10 Gorgeous Black Velvet Blazers You’ll Love!

Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 10 gorgeous black velvet blazers for women of all ages.

Velvet is chic, classy, and perfect for winter and the holiday season. You can’t go wrong with a velvet blazer, especially a beautiful and incredibly versatile black velvet blazer. You’ll wear it time and time again to the office, holiday parties, and winter weddings. 

Last year I stumbled on a gorgeous black velvet blazer and quickly fell in love. Unfortunately, it sold out immediately. I never forgot about that blazer and knew I had to purchase it when/if it was restocked. Thankfully, this beautiful velvet blazer is back in stock, and I ordered it right away! It arrived a week ago and I’m already obsessed.

With blazers as popular as ever, now is a great time to invest in one, two, or more in a variety of styles. This year I have fallen more in love with blazers in general. They have quickly become a staple in my wardrobe. I adore my plaid blazer, houndstooth, and my beautiful new velvet blazer. One thing is for sure, there are quite a few gorgeous black velvet blazers to choose from for the holiday party season and Christmas 2022! In fact, they’re also ideal for the 2023 winter wedding season as well.
Today, I’m excited to share 10 gorgeous black velvet blazers in various styles and price ranges. I hope you love them as much as I do!

I fell in love with this gorgeous collarless Eliza J Velvet Blazer last year, but it sold out immediately. I waited patiently for it to be restocked (last year), but sadly it was so popular that I was never able to find it in my size. Thankfully, a few weeks ago I started shopping my wish list and found it in stock. This blazer is even prettier in person!

I love the ruched three-quarter length sleeves, the tailored fit, and the fact that it’s unique with its collarless neckline. Eliza J is one of my favorite designers. Her clothing is at a great price point, and is very petite-friendly! 

This blazer fits true to size, the material is gorgeous and it has a hook and eye closure. I prefer to wear it open (unhooked) but it’s totally up to you as it looks great both ways. This is definitely one that can be dressed up or down. For starters, it’ll look great with a top and jeans a skirt and a blouse; wide-leg pants and a solid color or print camisole, and of course with a dress. In the photos above I styled my new collarless blazer with jeans and a sequin top, as well as black wide leg pants (and a sequin top).

This beautiful black velvet blazer is ideal for date night, the holiday party season, and for winter wedding guests as well. It’s sure to elevate any outfit. I highly recommend this beauty. It has phenomenal 4.4 out of 5-star reviews.
