Who says blue velvet is only for the winter season? I never follow any fashion rules. I wear white after Labor Day, pair brown with black, and I most certainly don’t shy away from rocking a fab velvet dress during a sunny spring day. The trick is to dress the velvet down with casual pieces. I adore this stunning blue velvet mini from Tobi, which shows off just the right amount of skin. To tone down the fabulous velvet vibes I paired it with a chic moto jacket (old from Zara), and a pair of simple black pumps. The leather jacket gives my look a more casual energy, perfect to wear for happy hour drinks with friends, or dining al fresco for a springtime lunch.
