5 Of The Best Party Shoes

5 Of The Best Party Shoes

Even flat-shoe devotees are seduced by the partyish feel of a heel at Christmas. Here are five chic party shoes to see you through the holidays.

I love the intricate lace effect of these shoes, and the fact that the heel is not too high. Perfect day-to night heels, they’ll pair easily with denims (go for an indigo wash or black rather than blue), tuxedo trousers or midi skirts.

Wraparound leather high heel shoes, €59.95 at Zara

The luxe velvet covering and glamorous pearl embellishment of these ankle-strap shoes are balanced by the muted shade of mushroom. Plus the block heel will provide comfort from day to evening.

The combination of cobalt blue and teal feels so modern here. Plus the fan detail at the front of the shoe adds a lovely feminine flourish to what is otherwise a pared-back shape.

If you can’t go a little OTT at Christmas, when can you? These feather-trimmed, gold-heeled sandals are a bit of a fairytale shoe. Not usually something I’d wear,?but at Christmas miracles can happen.

Feather embellished satin and patent leather sandals, Marco De Vincenzo, €640 at net-a-porter.com

I’ve featured these shoes on Image.ie before, but they’re worth highlighting again as they’re a great option for this time of year. Easy to walk in (crucial), festively gold (imperative), but with a very modern shape (bonus). They’re perfect for those having a very contemporary Christmas this year.
