The Fanciest Flat Party Shoes For Women Who Can't Be Bothered With High Heels
Forget what you thought you knew about party shoes - you don't need staggering high heels to make an impression. These fancy women’s footwear alternatives more than step up to the mark...
Fed up of aching feet after a glamorous night out? Us too. But it doesn’t have to be this way! These days there are plenty of other alternatives to traditional taxi heels (as in, so high you need a taxi to get you to the club door) that won’t leave you hobbling home at the end of the night. From dressed up women's ankle boots to chic and modern kitten heels, check out our pick of the top five alternatives to stilettos this party season. Your feet (and Uber driver) will thank you.
Embrace embroidery with these elegant Topshop mules
These embroidered flats are a work of art. The floral design, rich colours and embroidered detailing will put the life into any outfit - and the backless heel means that these loafers can be dressed both up and down. Why not match these bohemian-style mules with an airy long sleeve black midi dress for an evening look with 70s flair, or with blue cropped denim and an oversized white shirt for casual after work drinks.
Outshine the discoball in these metallic leather ankle boots
Looking for an original addition to your party wardrobe? You can’t go wrong with these leather embossed boots, which just so happen to be the perfect combination of two of this season’s biggest trends, futurism and wild western. Pair with a fancy frock to add some space-age Ziggy Stardust attitude.
Go classic with these black margot mules from Clarks
The definition of fancy is not restricted to over the top embellishment and colour. Sometimes, quality and minimalism speak volumes. Case in point: these Margot mules from Clarks. Rich leather linings and a luxurious suede sockliner make these simple mules a must-have for those looking for lasting comfort in an elegant package. Team with a bold shirt and sharply tailored culottes for maximum effect.
Give stilettos the boot in these white stride block heel boots
Newsflash: white boots are in. So why not add them to your party repertoire? Sure they're got a bit of a heel, but these Kurt Geiger white boots will add brightness to your ensemble whilst the wearable yet eye-catching coloured block heel will give you something to talk about whilst you wait at the bar.
Choose these kitten heels for a feminine touch
They’ve had a bit of a bad rep over the years but, in our humble opinion, you can’t go wrong with a kitten heel. A favourite amongst the leading fashion editors and Insta influencers alike, these fabulous velvet embellished slingbacks match perfectly with sleek evening attire.
