Because You Can’t Do Party Season Without Shiny Shoes
You could bury yourself in shine from head-to-toe or keep the bling in the footwear department – it's your call, really.| December 11, 2019
When the month of December rolls around, an imaginary switch in the brain goes off. There’s a heaviness in the air that lifts off and in place settles the glitter, sequins and good vibes. Translated into the wardrobe, the universally agreed upon dress code for the season reads bling, bling and more bling. While you could technically get away with looking like a human disco ball, the holiday cheer does not settle in the same way with all of us.
Amongst the shimmy and sashay-ers are a more conservative bunch concerned with the practicality of over-the-top embellishments. It’s easy to forget that at some point throughout the night, a sequin dress will get caught in your hair, poke into your skin or the person next to you and on the whole, be of some inconvenience. Call me the grinch if you will but I’m on the other side of the fence on this one.
Hear me out. Have you ever considered the movement a no-frills party look would afford you? Heck, you could duck out of a party early and go entirely unnoticed. For the ones that share the same sentiment in the outfit department, dressing up your feet is an alternative. To make up for the lack of jolly up top, you can full well compensate with icy footwear. We’ve rounded up a line-up of party-appropriate shoes that will still have you embodying the spirit of the holidays but without the full on head-to-toe get up. The degree of bling is yours to pick!
