Velvet for Any Ages: The Casual Version

Quote of the day: “It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.” Brother David Steindt-Rast

If you haven’t noticed by now, I always love a good quote. I feel like they are a bundle of smarts in a small package—kinda like the 3 of us, ha ha!!

As the opposite of our last post, where we styled our velvet pieces for a dressy occasion; this time I wanted to see how they would work for a casual day.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the texture of a material in a photo, so if you can’t tell, the velvet item is my scarf, Nancy’s sleeveless top, and mom’s blazer.

Don’t forget to visit Gail from Is This Mutton to see her interpretation of the theme!! And check out below too—I just saw Amy style a velvet blazer, so I had to add it to this post to show that I’m not the only one who is thinking about velvet right now!

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Confession time: I had to purchase my velvet in order to participate in our series! I know I used to have quite a few velvet blazers, however, since retiring and losing some weight, they were all too big and so got purged when we moved!

I found this lovely scarf at The Paper Chandelier consignment shop in downtown, Littleton. This trick of wearing it under a belt is one of my favorites since it stays in place so much better this way.

My love of accessories is probably well known by now, so I added in a choker necklace & my butterfly earrings. You could say that I’ve overloaded on the doodads, but my rationale was that they were rather small and dainty and so didn’t detract from the outfit as much!

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

As for the rest of the outfit. The shirt is “borrowed” from my husband’s side of the closet. I just didn’t have any shirts that blended in as well. The vest was an impulse buy at Target recently. I had bought an utility jacket months ago and removed the sleeves to make this vest. The problem was I was never in love with the shape of it that much, so when I saw the Target vest, I just had to have it!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Nancy’s velvet top is sleeveless, and usually get layered under other items like it did in the first post! Therefore I wanted to try to showcase it to be front and center this time.

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

I had originally thought to style it over this dress (and a long sleeve shirt) for the dressy category, but since we changed our minds for that outfit, I had to punt! I know Nancy would never wear these boots with a dress normally, but I wanted to experiment since they were the same color!

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

This scarf was hand knit for Nancy by a friend of hers. I added it to the outfit to see if it gave the look a more whimsical air!

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

These boots were Nancy’s objective when she went on her shoe shopping expedition just recently. I just want it known, that I was not with her, so it’s not my fault that she got 5 new pairs of shoes!!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: For my mom’s casual outfit with her velvet blazer, I decided it would be a perfect time to show off her Jodie’s Touch of Style t-shirt. With my sincere thanks to Anne of Spygirl who sketched the 3 of us in caricature and place them on a t-shirt. Of course I had to buy a shirt for all 3 of us, which you’ll see later this year!

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

I have to admit, I always love a blazer as a topper. I think part of it is because of watching What Not to Wear for so many years. Stacy & Clinton were always touting the advantages of this item. And even though we are retired, I think a blazer can still be worn for many occasions! Like with a graphic t-shirt as shown, right?

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

The graphic t-shirt should take most of the glory in this outfit, but I still wanted to add in a necklace and earrings. The choker necklaces may be thought of as a “young” girl’s accessory, but here’s to being a rebel!!

Style & Fashion for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

I chose the print jeans for mom’s outfit because I thought that her denim ones would make the outfit too dark. But they might have been a safer bet, if you’re one that likes a little less pattern!

Amy from Stylin’ Granny Mama: Amy has a fabulous velvet blazer that she paired with her skinny pants and OTK boots!! Amy’s also over 50 and is actually from my hometown of Toledo, Ohio!! She posts about Faith, Fashion & Fluff—what a great combination!!

I am always so appreciative of your support and comments. Thanks so much!

Since velvet is quite heavy for the spring, I found some lighter scarves that would be perfect now and later:

  • Each of you look so nice in your casually styled velvet. I really am taken with your mom’s look. The tee shirt is fabulous and looks so nice with the velvet blazer.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jennie!!
      I am a sucker for a blazer over anything—that’s probably why I like this so much!!

