It’s party season and nothing says “I’m ready for a good night” like very fun shoes. Whether you’re in the mood for heels or you’d rather stick to flats, there are plenty of festive styles made for every occasion on your calendar. For the person who loves all things sparkly, check out J.Crew’s glitter boots or Madewell’s sparkly Mary Janes. If you’d rather go for texture, & Other Stories has a plush velvet bootie, while Marni’s vibrant fuchsia slides are both luxe and a little louche. The best part: All of these styles make a big impact, so if you’re feeling lazy, you don’t have to do much else.
