It wouldn't be autumn/winter without a spot of velvet in the shops. But, this season, the point of difference is the use of velvet for footwear rather than clothes.
Take these navy velvet platform sandals – they'll ensure you're all set for party season. Luxurious and sexy, you won't believe me when I say they're a mere £18. Just head to Primarni, where you can take your pick of claret velvet, too.
The beauty of this shoe is the towering five-and-a-half-inch heel, tempered by the one-inch platform. Height balanced with comfort means these aren't just good for the dance floor, they'll see you through a whole working day, too. Just keep your outfit simple and sophisticated for a daytime look.
Meanwhile, for a full-on velvet evening shoe, turn heads with these cerise-pink platform sandals from Topshop. They're totally sumptuous at £58. And, for flats, look out for velvet slipper shoes. A signature shoe style this season, velvet and glitter are the key looks.
