Five party heels that won't cause ‘murder on the dance floor'
Bye bye stilettos!
New Year's eve is right around the corner and you've probably picked the perfect dress to see you through the night, but no festive ensemble is truly complete without the right pair party-ready shoes. Yes, a killer pair of metallic heels will take your ensemble and elevate it to new heights; bright neon mules are one of the best conversation starters at any party; and nothing lifts the spirits, or gets the feet tapping, like a glittering pair of Rhinestone-studded sandals.
But aesthetics aren't always key; after all, what can make or break an outfit and your evening, is just how comfortable those heels on you're feet are. Yes, nowadays practicality is a definite essential, because it doesn't do much good if you're in too much pain to enjoy the festive merriment nursing blisters till the clock strikes 12.
Luckily, pretty kitten heels have come into focus of late, offering stylish alternatives to vertiginous spindly stilettos. From Prada's crystal-embellished suede mules to Marco de Vincenzo's rhinestone pumps, shoe-loving labels have stepped up their game, offering an irresistible array of party-ready evening flats that will carry you through a night on the dance floor.