  • Mummy in a TuTu

    Oooo I love a good velvet blazer and looovvveeeddd Nancy’s outfit as she just looked so cool!
    Thanks for linking to #ablogginggoodtime

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for giving Nancy a boost—she always loves to hear when people like her look!!

  • That rich brown of your scarf may not be my color, but I love it! I’d probably be rubbing my cheeks against it all day. Ooops is that TMI? haha!

    Thanks for partying with us on #FridayFrivolity

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s hilarious, Audrey!! Thanks for the laugh!!

  • Mother Daughter

    I use to wear velvet all of the time but have gotten away from it for some reason. I do have a velvet jacket and might need to get it out next fall.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s such a pretty material, Victoria!! It might go nicely over some of your LuLaRoe dresses??
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  • motherofteenagers

    I love velvet, it is so luxurious and worn as a scarf or throw can really dress up an outfit. I love your blog concept it is fab. Lovely to have found you. #ablogginggoodtime

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jo! I’m glad you enjoyed this!!

  • I’m putting a velvet blazer on my shopping list. Such a versatile item for day or night. I’m loving that T shirt that Charlottes wearing too x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      A velvet blazer is really is such a fabulous piece, Laurie! I used to wear a couple that I had to work—even when velvet wasn’t probably “in”—but they look so nice and wintery–no matter what!

  • Linda Hobden

    Am loving Nancy’s boots – what a trendy lady! 😊👍

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t they fabulous, Linda?
      Thanks so much for stopping by and happy weekend!!

  • Interesting combinations. Love Nancy’s boots. I am a shoe person and that is the one clothing item I enjoy shopping for and buying. Not keen on Mom’s pants but love her T-shirt. Your outfit is cute and unique with the belted scarf. I haven’t even thought about velvet in years and you have made it look fun and appealing!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I find it quite fun to try new combinations with our clothing—now that I’m retired!! I think it’s a way to be creative and try to show that clothing & style can be fun. Luckily the rules we grew up with have gone by the wayside!! I know my mom will comment more than once that a certain aspect could never have been done when she was younger (like wearing rhinestones before 6 pm!!—gosh forbid—ha ha)
      Thanks for your input, Molly!!

  • I would never have thought of the combination ‘mom’ has…goes to show you that there’s always a new way of looking at fashion!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s true that style can be so individual, Carol! Of course, this post got the most negative responses for the voters! So maybe it’s not the best combo for us??

  • Great looks – I particularly like yours. And your and Nancy’s boots.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks!! That’s so nice to hear!!

  • Dawn Lucy

    Oh I love velvet … how fun to make it more casual. Love these looks! Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday. It feels good to catch up with everyone!

  • sue

    Always love the accessories and love the t-shirt! Maybe I should get one for Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond! I love boots but as it is summer at the moment mine are still packed away.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I was just commenting to another blogger, that I think we all need our own t-shirts with our blog name on them! Isn’t that good marketing?

  • Your t shirt is adorable!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think we all need a t-shirt with our blog name/logo on it, Anna!! Marketing, right?

  • Such a cute title! Love how you belted your velvet scarf and I adore your mom’s velvet blazer. I loved seeing how you all styled this trend!

      Thanks Kathrine!
      Most readers voted against these looks, so but so far today’s post is more agreeable!! You win some, you lose some!!
      Happy Friday!

  • I love the feel of velvet, anything soft really! #ablogginggoodtime

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kayleigh! The feel of the material can make such a difference!!

  • Another wonderful post about velvet–this time casual! I love how you’re wearing your belt over your scarf! Your mom’s T-shirt is adorable, a work of art! I’m looking forward to seeing the three of you in your T-shirts!

    ❤️ carmen

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Carmen!!
      We wore them when we went to Vegas over Christmas this year and we took some photos for the blog. The silly thing, is the blog theme is about scarves, so you can’t always see the t-shirts that well. Oh well….I’ll have us each wear them another time too!!

