How to Wear Blue Velvet Booties

If you're anything like me, you'll use any excuse to wear 70's inspired fashion. That's why when Sam Edelman released these gorgeous blue velvet booties, I had to have them! World meet Taye, Taye meet the world. The Taye bootie comes in three different color styles. I opted for Navy because it truly goes well with everything. At the price point of $160, I was determined to make these an everyday shoe. Before I decided to purchase them I tried doing research on what to wear with blue velvet bootie and after coming up kind of short on my research I thought I'd try it out myself. 

So below are 4 different ways I intend on working this bootie into my everyday style. 

Sam Edelman: Taye Heeled Ankle Bootie

1. Casual Chic 

To me, nothing says casual like a pair of overalls. This pair is from Forever21 and fits me exactly how I'd like. Not too tight, not too loose. I opted to throw an oversized striped button up from H&M under to break up the look. I think the over-sized and distressed top is the mid-point between put together and casual. I threw on some bangles from Anarchy Street and felt they really completed the look.

2. Shift Dress 

I'm confident any shift dress would look amazing pair up with this style of bootie. It reads very 70s to me so the dress will tell a story. The dress is from Forever21 and I paired it up with the tan leather Anouk&Co backpack. The backpack style is timeless so it doesn't detract from the overall theme of the outfit.

3. Distressed Denim and Graphic Tee

On my days off, I live in distressed denim. This particular pair is from Garage clothing and I love the Good Vibes white tee from Suburban Riot. I threw on a vest cape that I found at Target to add a layer for movement and create some length. I threw on a velvet choker to bring out the black lettering of the tee.

4. Monochrome 

For the final look, I decided to keep a monochromatic theme. I think this is a nice change of pace. Navy booties paired with basic jeans, blue striped button up, and a navy leather moto jacket from Express. I added a bandana to add a blue accessory in order to solidify the theme.
