This top was LOVE.AT.FIRST.SIGHT! I cannot get enough of the feminine velvet bow details and lace in the back. If there’s one thing I appreciate, too it’s that I can wear a regular bra with this top despite the fun back detailing. It also comes in black (so good for the holidays), a beautiful tank version and even a long sleeve version!
I paired it with an oldie but goodie pair of velvet “jeans” that I’ve had in my closet for years just waiting for the velvet trend to come back up (seriously…J.Brand is offering the same exact pair again this year!) Low and behold, velvet is back in full force and I’m grateful for my mother’s voice in my head that says “everything comes back around.” Ain’t that the truth. (Now if only my NYC-sized closet could afford to hold on to all the past trends I’ve sported…)
Cooper & Ella makes such pretty pieces (I’ve worn them on the blog in the past) and I think their price point is exceptional given the quality of the clothes. Sometimes I mistake pieces of theirs for much pricier brands like Rag & Bone so I’m always pleasantly surprised by their thoughtful detailing and quality of fabrics. Their new collection is nothing short of “need one of everything” so I’ve rounded up my favorites below.
I particularly love this top which would look just as good with boyfriend jeans and pumps as it would with a pair of faux leather leggings. And this dress? Add tights (those control top ones are my absolute favorites), a pair of booties and a little jacket and you’re ready for a holiday night out on the town.
And PSA: If you’re interested in these Cooper & Ella pieces…Bloomingdale’s is running a promo of 20% off when you spend over $100 so shop right this way!
