Decode: What could be more royal than a pair of velvet shoes? At Alberta Ferretti, red buckled shoes came with regal airs and graces, while at Givenchy and Dries Van Noten, sturdy ankle boots had a sophisticated coating. Velvet also made into loafers, purple stilettos at Balmain and gilded ones from Stella McCartney.

StyleCracker tip: If you want to keep it subtle, go for a pair of velvet boots with a classic checked shirt and denims. For a statement look, a pair of ruby red sling backs or velvet stilettos are your best bet.
