WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO WEAR VEL­VET IN A TROPICAL COUNTRY?

DA MAN - Style - - Style FAQ -

The key to wear­ing vel­vet in a country like In­done­sia, where the weather can be un­pre­dictable but rarely falls far from “hot and hu­mid,” is to find the right oc­ca­sion. In short: • Vel­vet blaz­ers: Gen­er­ally re­served for more for­mal events, there­fore, they can look great with a traditional white dress shirt and bow tie. • Vel­vet jackets: Pair your jacket with a plain T-shirt for a dressed-down look. Mix it with dark trousers and a pair of chelsea boots. • Vel­vet trousers: If you’re wear­ing vel­vet trousers, go for a slim, straight-leg cut. • Vel­vet bow-tie: If you have any black tie events com­ing up in your sched­ule, these can truly shine. • Vel­vet shoes: Loafers or slip­pers in vel­vet go great with faded jeans. Fi­nally, look for vel­vet gar­ments that are wo­ven from silk and avoid vel­vet made from syn­thetic fab­rics such as polyester and ny­lon.
