Party Season Footwear Sorted

Party season is nearly upon us, and the invitations will soon start rolling in, for work end of year parties, neighborhood gatherings and family days.

It’s time to get your outfits organized, for all the social outings of the season, and shoes play a big role in your sartorial style.

The holidays fall at a time that can make style choices difficult, it’s cold outside, but there are also often cocktail or formal events to attend. So how to stay warm and stylish for all the different events?

For work parties:

What you wear to a work party will depend greatly on your workplace and the style of the event. For small office gatherings or casual dinners, a low heel or heeled boot is perfect. For larger scale events, a high heeled pump or high strappy sandal will be the perfect match for a little black dress or sparkly ensemble.

For parties at home:

For parties you host at home or attend at the homes of friends and loved ones you may want something more casual. A classy flat in a festive metallic tone or a smart ankle boot. Be prepared for houses where shoes are taken off at the doorstep! Keep toes polished and socks and stockings hold free to avoid any embarrassment.

  • Try the Leona Silver Flat for a bright and fun flat shoe that’s perfect for the season
  • Or the Maureen in Grey Suede for a casual and stylish bootie.

For dancing:

Typical holiday party heels just aren’t worth the pain or money, these cheap uncomfortable shoes are usually worn once and never again after one bad night out. When you’ve had a bad experience dancing in high heeled evening shoes it’s tempting to opt for casual footwear or ballet flats during the holiday season. But when your friends or colleagues all arrive in stylish high heels to a festive party it’s easy to be envious and regret the decision to opt for comfort over style.

Remember that a pair of beautiful tights or stockings can be the perfect accompaniment to a pair of sexy heels they can help keep you a little warmer while you wait for a cab after a fantastic night out!
