When it comes to cocktail dresses or prom dresses, I often feel that the color of blue, more specifically dark blue, is too underrated. Have you ever seen someone wearing a blue velvet dress in a party and realize how deep the dress looks. While some people prefer to look sexy and eye catching, some others want to look deep and mature. And these feels are not mutually exclusive by the way. For this blog post, I have collected some of the best blue velvet dress outfit ideas and I am going to share with you right now.
