These Velvet Pants Are SO Flattering
Inherently, velvet is NOT slimming. The heavy fabric and texture tends to add bulk.
However, these, gorgeous, black velvet pants by Veronica Beard (below) are an exception!
These pants are VERY slimming, and here’s why:
1) They are black. Black is slimming
2) The fabric is not heavy or very textured.
It’s a thin velvet with little to no contrast, unlike a ‘crushed’ velvet look
3) They are also higher rise, which makes your legs look longer
I’m wearing size 26. I would say these run a little small, so consider sizing up.
These black mules are from Target, and only $34!
They have a narrow fit, so you might want to size up… 1/2 size.

By the way, this is one of my favorite spots in the city to shoot, the library and Bryant Park. It’s SO gorgeous with a lot of variety.
You can shoot against the all white library or add some greenery like the pictures above in Bryant Park.
When I lived in New York, I rarely made my way to Bryant Park. I wish I had spent more time there!
If you don’t already know, my family visited the city to watch my husband run the marathon. You can read more about that here.
