The Perfect Shoes for the Holidays

The holidays bring celebrations and parties every weekend throughout the entire month of December and beyond. With each of these weekends comes the need to find something great to wear. There is nothing better and more necessary to pull an outfit together, and give you that extra confidence boost you might want, than a perfect pair of shoes.

Especially if you plan to attend many events this holiday season, you will need to find shoes that work for each occasion. Whether they are dressy for your office party or comfortable while visiting with relatives, picking out the right shoes will make every night a success.

The Office Holiday Party

Office holiday parties may take place immediately after work, or even during work hours, so you should make sure that the outfit is appropriate for the workplace but ready for the party as well. Black heeled boots should be a staple in any woman’s closet, so consider this for your office party look. A boot like a Valentino high-heeled boot brings us a classic look and turns it up a notch with its four-inch heel. Pair this with a sweater dress and a pair of patterned tights and you will be more than prepared to head to any party, and look great doing it, after a long work day.

The Cozy Family Get Together

Not all events call for anything too formal or fancy. A gathering at mom and dad’s house with kids running around and everybody crowding in the kitchen most likely does not require you to wear elegant heels, but that should never mean you don’t want to look sleek and put together. Consider a pair of pattered flats like Ugg Australia’s Suede Leopard Print Flats. These can add a pop of personality to a pair of dark, washed jeans and a soft and cozy sweater. There is nothing more comfortable than spending time with and being surrounded by close family and friends, except maybe wearing some comfortable and stylish flats while doing it.

The Elegant Cocktail Party

You may only get one chance to get really dolled up this holiday season, so make sure you make it count. You can never go wrong with a pair of glittery or metallic heels when getting ready for a holiday cocktail party. Jimmy Choo’s “Isabel” style is a great example of a glamorous heel that still has an element of fun and fantasy that is needed during the enjoyable and spirited holiday season. It comes in metallic pewter and sparkly gold, so any color choice is likely to go great with lots of outfit options. Pick out a great new party dress, pair it with some glitter or metallic heels, and be prepared for the compliments bound to be coming your way. You will definitely look ready for any swanky holiday evening event.

Regardless of what kinds of events you will be attending this holiday season, or what level of formality is required for them, look and feel your very best with a great and fashionable pair of shoes that are bound to turn heads and call attention. You will be doing plenty of holiday shopping this season so in addition to your holiday shopping list, make sure to treat yourself to something nice too!
