The Shoe Trend Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Gigi Hadid Are Loving

Velvet is one of those fabrications that is instantly associated with winter, much like shearling or fur.

When it comes to shoes, velvet was mostly found on smoking slippers, but not anymore. Designers are using velvet for a whole range of shoe styles, and celebrities are totally embracing it.

This year, velvet has come together with another celeb-favored trend: thigh-high boots. Kourtney Kardashian has rocked a blue pair by Aquazzura with nothing but a T-shirt, and Taylor Swift wore a red pair by Stuart Weitzman to Tommy Hilfiger’s spring ’17 runway show.

While not all sandals are appropriate for the cold weather, velvet versions work for winter events, as shown by Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence.

Velvet booties are beloved by jet-setting models Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid. Jenner even has a purple velvet pair in her Kendall + Kylie shoe line with her sister Kylie Jenner. The Hadid sisters are partial to Stuart Weitzman’s velvet Clinger style.

Designers will likely continue to get creative with velvet, but one thing we know for sure: It’s here to stay.
