How Bloggers Style Velvet Shoes | #WRAPPERSDELIGHT

10th December 2016.
by Sarah.

Here’s your official memo: velvet shoes are here, and they’re ready to make an entrance. Step out in style with the fash pack’s fave fabric this season, and show you know a thing (or five) about how to slay the trend.

How to Wear Velvet Shoes

It’s the fabric of the season, and it’s totally rubbing us up the right way. Velvet shoes have been seen on the catwalks, in street style snaps and now they’re headed straight to your shoe-drobe. The idea of adding velvet shoes to your shoe-drobe got you feelin’ the fear? Don’t worry, this is your ultimate round up of sassy shoe ‘spo, ready to make sure you give your new velvet babies the air time they deserve.

Ready for this Berry

Whether you call it bordeaux, berry, oxblood, burgundy or, um, red, there’s no doubt that a deep wine red will always be the fall back favourite colour of the festive season. Safe to say, we’re obsessed and have to get our velvet boots out before even the tree makes an appearance. Samantha has let the bordeaux colour stand out in this perf’ cold weather outfit by wearing her velvet over the knee boots with plain black. As her outfit’s colour palette is pretty toned down, she can play with textures and mixes her velvet with a thick knit oversized jumper and matches with a velvet detail foldover bag.

Fur the First Time

Matchy matchy, done oh so right. Breeny kills it in a mix of rust, bordeaux and black. This sounds like a lot of colours, but as they’re all in the same family, they’re easily pulled together; just make sure they’re all warm toned, rather than a mix of warm and cold. We’re obsessed with the statement faux fur jacket too, updated for the new season with a collarless neckline and colourblock style. Of course, finish the look perfectly with lace up velvet boots, and you’ve got guaranteed slayin’ steeze.

The Bottom Line

Denim’s having a moment, and we’re totally okay with that. Mix our two current faves for a surefire flames look. Sara has gone for a raw edge hem jean in an acid wash, that adds a lil somethin’ Seventies to this totally of-the-moment ootd. The high rise velvet ankle boots fit slim on the leg, so the work perfectly with slightly wide-leg trouser styles: either a straight leg like Sara’s or feel the Seventies revival with a pair of kick flare jeans.

Go Green

Make a statement with a khaki pair of shoes. We’re so into this colour, it’s never been easier to go green. Style these khaki velvet shoes with black for a simple, go-to outfit that you can put on in no time at all and go from snooze to slayin’ in 10 mins. We love the fishnet tights layered beneath the distressed jeans too, an eezy way to make sure you’re keepin’ casj fash forward.

Texture Clash

All black errthing sound like music to your ears? Keep your style on the dark side by colourblocking up a storm and working your outfit from the velvet shoes up. Linh kills is by matching some lace up velvet ankle boots with skinny fit jeans and an oversized faux fir gilet, ’cause even baes keepin’ their chill can feel the cold now and then. If you’re lookin’ for a casj way to wear velvet shoes, then this is one you need to screenshot and save for later.

My Blue Velvet Shoes

Our Elsa sock boots made an entrance as soon as they dropped on site, and who could blame the hype? We’re totally on board. The chunky round heel makes them perfect for all day slay and the sock fit provides the perf’ amount of support to make sure they don’t slip anywhere. We’re taking things up a level by styling them in velvet. Tick every trend box by matching them with embroidered denim and a silver jacket: we’d double tap that outfit right into 2017.

Net Gains

Every time we post a photo of you guys slayin’ in fishnets on insta, the likes go off the scale. This Instagram-up trend is this season’s democratic fashion trend we can’t stop wearing, and we’ve got no intention of trying anything else any time soon. Slayin’ blogger Charlotte kills the game by laering fishnets under her velvet knee high boots, making sure the rest of her outfit’s casj in an oversized tee and denim jacket. Who said fishnets were only for Halloween?

Fringe Benefits

Boho bae has never looked so fire. This simple jeans and a tee look has been superstyled with a statement jacket and velvet boots, making it anything but basic. We’re feeling all kinds of outfit envy, but know that we can steal her style with pieces we’ve already got in our wardrobe, and focusing instead on the one statement jacket – and, of course, the velvet ankle boots.
