Get in Stride with Our Holiday Shoe Guide
This time of year, your schedule is probably packed with events requiring you to dress to impress. Between office parties, get togethers with family, and meeting up with old friends from school, you’re going to need quite a few show-stopping outfits, complete with a few equally stunning pairs of shoes. And while this season isn’t short on stylish shoe options, there are certainly a few trends that will help you stand out.
First, dress up any basic outfit with an extra eye-catching pair of flats. You could give your footwear an added dose of glam with a glittery exterior. They’re fun, festive, and perfect for the party season. Or, you can ditch the glitter and opt instead for a flashy pair of metallics. In this post from earlier this year, writer Jasmine Garnsworthy said that the trend “achieves the seemingly impossible by injecting ultra comfortable flat shoes with the ability to actually dress up an outfit.” To really nail the look, try a simple pair of loafers or ballet flats in gold or silver. They’re perfect for this time of year and versatile enough that you can wear them long after the season ends.
Next, find a pair of boots. Nothing’s worse than freezing your appendages off at an outdoor holiday party in December. If you look at the shoes available here, you can see that ankle boots are still a popular cut for the season. Suede in particular has been a heavily favored fabric. You can probably get the most use out of a solid-colored black or brown pair, but if you want something a little more fun for the season, try a pair with some added fur detail or a jeweled heel.
Finally, you’ll need an impressive pair of heels. Whether you want to look good for someone new, boost your confidence, or just complete a formal ensemble, heels are the go-to style. For something a little more exciting, try a heel embellished with a bit of fringe. Fringe was the most popular detail of fall fashion, and it’s expected to continue dominating styles well into the winter.

There’s only a few more weeks left until the holiday season wraps. If you haven’t gotten a little something for yourself yet, now is the perfect time!
