Sleek and supermodel approved.
From cowboy boots to peek-a-boo pumps , we’ve found five shoes to build your evening look around this festive season.. Carriage or not, you shall glide to the ball…
1. PEEK-A-BOO SHOES
Cut-out heels are having a moment, thanks in part to the spring/summer ‘18 runways that saw everything from Perspex mules to see-through boots and pumps. The translucent trend may not be for everybody, but it’s perfect if you’re looking to stand out.
OPT FOR: Toughen up your look with buckled boots with cut-out side panels and a block heel. Accessorise with a Perspex box. Because, you're committed to the cause.
2. KITSCH KITTEN HEELS
Look around, you’ll find that the once-humble kitten heel has been energized with embellishment worthy of any opulent occasion. Find a pair with bows, feathers, jewels, glitter or all of the above and invest: you’ll wear them all season.
OPT FOR: A black patent leather pair punctuated with an embellished strap, they’ll add an iridescent finish to a minimalist look.
3. BRIGHT WHITE SLINGBACK SHOES
White slingback shoes are back: with a subtle nod to the 80s. If you haven’t traded in your signature cream stilettos for the backless kind yet, now is the time, they'll make any print pop.
OPT FOR: Pointed-toe slingback shoes with a cushioned insole and a low heel – it’s cool to be comfortable. They'll complement floaty frocks and midi skirts equally.
4. COWBOY BOOTS
The perennial style staple, cowboy boots keep finding new ways to woo lovers of the Wild West. The latest iteration is chic, sleek and perfect for after hours.
OPT FOR: Black, bow-embellished calf-length boots with a Cuban heel will make a head-turning statement. If the get-together is more casual, metallic silver ankle boots will be your failsafe.
5. PASTEL PUMPS
Pale pink, powder blue, lavender, mint green… we could go on. If you’re colour-shy, pastel pumps are the easiest way to add some personality to your party look, whether it’s an off-the-shoulder jumpsuit or ruffled tulle skirt.
OPT FOR: Practical yet pretty flats in sky-blue or rose print, to give traditional ballet pumps a run for their money.
