When it comes to footwear, don’t hold back the drama.
This party season is the perfect time to channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw and go big on your footwear.
Ladies, we’re not talking about mediocre glitter pumps or cute ribbon details. We’re talking pompous, in-your-face shoes decked with over-the-top embellishments and fitted with outré details.
Now, you must be thinking only maximalists can pull off these crazy designs. Fashion is for everyone so don’t feel left out if you prefer minimalist tailored looks. You too can dive into this trend and keep to your everyday uniform made up of monochromes and neutrals. But instead of your go-to classic pumps, elevate your ensemble to power suit status with these statement soles.
And yes, your shoes will be the talking point at every party.
Leave a Trail of Glitter
Glamour girls, we’re fully aware that a spot of shimmer is much- needed for you to shine in the spotlight. We suggest you level up your glam game and add a spray of neon colours, sequins and bejewelled stones into your shoe repertoire this season. Think Mariah Carey, but way classier.
Return of the Innocence
Classic bows and fancy frills make the prettiest shoes but what we love about these girly decorative details is this season’s fascination with everything oversized. You got the extra memo – so don’t settle for less.
Unleash Your Inner Wild Child
Fur and feathers are an explosive combination in the maximalist’s world. There’s no denying the confidence of a woman bold enough to sashay into a room wearing shoes decked with these decadent details. You go girl!

You love fashion and art, and you want it translated into what you wear. Lucky for you these two elements co-exist superbly and designers have taken full advantage of this chemistry. Case-in-point: A classic looking pump or wedge sandal looks ten times more stunning with the simple twist of a not-so-ordinary heel.
