How to style velvet shoes
Velvet has shown up everywhere this Fall. Yess!! Finally Fall, I have been waiting for you! Blazers, pumps, boots, slip dresses. Anyway you could possibly imagine the fabric. Literally everywhere during NYFW. While I’m all for being in a head to toe velvet suit (there’s something so irresistible about that), I think another fun and even more relatable way to wear this trend is by keeping everything else simple and wearing some stand out velvet shoes.
You can really make a statement with some platform velvet pumps (or boots for that matter). Ever since I saw the Aquazzura Mira ‘s I was dying to save up my money and splurge, but then found these more affordable ones by Sam Edelman. The color and silhouette had me at hello! I styled my velvet pumps with some high waisted ripped jeans (can’t get enough of these! Also styled here ) and a white t-shirt. I topped the look off with a good statement vintage jacket (because every look goes better with a statement jacket in my opinion haha). For some reason I keep styling these shoes with other metallic pieces just like in my ‘NYFW Street Style post here‘. Velvet goes beautifully with anything denim, metallic and of course a good monochromatic outfit.
I had the chance to shoot this styled look with Champaigne Victoria in NYC. Her photos always tell a story and her editing on point. I really love how these photos came together! NYC is so inspiring! While I did come back exhausted and jet lagged (oh so damn jet lagged) I also strangely feel refreshed and inspired. That’s my favorite part about traveling, you always come back feeling inspired no matter where you go.
