Easy-Breezy Fall Velvet Pants Outfit
Now, let’s talk about these pants! I have to share my secret…I bought these pants for $5.00! I know amazing huh! They were from a store that was closing on super duper clearance! #score!
They’re like a fashion secret weapon – comfy, chic, and oh-so-versatile. I believe they will be your fall wardrobe essential for women over 50. Really, they are classic for any age!
Whether I’m out running errands, hopping on a plane for a getaway, or simply exploring the autumn beauty around me, these velvet wide leg pants keep me feeling like a million bucks. I love these comfy velvet bottoms, it is almost like I am wearing pajamas only so much more chic!
Classic White blouse
The long white button-up blouse is my secret weapon for an extra dose of elegance. What would we do without our white blouse? It goes with everything! I prefer a little bit oversized white blouse that is longer in the back.
I really like letting the white blouse peek out underneath a sweatshirt or sweater. It brings in some flair to my black velvet wide leg pants outfit. I have linked some beautiful white blouses below under shop.
Crewneck Leopard Sweatshirt
Layered over my white blouse is the light-colored crew neck leopard sweatshirt, injecting a playful and trendy element into the mix. A look that’s both relaxed and refined, perfect for those moments when you want to feel effortlessly put-together.
The result? You can be relaxed and ready for anything, no matter where the fall breeze takes you. I found a few options that look similar to my Old Navy sweatshirt. In fact I found the exact one listed on PoshMark (used clothing) that you will see below in my shop my outfit section.
Shoes and Accessories for Black Velvet Pant Outfit
I must have comfortable shoes when I am out and about especially while traveling to Italy so often, We do a lot of walking! These cute leather sneakers are perfect for fall outdoor activities. I have linked some similar looking ones below.
When we are traveling I always take along a leather crossbody bag. It holds all the things I need while keeping my hands free to shop of course haha. There are all kinds of zippered pockets inside and on the outside. I especially love the back zipper to keep important things in that no one can get into easily.
To finish off my outfit I am wearing gold hoop earrings. I love the warm color of gold with this autumn outfit.
