When it comes to party season, there are a few go-to’s many of us rely on year after year. There’s the timeless LBD that’s sophisticated enough for the office Christmas party yet chic enough to take you for drinks afterwards, the reliable going-out top that can make just about any pair of jeans look event appropriate, and, of course, the token fancy clutch that solely comes out on those extra special occasions.
Though party dressing doesn’t have to be a complete departure from your everyday wardrobe, and while the Christmas and New Years period is often synonymous with sparkle and shine, decking yourself out in a sequinned dress or crystal-embellished top isn’t the only way to feel festive. This year, why not give a nod to the holiday season through footwear instead?
Crystal-embellished heels or glitter-adorned boots provide an unexpected way to elevate any outfit for party season without having to overhaul your entire wardrobe or completely change your usual style. You can still throw on your trusty LBD or opt for your favourite pair of jeans, but adding a sparkly shoe will simply enhance the look. Thankfully, a few stylish women have already trialled the trend, providing us with much inspiration for the months ahead.
For those who are still on the fence about shiny footwear, there are many pairs of shoes available that limit the sparkle element to the heel only, providing the perfect opportunity to test the glistening waters (or dip your toe in the trend, so to speak).
Scroll through below for sparkly shoes a plenty and get ready to put your best foot forward this party season.
