Party-Hit Pumps

Saint Laurent Metallic Snake-Effect Leather Pumps, $725

Manolo Blahnik Pachastud PVC Grommet Pump, $755

You can still show some skin during the cold weather with these smashing, see-through pumps.

Christian Louboutin Pigalace Peep-Toe Pump, $795

What looks more lovely than a pair of lacey Louboutins during the holidays? Complete with their signature red sole and back heel, these pumps are a surefire way to make a major party entrance. Of course, if you’re a bit shy about the lacey look, you can always also stick with a pair of black Louboutin classics.

If you’re really looking to make a statement, these metallic gold leather pumps, with a lighting pattern made of black nylon, should do the trick. They’re sexy, stunning and just a little but shocking—which makes for a perfect pair of notice-me-now party shoes.

Beautiful Boots

Valentino Leather Tall Boots with Rockstud Heel, $1,540

Classic, elegant boots are also a great option for holiday parties, and these black Valentino stunners are a bona fide scene-stealer. The gold-toned, rock-stud covered heels add an edge that can’t be missed, and they give these boots a unique style that is both refined and stylishly rough.

Pierre Hardy Ankle Boots, $456

Pierre Hardy’s round toe, solid black booties are made with a lined interior, leather sole and covered heel, so you know you’ll be comfortable all night long. You’ll also be incredibly stylish: Hardy’s simple, yet out-of-the-box ankle boots, adorned with a block of golden hardware, could almost be a work of art.

Givenchy Shark Lock Fold-Over Boot , $1,895

These beautiful calfskin boots feature a shark tooth turn-lock on the wraparound strap. How cool is that? Plus, the pant-leg illusion that’s created by the fold-over shaft makes these boots extra unique. Pair them with a short skirt and tights or wear them over your favorite pair of skinnies.

Brian Atwood Women’s Bomand Croc-Embossed Wedge Boot, $695

Wedge boots are wonderful because they give you height, are comfortable and appropriate for the most festive of holiday parties. These crocodile-embossed, pointed-toe beauties are definite party standouts, as well as soft, tall boots that can be worn for most any occasion.
