There’s something mysteriously intoxicating about blue velvet. The rich fabric has inspired songs, movies, shops – you name it! It feels like something from a bygone era (the ‘50s!). And since velvet is haute holiday wear, I set out to find the best blue velvet shoes. They’re lush, warm, and just what you need to stay cozy on cold nights. The dark hued jewel tone is found most stylishly on slippers, but put it on pumps and you’ve got true romance!
