There are many types of footwear that you can wear to a party, but not all of them will be appropriate. The best shoes for parties are those that are comfortable, stylish and easy to dance in.
Here is a list of some of the most popular types of shoes and why they might be good for parties:
Flats are great for any kind of party because they’re comfortable and easy to walk in. For example, if your party is going to be held on grass or other hard surfaces, then flats will make it easier for you to move around without getting blisters or hurting your feet.
Although they may not be as comfortable as flats, high heels can make you look more elegant and sophisticated at your event. This is especially true if you’re attending an evening affair where everyone else will be wearing high heels anyway. Although high heels don’t necessarily have to be worn with formal attire (they can also look great with jeans), they do tend to go well with professional clothing styles like suits or cocktail dresses.
Best Shoes For Parties
From Aquazzura to Jimmy Choo, here are the sparkly party shoes to see you through to 2022…
When it comes to dressing for your end of year social calendar, the pressure to adhere to party season style codes can feel a lot. But instead of replacing your signature all black look with swathes of sequins and sparkles, there’s an alternative way to nod to the party season while still feeling ‘you’: a glitzy pair of party shoes.
Some fun footwear – be that some diamanté-emblazoned mules or a neon-hued pair of sky highs – are a quick way to spin your outfit for the season. Our advice? Go simple up top – either with an LBD or leather trousers and strappy top – and jazz it up with your footwear, opting for a brightly coloured, crystal-adorned pair of heels.
Luckily, this year’s offering is packed with some suitably fun options, from a Carrie Bradshaw-worthy bow-embellished Jimmy Choo pair and the electric purple Gianvito Rossi PVC mules of dreams…
