view gallery VIEW GALLERY

You've got your Christmas party outfit sorted, but what about your shoes? We've got fancy footwear covered.

1. Hobbs Alana Court

Walk into any shoe shop in the country and you’re bound to see a pair of leopard print heels, but this Italian pair is particularly gorgeous. With a soft point, traditional d’Orsay design and a mid-heel, they will set off your little black dress a treat.


2. Boden Dazzling Heels

These elegant shoes literally are dazzling, with their sparkling glitter and feminine ankle strap.  The comfortable mid-heel means showstoppers can keep going into the early hours and they come in three colours – gold, silver and black.


3. Next Silver T-Bar Heels

This affordable pair will go with masses of dress styles, as well as jazzing up a pair of turned up jeans or ankle skimming trousers. They have a heel height of 8cm, which will keep you dancing longer than many other party shoes, and there’s a black lace version available too.


4. BEST BUY Phase Eight Jewel Satin Peep Show

These peep toe platform heels are beautifully finished with a cluster of sparkling beads. As it happens, Phase Eight has a particularly impressive range of party dresses this season, so if you’re after a dress to go with them, this is a good place to head to.


5. Cocorose Sandringham Gold

This genius pair of gold ballerina pumps fold in half and go in Cocorose’s signature travel purse, which makes them ideal for fitting into a handbag to change into after work or for changing into half way through the evening when your feet have had enough of heels.


6. L K Bennett Crystal Mini Kitten Point Toe Heel

These crystal kitten heels, which also come in black or pink, will set you back a bit, but you’ve got to admit they have the wow factor. Packed full of sparkle, from the glitter-sprayed upper to the crystals on the toe, the petite kitten heel and elegant point helps keep things chic.


7. Dune Blazing

There’s no colour more festive than red. But whilst these fabulous metal twisted heeled court shoes are have plenty of yuletide merriment to wear to Christmas parties, they’ll serve you well through through the rest of the year too.


8. Steve Madden Spycee

Get ready to sparkle. If you like standing out, these bold and sassy statement stiletto platforms are made to be noticed. There’s an easy access back zip, but you’ll need to be able to handle super high stilettos as these are 14.5cm high.


9. Clarks Amulet Jewel

Prefer flats? These beautiful women’s pumps have a detailed jewelled trim and an elegant pointed toe, which make them the perfect flat for day or evening events this Christmas. Don’t want black? Fear not, they’re also available in red.


10.  John Lewis Occasion Goring Kitten Heel Sandals

Here’s a timeless and classic shoe that will add some instant chic to your outfit for formal functions with its sparkly detail at the front and buckle ankle strap. The heel is low, so you need not worry about aching feet and they’ll be great for summertime too.
