When you’re invited to a party, the first thing most women think is, “What am I going to wear?” But many women sink all of their available funds into the right dress or the right blouse and don’t stop to think about the shoes.
The leather or suede pumps that you wear to work are not party shoes. Nothing ruins a pretty party dress like a pair of beat-up basic pumps. Evening shoes add an extra element to a stylish outfit, and when you can find great shoes for less-than-$125, there’s no reason to dance the night away in every day heels.
The second pair is a fairly modern sandal that ties in the back. I think they would look great with skinny trousers, or to jazz up a simple black dress. For extra pop, try a white dress like this textured Dorothy Perkins dress.
Center. The Ivanka Trump pair in the center of the photo are the most versatile, a classic black sandal with a bit of sparkle. If you’d like something less strappy, try this pair of Ann Taylor satin knot heels. I also added two pair of metallic pumps that would work with most cocktail and evening outfits. The pewter pair are my favorite. If you’d like a metallic that’s more leather, less sparkly, try this gold sandal from Badgley Mischka.
Right. Ankle strap sandals add spice to any outfit. These black Zara shoes are chic and, I can tell you from experience, comfortable for walking. I also liked the look of these red Calvin Kleins if you want to add a pop of color. Also, check out these Betsy Johnson Bells sandals with a jewel-encrusted heel and these Nina Earleen shoes in magenta.
