Christmas is coming. When it comes to your holiday party-circuit wardrobe, there’s no denying the shoes make the look. And there’s no better time than summer to experiment with your footwear.
We’re officially giving you permission to selfishly put aside the list of gifts you need to buy – it’s time to prep your party-season wardrobe. Whether you’re the type to invest in a great little black dress or go all-in on a sparkly new number for each party, festive shoes are about cheerfulness. From flats to stilettos, classic styles to playful details, the most refreshing options for this season from Europa Art & Co play with colour, texture and embellishment, injecting new life into the most tried-and-true party outfit. Better still, these versatile shoes are brimming with possibilities for all seasons. Santa baby, we’ll take them all!
Unapologetically sparkly heels to dance the night away in: We’re ready for joy, and we’re ready for fun! Sequin dresses, tinsel accessories, glitter-coated handbags – ‘tis the season to go all in on all-sparkle everything. First on the list? Some killer heels. Let the Schutz Aida Nina in metallic red leather or the Guilhermina Aida Scarlet in metallic silver leather tempt you to embrace a hint of sparkle or sheen. Worn with a pared-down LBD or an equally sparkly party outfit, the unapologetically festive Martina gold glitter slingback heels and Europa Art Alba Ross in gold will give the brightest holiday displays a run for their money. Have your feet grown accustomed to only the comfiest of shoes? Ease into a pair of the Sam Edelman Aida Cap in white – with a low 3cm heel, they’re the perfect re-emergence heel.
Festive flats for at-home holiday fêtes: Cheers to slipping into something both fabulously festive and elegantly comfortable. If you’re not ready for a heel, the statement-making DKNY black-and-white points flats will fulfil your current comfort-first needs while also delivering a whopping dollop of joy. Metallics are a great way to make a statement with your footwear, too – the versatile Tory Burch rose gold pumps and Clarks Sense Lula in bronze metallic leather will go with anything in your Christmas wardrobe. Not fancy-feeling enough? A stylish solution for all the upcoming holidays with a dash of extra sparkle, the Chiara Ferragni silver glitter pumps will be the perfect addition to any chic festive ensemble. And who wouldn’t want to sip on a glass of bubbly in a loose silk suit or gorgeous holiday housedress with a pair of Chiara Ferragni black glitter pumps? Style them with black tights for a fun grown-up look.
You can wear jewellery if you want, but with shoes this festive, you really won’t need to. Shop online at www.europaart.co.za for party-ready shoes to kick-start your holiday season.
