From Aquazzura to Jimmy Choo, here are the sparkly party shoes to see you through to 2022…

When it comes to dressing for your end of year social calendar, the pressure to adhere to party season style codes can feel a lot. But instead of replacing your signature all black look with swathes of sequins and sparkles, there's an alternative way to nod to the party season while still feeling 'you': a glitzy pair of party shoes.


Some fun footwear – be that some diamanté-emblazoned mules or a neon-hued pair of sky highs – are a quick way to spin your outfit for the season. Our advice? Go simple up top – either with an LBD or leather trousers and strappy top – and jazz it up with your footwear, opting for a brightly coloured, crystal-adorned pair of heels.

Luckily, this year’s offering is packed with some suitably fun options, from a Carrie Bradshaw-worthy bow-embellished Jimmy Choo pair and the electric purple Gianvito Rossi PVC mules of dreams...
