I feel as though we just blinked and the holiday season is upon us. So, considering the fact that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks from now, and the rest of the holiday season seems to unfold at lightning speed beyond that, it’s time to dust off our winter flats and officially retire those more fitted to the summer season.
I was given a pair of black velvet ballet flats when I was about four years old, and it has turned into a bit of an obsession since then. I think it’s terribly sad that velvet is strictly seasonal, so I try to make the most out of it while I can. I love the luxuriousness of the velvet, but hey, these babies are also super comfortable and party-ready!
You definitely need to treat your velvet flats with more care than you do others, but they are well worth the effort. Personally, we love their more dressed-up feeling, whether it’s elevating our denim look or giving us a flat option for holiday party number six-thousand-one of the season.
With velvet flats, stick to black, navy, and other deep hues. Some smoking slippers look awesome in a bright color, but we love darker options for all other flat styles.
