14 Pairs of Party Ready Glitter Shoes
There's no doubt that a pair of sparkle valet parking heels will make your legs look longer. Whether in nude, black or one of this season's brights sparkle shoes are just perfect for this time of year and right through the winter season - after dark, of course. The best have sequins, a lurex finish, beaded embellishment, a sexy ankle strap or peep toe (and a platform if you're a platform girl as I am), and the highest heel you can step out of the taxi in. Don’t expect to be able to run a mile in these.
Another point about these shoes is that you need to get your pins in order to show them off properly. Forget the tights and stockings. These shoes require polished and gleaming bare legs with a hint of colour (try a good dose of Clinique’s Sparkle Skin Exfoliating Scrub and Shiseido’s Daily Bronze but start now). Anything else and much of the impact is lost. Pull that one off if you possibly can.
Gold or nude sparkle shoes are the most flattering colour for making your legs look longer in the same way that nude shoes give the illusion of longer pins. And pointed toes can be less ‘dance the night away’ in than round toes’. It rather defeats the object if you have to take your heels off half way through the evening I always feel.
Pretty well every brand is offering glitter shoes at this time of year, and you have everything from designers such as Gucci and Giuseppe Zanotti through Karen Millen and LK Bennett and on to Carvela and Dune – so you can spend a fortune if you want to and not if you don’t, and glitter all night either way.
