As fashion fans, we know you don’t need a reason to pick up a new pair of shoes (or two), but party season is just days away! Accordingly, we are super excited about today’s special Chic Shoe Buys story. Not only is it literally jam-packed with festive footwear—from sequined ankle booties to beaded platform heels—but it contains options for every last one of you, whether you have a modest budget or you are ready for a major spending spree. On that note, click through to today’s story and make sure you take notes as we are sure you will find something you just have to have inside!
As you know, party season is the perfect time of year to play with your accessories—whether that means choosing a bright color, a bold print, a pretty embellishment, or a shimmering metallic. Luckily, we have all of these options covered! For instance, if you are looking for something colorful, you simply must check out Topshop’s Podium Cross Over Platform Sandals ($200). The green suede instantly turns these shoes into the centerpiece of your outfit, while the gold piping adds a touch of glamour. We are equally smitten with Dolce Vita’s Babette Heels ($139.99). These aren’t for the faint of heart—they will definitely steal the focus from the rest of your outfit—but if you want color, these should be your go-to shoes! Now, if it is a bold print you are after, make sure you check out Alice + Olivia’s Jana Ankle-Strap Wedge Sandals ($280). Not only are these wedges on-trend—colorful python prints were everywhere during the fall collections—but the wedge heel will allow you to dance the night away.
If you want a shoe with a pretty embellishment, we have two in mind. Firstly, who can resist the charm of Burberry Prorsum’s Harewood Beaded Sandals ($795)? Think of these shoes as jewelry for your foot—the beads drape down and over your ankle, making these shoes a talking point, not just an accessory. On the other hand, if you are looking to make an investment, we suggest you opt for something with a timeless twist, like Jimmy Choo’s Koko Metallic Leather And Suede Sandals ($1,150). They are ultra-flattering, have a glamorous element to them, but most importantly, they will go with just about everything in your closet.
Last, but certainly not least, we couldn’t do a party season shoe story without including a slew of must-have metallic options. To start, make sure you check out Reiss’s Martha Gate Chain Sandal ($340). Although we suggest pairing these with a little black dress and then playing them up with similarly shimmery accessories, these would also look amazing with a pair of skinny leather pants, or a python-print mini dress—in fact, the options are endless. For the same reasons, we love Stuart Weitzman’s Sequined Lace-Up Booties ($315). They are super versatile, they have eye-catching details, and they have a little more ankle support if you are not used to wearing heels. On that note, our last pick is for the girl who prefers a flat—the Sequined Flats ($49.90) by Zara. Thanks to the smattering of sequins, these will add life to your outfit, but that is not what we love most about them. In actual fact, the best thing about these shoes is that they are truly an all-round shoe—you can wear them to a daytime cocktail party, a nighttime soiree, and anything in between! Happy shopping!
