Velvet shoes | see all the picks at

Velvet is a fabric that has a long history and is often associated with aristocracy. But, this season it’ll be one of the major fabrics on display and shoes will be a place you’ll see lots of it! Style these velvet shoes for either a casual or dressed look – you won’t go wrong! I’ve rounded up some choices for any occasion and the best part is they’re all under $65!

Star style: Kerry Washington

Star style: Kerry Washington (BET Awards 2014) |


Kerry Washington always seems to nail her looks whether it’s on Scandal or in real life. She attended the 2014 BET Awards show a few weeks ago and looked absolutely stunning. Can you believe she just had a baby in April?

Kerry wowed everyone on the red carpet with her strapless fit-and-flare Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring an on-trend floral print. The vivid and vibrant print was on full display as she had minimal accessories: a green and gold snap clutch from Amanda Pearl, simplistic gold Roseark rings, and bright white Jimmy Choo Anouk heels .

Inspired by Mrs. Washington? You can get this summer-ready look, too! Try this steal of a floral dress that’s perfect for attendance at a wedding or even date night. This green clutch will fit the look (and bill) perfectly. Accent the gold detailing of the clutch with a duo of rings and top off the outfit with neutral white pumps. Are you donning the floral print this season?
