss worse.....proposing Boden ones!! >>

Sorry guys but Boden also have a velvet jacket here
