When it comes to cocktail dresses or prom dresses, I often have the feeling that the color blue, more precisely dark blue, is underestimated. Have you ever seen someone wear a blue velvet dress to a party and noticed how deep the dress looks? While some people prefer to look sexy and flashy, others want to look deep and mature. And these feelings are not mutually exclusive, by the way. For this blog post, I’ve gathered some of the best blue velvet dress outfit ideas and I’m going to share them with you now.
Blue Spaghetti Strap Velvet Bodycon Dress
I’ve always been a fan of minimal outfits. Now let me start this top outfit list with a super-minimal outfit that looks stunning too. The dress here is a figure-hugging velvet dress with blue spaghetti straps. Just wear it with a pair of black open toe heels with ankle straps and you are ready to shine in front of people with this minimal outfit.
Blue long-sleeved velvet mini dress
For those of you who don’t really want to get a lot of attention at a cocktail party and still want to look good to show respect, here is a blue velvet long sleeve mini dress that can do just that. Wear the dress with silver heels to complete this low-key, beautiful outfit.
Blue Long Sleeve Sweetheart Neckline Velvet Sheath Dress
It is not often that a dress with a sweetheart neckline is a long-sleeved dress. Very often the heart-shaped neckline comes sleeveless or strapless. This time, this blue velvet sheath mini dress with the long sleeves looks so adorable. Team the dress with stockings and black ankle boots for a beautiful and approachable look.
Blue velvet blazer dress
The blazer dress is so cool that every time you see a blazer dress you feel like you are seeing a very creative outfit. In this case, it’s a blue velvet blazer dress. It is simply combined with black open toe heels. This would be a great outfit for a manager or boss to wear to a corporate event such as an annual dinner if they prefer to dress up.
Blue velvet shift dress with a white faux fur coat
So far I haven’t mentioned an outfit that answers the question of which jacket to wear with a blue velvet dress. Here we got a very nice answer. The blue velvet shift dress is combined with a white faux fur coat to create an enchanting look. Wear light pink heels to add a feminine touch to the outfit.
Blue Flutter Sleeve Gathered Waist Dress
For those of you who don’t like looking like you’re struggling to look gorgeous at a cocktail party, here is a relatively casual dress that you would love to wear. It’s a blue velvet dress with fluttering sleeves. Wear it with black open toe ballet shoes to complete this outfit. It’s one that is really easy to pull off.
Blue Fit and Flare Mini Dress with Knee High Boots
Here’s another outfit that is very easy to take off. It consists of a blue velvet long-sleeved skater dress, stockings and knee-high boots made of black suede. By the way, one of the advantages of a skater dress is that it looks great on both tall and petite girls.
Blue, knee-length, flared velvet dress with a silver belt
To look a bit more powerful and dominant, here is a blue velvet dress with a wide silver belt. The cut and color make the dress feel powerful and serious. To keep the powerful look consistent, wear burgundy and gold heels to complete the outfit.
Blue Choker Neck Open Chest Mini Dress
You know how chokers have become a huge trend in the fashion world these days. It has reached a point where some dresses simply incorporate a choker as part of the dress. For example, check out this blue open-chest dress with a choker neckline. It looks like a deep V-neck dress with a separate choker. This is such an interesting design and trend. To style the dress, just wear it with blue open-toed heels.
Blue velvet sheath dress with nude heeled sandals
Now let’s talk about an outfit that can make you look like the girl next door. Don’t underestimate the power of a girl next door. Sometimes, contrary to intuition, the most popular lady at a cocktail party is one who dresses this way, not the one who dresses extremely sexy. Anyway, back to that outfit, it consists of a blue long sleeve velvet dress with a round neckline. Wear it with nude heeled sandals and a subtle silver necklace and you’re good to go.
Blue skater dress with high boots
Here’s another girl next door. This time it’s a short-sleeved skater dress made of blue velvet, paired with black, thigh-high suede boots. I just love how the combination of skater dress and overknee boots looks so ladylike and elegant.
Blue high split bodycon maxi dress
Well if you want to show off your legs but want to look more mature. Instead of wearing a mini dress, you can wear this blue high split velvet body hugging maxi dress. A pair of black ankle strap heels is a great way to complete your look.
Spaghetti Straps Deep V Body Neck Bodycon Midi Dress
This outfit shows how a choker can make an outfit more stylish. A blue bodycon midi dress with a deep v-neckline, a black choker and black leather mid-calf boots for a chic and stylish look.
Dark blue maxi dress with white sneakers
I’ve always been a fan of the white sneakers because they are just so versatile. If you have the confidence to wear an atypical outfit, wear this blue velvet maxi high split dress with white sneakers. They don’t sound right on paper. But as you can see from the result, it’s a creative and good looking outfit.
Two-piece blue knee-length dress
For a cute and low-key sexy look, you can wear this two-piece blue velvet dress. The upper part is a strapless top, while the lower part is a battered skirt. Pair the dress with silver heels to complete this outfit with a chic twist.
