Trend of the week: Seasonal, stylish shoes

It’s not just the tree that needs decorating, says Annmarie O’Connor. With these shoes your feet will be suitably adorned for the holiday season.

Inspiration

It’s the time of year for making an entrance and what better way to do so than with festive footwear. This season’s elaborate edit is definitely one for the Santa list. Glitter kitten heels, lamé slippers and satin mules remind us that comfort needn’t involve compromise. As for the more stalwart shoe fans, Jimmy Choo’s bejewelled sandals and courts (some featuring mix and match gems) inspire us to believe in magic. Prepare to sprinkle that fashion fairy dust!

Trend of the week: Seasonal, stylish shoes

Style hacks

Slippers

Pair with capri trousers and a sharp tux jacket.

Mules

Wear with an off-the-shoulder top and flared trousers or a cami dress and tee combo.

Kitten heels

Offset the dainty air with a pair of vintage frayed jeans and a lace or velvet top.

Strappy sandals

Any dress or skirt with a midi to mini hem –– the ankle is the star of the show!


Lifestyle

Tis the season for sequins and excess, but minimalists can stick to their style guns in the season’s next level neutrals.
