Because Party Season Is Coming – And You Need Shoes
Let our edit of the season's most blinged-to-the-heavens shoes be your wingwoman at all those parties.| November 3, 2016
Alas, party season is a-cometh. It is that one time of the year where those accustomed to black-and-white garb shed their monochromatic shells in favour of shiny alternatives. The season where the sequinned and glittered things chilling at the back of your wardrobe are moved to the front. Suddenly, that bejewelled shoe you usually ignore becomes so appealing and appropriate. Mo’ glitter, mo’ better, the season says.
While holiday-slash-party season isn’t until a month away, it never hurts to start early. That is what November is for IMO – a month to build up the feels and the squeals so that the holiday mood lasts longer. A month for you to get all the ammo you need to take on the festivities of December. Absolutely no judgement if you’re already adding Christmas sweaters to your cart.
Now, the holiday-slash-party season shoe is an important one to consider. Not only will it absolutely put you in the mood for the festivities, it doubles as a conversation starter when you’re at all those parties. You stand to benefit. The person you’re having an awkward conversation with stands to benefit. It might even be the gateway to some digits. It is a win-win-win!
To get you started, we’ve rounded up some of the blingiest, most party-appropriate shoes of the season. Some look like they’ve been through a glitter explosion of sorts, others comes complete with their own bows. Heck, we’ve even got one that comes with its own chandelier. (Looking at you, Dolce & Gabbana pumps.) If you decide to give your feet a break while you bask in the holiday mood, we’ve got you – and your twinkle toes – covered, too. Which of these 36 gloriously shiny and sparkly shoes is your top pick? Tell me!
