’Tis the season for festive soirees, nights out, holiday parties, and New Year’s eve bashes. But getting dressed to the nines doesn’t only mean sequined dresses or printed partywear. In fact, we might suggest starting with your ensembles from the feet up. From power platforms to high-shine heels, the party shoe category has taken off.
Valentino and Versace have inspired the return of the mega platform, while accessory labels like D’accori and Amina Muaddi have best-selling styles that have led the charge when it comes to club-ready crystal-covered heels, which have trouble staying in stock. In addition to these glam going-out shoes, Loewe has tied a bow on top, literally, on a pair of silver-heeled sandals, while Aquazurra grounds their satin crossover sandals with a disco ball heel for the holiday season.
In addition to the beautiful jewel tones we see during the November and December months, a bubbly but rich shade of hot pink has become the one color to note. Porte and Paire, Paris Texas, and The Attico have captured the essence of the jubilant shade perfectly with their block-heeled styles. All the while, Prada has drenched a handful of their signature loafers with crystals for a sparkling take on a classic, providing the perfect option for those who don’t love a sky-high heel. For shoe lovers at heart, these styles are pretty hard to resist.
