Celebrity Outfit Idea to Steal: Whitney Port's Crushed Velvet Trousers

Whitney Port stepped out the other night for the unveiling of Tacori's "City Lights" jewelry collection in mauve crushed velvet pants, lizard-print Alexander Wang pumps, and a sheer taupe blouse.

While the thought of crushed velvet may make you feel a little nauseous, this look works! Port's pretty subdued colors and minimal styling keep the boldness of the crushed velvet at bay.

Ready to ditch your over-worn trousers? Recreate this look, and try a luxurious velvet pair instead. Here's how:

Velvet Pants:

You might not be ready to dive head-first for crushed velvet, but you can definitely pull off a toned-down regular velvet pair. We really love the mauve shade of Port's pants—it's a new neutral that will make any look feel more feminine. We found two pairs that we like: Rachel Zoe's "Ian" cigarette pants ($275) and Malipari's casual pants ($138).

Taupe Blouse:

Since the velvet pant will definitely grab everyone's attention, leave your top neutral and basic. For a regular sheer tan blouse, try this Forever 21 top ($22.80). And if you want a little extra-special touch, try a lace shirt like this Max & Mia blouse ($68) for an added dab of texture—especially if you choose velvet pants that aren't crushed.

Pointy-Toe Printed Shoes:

To get the look of Port's lizard-print Alexander Wang pumps, you'll need a pointy-toe, printed shoe with an ankle strap. We like this leopard-print Madewell shoe ($158) because not only is it in style for fall, it will serve as a great staple all season long.

Don't forget a black clutch, and you're ready to rock velvet a la Whitney Port.
