When it comes to planning your perfect party outfit for the holiday season, making a statement is key. You may think you have the head-turning impact down pretty well with that trendy cocktail dress or sleek pencil skirt and sequined top, but let’s face it — no special occasion ensemble is complete without a pair of seriously chic shoes. In fact, I’m all for planning your outfit around some stellar heels as long as they don’t fail to bring the “wow” factor — and this season is no time to be shy when it comes to statement-making shoes!
Go for something slinky and snaky like these shimmery-detailed strappy Jimmy Choo “Feline” sandals (black and blue never looked so sultry!), or walk on the really wild side with a pair of leopard print bandage sandals by Emilio Pucci, which can make even the most understated LBD look ridiculously fierce! To add some much-needed glitz to an otherwise matte outfit, a pair of glittery platform sandals like these by Diane von Furstenberg are fun and festive without overpowering your cocktail dress of choice. However, if you prefer to stick to your tried-and-true platform pump, put a spin on the classic look with an unexpected pop of color like bright fuchsia, courtesy of YSL!
