Five Perfect Pairs Of Party Shoes

Nothing completes an outfit quite like a killer pair of party shoes… here are five of our favourites.

Feathers and embellishment? Absolutely. Go all out this year with these exquisite court shoes from Zara. Because they’re black, they can withstand a lot of detailing without appearing too showy. Wear with opaque tights for daytime.

Feather shoes, €89.95 at Zara

I love a cool refreshing palette at Christmas time, and these silver glitter courts from H&M are perfect. The bow adds a feminine flourish but doesn’t overwhelm the shoe. These would look great with a pair of tuxedo pants, the pretty bow balancing out the masculine tailoring of the suit pants.

Glittery courts with bow, €27.99 at H&M

There’s a real richness to the textures of this shoe that elevates it beyond many high street alternatives. These are ideal Christmas party shoes, taking you from day to night with ease.

Sequin bow block heel shoes, €52 at Topshop

There’s something almost regal about these Massimo Dutti shoes. The velvet fabric and diamanté embellishment suggest luxury, yet discreetly. A beautiful party shoe that will never date, these are an elegant and affordable buy for Christmas.

Heart velvet court shoes, €110 at Massimo Dutti

I like the contemporary design of these slingback shoes, but I also love how the rich burgundy hue and crystal embellishment keeps them rooted in traditional party wear. They offer a lovely mix of traditional and modern.

Crystal slingback, €49.95 at Mango
