Velvet Blazer: Now & Later

August is the perfect time to start thinking about what pieces will take you from warm to cool weather! Since velvet will be super chic this fall, I went looking for one you could buy now. This Twenty8Twelve blazer at Bluefly is on super sale for $224 (originally $419) and is selling out quick!

As for how you could wear it now:

You can dress up some casual denim shorts, a basic tee and sandals to create a chic warm weather look that's perfect for the weekend! A pretty wrap bracelet adds an ethnic note.

And when it starts getting cooler out:
Pair with a punchy red skirt, some tights and another fall trend of lace up booties once the temperature drops. A classic white button-down adds some sophistication to a youthful look.
