The Holiday Heels I’m Into

Don’t you just love how spontaneous the Holidays can be? That’s always been one of my favorite parts about the never-ending party train that ensues around the end of the year. One thing leads to another and your throwing on your party shoes and some red lips. For this very reason I like to be fully prepared and ready for any fun that might come my way and the easiest trick to go from daytime to where’s-my-glass-of-champagne-time is to have some statement heels on hand.

Your heels can say a lot—if only they could talk, or maybe we don’t want them to. A switch of a sole can transform your mood and overall vibe you have going on so let’s go through the different messages you can put out at that next holiday party.

Something Shiny

Glitter, sequins or shiny platinum, this is the easiest way to jump into the holiday spirit. It’s my go-to since it usually translates to either gold or silver and most everything will pair well with a metallic. I found these Alexandre Birman Wrap Heels on Farfetch and love the touch of glamour they add to a daytime look.

A Bold Red

Now Santa might be proud of this one. An obvious choice for a Holiday statement, but since red is having such a moment this year, I’ve been finding myself searching for the perfect poppy red heel. Plus it’s the perfect compliment to your black essentials or even a serious blazer that needs a playful friend.

Basic, But Essential, Black

Every woman should have a pair of black pumps in their closet for so many reasons. One, you’ll wear them a ton, trust me, and two, the right pair will make you feel amazing while giving you the illusion of length. The higher you can go, the better.

So wherever you land this holiday party season, don’t forget your heels.
