We believe in the power of shoes. After all, what other wardrobe essential can completely change the overall aesthetic of your outfit? A dress worn with trainers, for example, is instantly given a downtime spin. Well, the same applies for glamorous pairs.
Just imagine what the perfect pair of glittering heels or twinkling flats could do for your favourite, though somewhat tired, little black dress, or a simple jeans and blouse combination. This is why we think, if you invest in anything this party season, it should be a pair of shoes that'll make your existing wardrobe work harder for all those Christmas parties. And you know what? All of our favourite pairs we've found so far all have one thing in common—you'll find them on the high street.

Of course, there's no treat quite like a pair of designer shoes but after seeing the beautiful affordable styles on offer, we can't help feel the high street is leading the fancy footwear charge this season.
As such, from rhinestone detailing and leopard motifs to sumptuous velvet and high-shine metallic finishes, we've created an edit of the best high street party shoes that look so much more expensive than they actually are. Keep scrolling to see them for yourself...
