15 Blue Velvet Pieces You Need In Your Wardrobe Now

'She wore blue velvet...' 🎤

Who run the world? Velvet, apparently.

Spotted on every Fashion Week catwalk and celebrity worth their style salt, it’s officially back and bigger than in the 90s - ‘Buffy’ fans will know what a huge deal this is.

Whether or not you like the film, the song or it’s modern covers (Lana Del Rey and Sky Ferreria gave it a whole new lease of life), there’s something darkly alluring about blue velvet.

Swanning around like you broke Bobby Vinton’s heart is one of life’s most simple sartorial pleasures.

But the look is not just limited to luxe evening-wear worthy of a neo-noir femme fatale. The shelves are stacked with midnight blue bodies, jackets and - most importantly - shoes. Net-A-Porter’s fashion retail director has said velvet footwear is the “single biggest trend” the site has imported this season.

Champagne taste on a lemonade budget? We got you. Well, the virtual British high street does, and we’ve sifted through everything to find the 15 best pieces available to buy at the click of a mouse.
