THE LIFE AND SOLE OF THE PARTY

From the Melbourne Cup to the office Christmas party, this season’s dazzling designs will definitely put you in the mood to party. Dancefloor-ready feet? You bet

The look-at-me heels

Who says black is boring? Throw a serious amount of glitter into the equation and you’ve got a pair of party shoes that are bound to catch compliments. And, despite the height, our clever Insolia technology helps keeps them comfy all night long.

The dressed-up boots

Do you refuse to be parted from your beloved ankle boots? Then it’s time to invest in a party-ready pair. The patent finish on these mid-heel boots gives them the glitzy edge needed for any special occasion.

The printed platforms

With a runway-ready feel, these geometric printed platforms are top of our wish list for this season. They look fabulous teamed with brown, the colour of the season, but work equally well with a simple LBD to make a statement. Supermodel legs, guaranteed.

The stylish sandals

Barely there sandals continue to make waves this season, although for a more festive touch, choose a metallic blue pair over nude. Fierce shoes like this look great balanced out with casual denim – our Carrie skinny jeans are the perfect party choice, with super-soft fabric that’s flexible enough for even the most enthusiastic dancer.

The glittery flats

You don’t have to wear heels to look dressed up – with embellished, sparkly and statement flats on offer, even the most avid heel avoider has plenty of party shoe options. We love these gold glittery Mary Janes, which offer a dazzling finish to any outfit as well as supreme comfort.

The statement heels

From sculptural shapes to futuristic finishes, showstopping heels are a big 2019 trend. The party lovers’ version comes in the form of these blingy gold heels, which are the perfect day-to-night height. Team with a pair of opulent cigarette pants for a modern take on festive style.
