If you like being last on the dance floor
I figured that plenty of you (like me) won’t actually be going to any swish Christmas/New Year parties. If you’re more likely to be celebrating down the pub or at a friend’s house, you might want something even more comfortable than a party flat – something that goes with your boyfriend jeans…although you still want to look festive, right? In which case, you need a pair of party trainers. There’s something for every budget here. Happy shopping!
The velvet touch
Velvet has always been a festive perennial, and now that applies to shoes, too. And since there are absolutely loads of fabulous sequin skirts on offer (have you guys SEEN Zara lately?!) it’s a good idea to have a non-glittery option for your feet; that’s where velvet works really well. The texture is luxe and perfect for this time of year, but they’ll be just as nice in the summer too.
The Sparkle Kicks
The sparkle has gone a bit less garish this year, with subtle glitter sneakers – some of which only have a slight sheen. My favourites are still the Converse sequin Chucks though. I’ve worn mine for the last two Christmases and I can’t wait to unpack them again this year!
The Wild Side
Just the same as my belief that an animal print pointy flat is always party appropriate, so the animal print sneaker is a brilliant option for this season. I’ve found a few styles here that incorporate a bright colour as well as some leopard, which I LOVE!