      I really meant it about that photo—it looks like one of those I see in the galleries!!

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    I love sayings too collected them in a book in my teens, one of my favorite reasons for loving my mother’s Reader’s Digest magazine. To be honest I think the open chain link belt looks a little busy with the scarf tucked into it. Both are great pieces. I have to say I love Nancy’s boots with the dress and the use of her shirt like a vest is clever. Omg, the t-shirt is adorable. I like Mom’s pants but think a black shoe to ground the blazer might help.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ahhh…those are fabulous suggestions Tracey. I’ll have to try the scarf with a plain black belt that I have instead! And the darker shoes for mom could be the key. Sometimes I look at an outfit and think it’s not exactly right—-but I don’t know how to fix it! That’s why I love getting other’s opinions. We all see things so differently!!
      Thanks so much for your help—I really appreciate it!!

  • I really need to invest in some velvet! You ladies all look so lovely. And I love that you raided your husband’s side of the closet for this post. It works really well! Haha, and it’s in writing now that you can’t be blamed for Nancy’s 5 new pairs of shoes. Haha. Too funny! Those are super cute boots! Hope you all have a great weekend!

  • Missy May

    There’s something about velvet that’s so vintage and so classic about it. I think at least one should owe something velvet in their closet. Y’all ladies have showcased some great ensemble here. That scarf is really lovely!
    Great outfits, beautiful ladies. 🙂

  • Kathy Marris

    Velvet is very much on trend here in Australia for our upcoming winter. We are always a season behind the countries in the Northern Hemisphere. I do love velvet – it so soft and warm to wear. Your velvet scarf is gorgeous. #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kathy!!
      I think it could be an advantage to be a season behind the trends because then you have so much time to get ready for it…ha ha. Although it’s hard to embrace OTK boots when it’s sweltering outside, I bet!!
      Thanks so much for stopping by and happy weekend!!

  • I like the idea of velvet (and it looks great on you ladies), but when it comes down to it, I just find it’s too hard to keep “clean”. It seems to attract lint. Given I’m not much of a domestic goddess (eg I rarely buy clothes that need ironing) I’ve given velvet the flick.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s so funny you say that Leanne—because I never even thought about that aspect of it. Probably because I’m constantly lint rolling myself no matter what I wear since we have 2 kitties!!
      Thanks for stopping by—it’s always so fun to link up with you guys!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    I would love to have a velvet blazer, so of course I love your moms! The sleeveless velvet piece is unique, yet would be really fun to style over different tops! I also love your scarf and how you belted it! You ladies always give me so much inspiration!

      Carrie—I really appreciate the kind words!!
      I know most voters weren’t in love with these outfits, but sometimes it’s good to have tried it even if it doesn’t work perfectly 🙂

  • I love nancy’s top styled as a vest, and belting a scarf is also a clever kind of way to create a vest look.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lydia! Nancy will be happy to hear that!!

  • I love the color of Nancy’s sleeveless velvet top. You all styled your velvet so well casually. Proof a dressier material can be toned down depending on styling.

  • Jean Ann

    Great job styling these outfits. Will we be able to get t-shirts like your mom’s? I want one!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Really? That’s so cute, Jean Ann!
      Here’s the link to the shirts: http://bit.ly/2m0eC3f
      We each got the fitted tee and let me warn you, they run a little small. I got mom & Nancy a large and you can see it’s quite fitted. I think they look great (but they are used to more room in their tees). The unisex one could be fitted more generously???

  • I totally agree about the blazer as topper. I think the same way!! Love the velvet, ladies.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Elle!!

  • Judy Gramith

    I’m no sure that velvet slides into a really casual look quite as easily as most fabrics. For some reason these looks aren’t giving me the pop of previous posts

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I totally get that, Jude!
      It’s kinda like sequins—-it seems more dressy than casual!!
      I could have probably put together better pairings too—these definitely didn’t go over as well as previous posts!! But nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
      🙂

  • If I am going to incorporate velvet into a casual look, I prefer going all the way (like your look) – rather than kinda’ sorta’ with dresses or skirts – different strokes, etc.

