"Come the holidays, a velvet suit can be a surprise alternative in a season well stocked with shiny, sparkly party dresses. The dandified look, which derives its cool from the ’70s — think Betty Catroux in the Saint Laurent days — gains extra punch from jewel colors and touches of embroidery. Tailored with emphatic shoulders and nipped waists, the suits resurrect that decadent era with their rock ’n’ rock spirit intact. Yet the tinge of formality is hard to rival. Keep the look feminine with lacy bits underneath, or go for an androgynous cool with a graphic tee and slip-on sneakers." NEW YORK TIMES
