Holiday Heels 101: Party Pumps to Suit Your Style


We’re all about pumps with personality right now—heels with that extra special oomph that allows them to call the style shots this holiday season. And when you have a pair of heels with something to say, it’s only appropriate to arrange your ensemble around them. When you fashion your outfit with your shoes as the reference point, the key to style success is sticking to the same aesthetic from head to toe. 

For the stylista who wants to stand out at the holiday bash, a pair of badass booties will take her fashion to a fierce new level. Touch of Nina's edgy faux-suede Farrah booties are enhanced with a festive row of radiant rhinestones, a trendy peep toe, and a killer heel that demands attention. Keep the offbeat party mojo strong with a bold jumpsuit and statement-making accessories.

If your party style flirts with femininity instead, a pair of classic satin sandals is more your speed. Nina Fineen heels are detailed with a touch of glitter and a beautiful bow, with slender traps around the ankle to elongate the legs. A short dress will play with proportions and make you look beautiful. For bonus ladylike appeal, showcase a few haute holiday details, such as lace, bows, and seasonal shades of red and gold.

For the fanciest fete on your list this season, don your most glamorous garb styled around the trendy Zigi Soho Tariff heels. The sparkling ankle-strap stilettos are a red-carpet-worthy confection. Allow them to inspire the rest of your elegant ensemble; glitz and glamour have never looked better.
