Perfect Shoes for the Party Season
Everyone looks forward to December for the usual reasons- Christmas and New Year. But December also signals the beginning of party season, a time when invites flood in from colleagues, clients, friends and family asking you to join them in celebrating the festive period.
For the fashion-conscious this is welcomed with open arms because a handful of events to attend means one thing – outfit shopping! Some people can be picky about wearing an outfit more than once in a short period of time, that’s up to them, but luckily for us footwear is one piece of the outfit that can be reworked time and time again in a number of ways.
With this in mind, we’ve picked out our three favourite men’s and women’s shoes which we feel are perfect for the party season ahead.
Men’s party season shoes
Brogues are very much on trend at the minute so our first choice for the gents had to be the brilliant Nottingham handcrafted brogues by Chatham Marine – a quintessentially British style done by a quintessentially British brand. The tan leather works really well with a blue or grey suit, giving you the option to mix and match at different events.
Secondly, the Rieker Alabama boots are a versatile style that can be worn with jeans as easily they can with a suit. Plus, with a warm fleece lining, these are a great choice for tackling the cold winter weather.
Lastly, for the men we head back to the brogues with a rather vibrant pair of blue Wingtip brogues by Barker Grant. These shoes will surely be the centrepiece of any outfit and will definitely get people talking as you catch up with old friends.
Women’s party season heels
Time for the ladies! Peter Kaiser has some amazing styles in this season so we kick things off with their Rilana wedge boots in black snake skin. Match them up with a snake skin handbag or let them stand out against a black outfit – they give you plenty of options for your busy party schedule!
Now for something a little more subtle with the women’s Rieker Jester brogues. These are another contemporary take on this incredibly popular style and feature a mid-heel and shiny patent leather upper which is highly adaptable when it comes to planning your party outfits.
Our final choice sees us turn back to the amazing Peter Kaiser with their Veila platform court shoes. These subtle heels will blend into any outfit without drawing too much attention to themselves, but that doesn’t take anything away from their impressively high quality construction.
