With this useful party shoes buying guide and top tips youll soon be dancing the night away in your perfect party shoes.
Work out and stay within budget
Its vital that you work out how much you can afford on your party shoes, especially with Christmas fast approaching and dont be tempted to overspend on those must have shoes, you simply wont get the wear out of them. But certainly dont restrict yourself, party shoes are so important and if youre not completely happy with them then you just wont look and feel your best.
Pick the right style to suit your outfit
You might not realise it but a pair of shoes can make or break an outfit and there are some key rules to follow. Avoid ankle strap shoes if youre short, theyll make your legs look even shorter in dresses and skirts. Peep toe shoes and nude coloured shoes elongate the body and create an illusion of appearing taller, while wedges are really slimming. Strappy sandals and slingbacks are great as party shoes because theyre adjustable to fit you perfectly.
Choosing the perfect shade
Dont attempt to match the colour of your shoes with your outfit, youll never find the right shade and it never seems to just work. Black, gold and silver are all typical party shoes and probably the most versatile, while nude and cream are also continuing into the party season. If your outfit is dark add a splash of colour with a pair of brightly coloured shoes like red, pink or purple or try to pick a colour from your outfit to highlight.
Getting the little touches right
If your party outfit is all about the bling avoid over doing it with the shoes, sometimes less is more, so go for simple and understated shoes with minimal detailing. If youve gone for a simple outfit then feel free to bling it up with a pair of all singing all dancing party shoes adorned with glitter, jewels and sparkle, theyll bring your outfit to life and add that touch of much needed glamour.
Wear a heel height thats comfortable
You might think the higher the heel the better but thats not necessarily the case. Of course, killer heels are the ultimate in party shoes but whats the point in buying them if it means you cant hit the dance floor or strut in them without falling over or grimacing in pain? Only choose a pair of shoes with a heel height that you know you can walk in and that will be comfortable. If youre adamant on buying killer heels, find a pair with a thick platform sole or even wedges that will make them much more comfortable.
– Invest in a pair of folding pumps to pop your aching feet into once the nights over; they make the perfect after party shoes to make your way home in.
– Dont impulse buy; just because a pair of shoes look absolutely amazing they might not be the right party shoes for you.
– Gel pads on the balls of your feet will work a treat for easing those aches and pains from dancing.
Killer heel? Check. Sparkle? Check. Comfortable? Check. Within budget? Check. It sounds like youve found your perfect party shoes!
