Best party heels for women 2022: Shoes to dance the night away

Feathers! Sparkles! Rhinestones! It’s time to celebrate party season by investing in a new pair of heels that will bring you, and your outfits, some much needed joie de vivre over the next few months.

Having spent nearly three years switching between trainers, Birkenstocks, and perhaps even the occasional Croc, it’s time to celebrate our festive freedom with a pair of heels - just make sure you have your blister plasters at the ready to help your feet through the readjustment.

Paired with an LBD, the classic nice-top-and-jeans combo, or even a masculine boxy suit, a great pair of shoes are the quickest and most effective way to revamp a look to be Christmas party-ready in an instant.

If you’re not a sky high stiletto kind of girl, fear not, because kitten heels are the happy middle ground that’s in this year, leaving you feeling adequately zhuzhy without the need to whip them off before the end of the night.

Whether you’re treating yourself to the pair of Jimmy Choos that you’ve always wanted, would rather a standout pair from high street hero River Island, or want something different from an independent brand like Aeyde, the good news is that it’s a necessity that comes around year after year, so whatever you choose, they’re guaranteed an annual outing.

So, keep scrolling to find your new favourite pair of shoes that will last you until the New Year and beyond.
