We’re finally at the tail end of January and at last spring is in sight. Whilst the temperature has crept up enough for us to swap our knee-high boots for some lighter styles, we’re still a way off from strappy sandals season. Luckily, I’ve found the perfect compromise. Composed a luxuriously soft, comfortable and cosy fabric, velvet mary janes are the breathable, yet snug footwear style that editors and influencers are opting for this season.

In a plush and sleek fabric, these chic shoes do all of the hard work for you. With a naturally dress edge and a neat buckle fastening, velvet mary janes have the innate ability to freshen up a casual jeans outfit or add the finishing touch to a formal get-up. Last year saw a meteoric rise in the popularity of mary janes as fashion people began to retire their trusty heels in favour of the practical yet chic design. Whilst velvet mary janes have been catching our attention as of late, last season brought sleek leather styles, glamorous crystal-embellished flats, and summer-ready mesh styles into the mainstream.

Whilst some brands have spend seasons honing exquisite velvet mary janes, others have perfected their styles more recently. From Le Monde Beryl’s cult velvet flats, to Vibi Venezia’s two-tone designs and Reformation’s elegant black slippers—not to mention Zara’s excellent, affordable option—velvet mary janes have become a staple offering amongst some of our favourite retailers.
