The Shoe Styles You Need For The Holiday Season

The holiday season is upon us, and with Halloween out of the way it’s time to start thinking about your festive shoe wardrobe.

The holidays are a busy time for social events and can put a real strain on the wardrobe. With such a busy social calendar it’s easy to start worrying about wearing the same outfit two nights in a row, or not having the appropriate attire for the given occasion.

We’ve put together a simple guide to the shoe styles you need for the holiday season.

Low Heeled Boots

Brown heeled boots round toe

Low heeled boots are a must-have in Fall/Winter. A chic pair of high-quality leather boots with a low and comfortable heel will see you through so many different social occasions. These are shoes you can wear everywhere from caroling, to gift shopping, to school recitals, to big family gatherings.

A chic classic colored booth with a low heel can also be paired with tights and a cocktail dress or tailored trousers for work end of year parties and events.

Our top picks for low heeled ankle boots are:

The Monica in Espresso or Black Nappa

This style is a classic mid-level ankle boot in smooth nappa leather paired with stitched leather detailing gives these booties just the right amount of detail to set them apart. In rich classic colors, these booties are a staple in your fall wardrobe.

The Maureen In Black Suede or Grey Suede

This wedge heel is excellent if you’re not a fan of heels but want a chic style for the holidays. A stable and sturdy wedge is the ideal companion for being on your feet from day to night. The cozy fur lining will keep you toasty warm all season long.

Classic Black Heels

Black Kitten Heel

Just like your little black dress, and a pair of timeless little black heels will see you through any classy occasion. They’re perfect to match with party dresses or tailored pantsuits for work events and festive parties.

Our top picks for a classic black heel are:

The Phyllis In Black Patent

Phyllis is a chic kitten heel which is the shoe of the season in 2017. This classic pump is available in a variety of beautiful leathers, as well as a fabric option. The addition of our nanoGel technology makes this shoe a stand out. The comfort this shoe provides is exactly what you have been looking for in this wardrobe staple.

The Mariah In Black Nappa

For a slightly higher heel try the Mariah, a classic pump. A good stiletto heel is a wardrobe staple, now get fashion and comfort in one shoe.


The Metallic Shoe

December is the month of glitter and gold, metallic and sparkles. Get in the spirit of the season with a stunning metallic shoe that will make you the star of any social gathering. If you’re not brave enough for a full sparkly dress than a metallic shoe is a great way to jump on the trend in a more subtle way.

Our picks for metallic styles are:

The Phyllis in Pewter Mirror Nappa

A super comfortable kitten heel at the perfect height and made of great quality materials. This high shine style is comfortable but eye-catching to make a statement.

The Leona in Pewter Mirror Nappa

This is a great choice if you want to try the metallic trend but aren’t a big fan of heels. This chic flat is still smart and looks just as gorgeous as heels with a party outfit.