    Re: blazers – if I worked in an outside office (or got out more) I’d probably be a raving blazer fan – so easy to pop over practically anything to dress it up a bit. Since I don’t, I tend to avoid them – in the hot or cold months especially. Even when it’s cold inside, sitting in front of my computer in a blazer feels silly – and they are bulky under a coat, essential these days with unpredictable Cincinnati weather at this time of year. (btw- my Dad was born in Toledo!)

    Still, I kept quite a few from my “corporate drag” days in NYC – waay too nice to get rid of, even though they are rarely worn anymore.

    Haven’t finished comment duty – trying to get to everybody who left posts on the Senior Salon as well as those left for me by those who read my blog, so email languishes, Jodi. Sorry. It’s on the list, but I am still fighting a cold, so the going is slow – and I have been sleeping TONS so I’m waaaaay behind. Call me if quick turnaround is important.

      No hurry on the email, Madelyn—I just wanted you to know it was out there!! 🙂
      I still have a ton of blazers from my working days too! And you’d laugh if you saw me working at my computer—because I still wear them! I’m always thinking that there’s the possibility that I’ll have to run out to the store real quick, or I want to look nice when the deliveries come to the door!! I know we are lucky here in Denver with the weather (most of the time) because I don’t always need a coat over top. Especially if I’m just going from car to place & then place to car!!
      Small world about your dad being from Toledo!! We used to laugh that everyone is from there, but nobody stays…ha ha!!

  • So, too much to say about this post but here goes: Love the t-shirt! So excellent to represent your blog! Love that you took the sleeves off of your vest — so smart! I love Nancy’s top and boots. I hope we see them again in the future. Your velvet purchase is beautiful, so even if it’s all by itself, I hope we will see it again.

  • Karen

    First of all, I LOVE your look in this post! That vest and that scarf and those boots…just perfect! (I realized after I thought I have no velvet that I do have a scarf so have put it back in rotation till spring!) Nancy’s boots…oh my! Love those! I do think a velvet blazer should probably be a wardrobe staple and am on the hunt for one like your mom’s – hoping to haunt some sales for that! So you are from Toledo! I’m in the Akron area (suburb of Akron) so close to your home town!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a small world, Karen!! I’ve never been to Akron, but I’ve heard the name many times!!
      You should definitely wear your velvet scarf before the temperatures heat up too much!! It’s so on trend right now!
      And I bet you can find a velvet blazer –either with all of the sales coming up or even at a thrift store!! I feel like they are really timeless!!
      Thanks for such a positive comment!!

  • Beautiful looks! I need to try to wear my scarf under a belt like this one day. I love the color schemes and how fun is your moms tee shirt!
    have a great day!

      Hi Lisa!!
      You should definitely pull out your velvet blazer!! It’s definitely on trend (plus warm!!)
      Thanks for stopping by!

    I love how a blazer can dress up an outfit! Your mom’s blazer is just gorgeous! Love how you belted your scarf and switched up the layering with Nancy’s velvet top! Great casual outfits!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie! Thanks so much for including me in this fabulous post. I love these outfits. Your utility vest is so cute and I love how you belted the scarf over the top. The leggings and lace up boots give the outfit a perfect casual vibe. I adore Nancy’s outfit. I love purple first of all so the vest and the scarf drew me in immediately. And frankly I love the boots with this outfit. Again, it seems the perfect way to give it that casual twist. Your mom always looks stylish. And I think chokers are great for all ages. You and your mom look fantastic with yours and it gives you both that youthful flair. That t-shirt is so cute. You gals should make them available to your subscribers for a fee. Ha, ha. Thanks again for the shout out. I really appreciate it. – Amy
