13th Nov 2018

Princetown horsebit-detailed glittered leather slippers, €590 from Gucci

Silly season is almost upon us and that means a whole new wardrobe of party outfits. We are annually tasked with the mission of finding showstopping looks that are a) stunning and b) comfortable – not an easy thing to master. There are alternatives to the standard stiletto Christmas party attire. I don’t know about you, but my feet are done with heels by about 9:30 pm anyway. So the perfect solution? Party flats.

These beautiful-yet-practical flat shoes are the perfect remedy to party-tired feet. From embellishments to animal print, mules and sandals, these beauties are just what the doctor ordered – literally.
