Crazy, sexy holiday shoes under $35
Twinkle, twinkle little … toes. This winter, glittery pumps are majorly in style. (Who knew Dorothy and her red sparkly shoes would become such trendsetters?)
Sure, four-inch heels combined with glitter may not be exactly office-appropriate or practical unless you work in Oz. So, consider an affordable pair to keep in your closet for special occasions. They’ll easily add personality to a holiday party dress or give a sexy edge to your date-night outfit. We love the glamorous illusion that sparkly stilettos give to a more simple jeans-and-blouse combination. A delightful and unexpected side effect: High heels have a slimming superpower.
We’ve found some crazy and sexy pairs that are all under $35. (That’s just $17 a shoe if you needed a little economic peer pressure). To save even more, check out ShopAtHome.com for coupons and cash-back offers.
A twist on the peep-toe …
The Viveca blingy heel made by Mossimo and sold at Target rounds out the toe with a shimmery metallic accent. The shoe comes in emerald green (perfect for Christmas), fuchsia (more unconventional, but still a perfect color for Christmas) and navy. They’ll add a pop of color and shine to a dress or look great with a dark-rinse pair of jeans. Price: $32.99
Shoes that look like candy …
These glittered peep toes from Forever 21 will give you an extra five inches of height. The shoe comes in a blush shade with a wrap-around ankle strap and opalescent glitter surrounding the peep toe. These look like they’re made out of fairy dust and sprinkles. Try pairing them with an understated simple dress and little jewelry. (Think small studded earrings and a sophisticated watch to balance out the party that these shoes are packing). Price: $32.80
All-over glitter …
Payless shoppers are giving rave online reviews to these Kosmic platform pumps that come in silver or gold — as well as solid black, red or tan. They feature a round toe and five inch stiletto heel. Price: $24.99
If you need some trainer heels …
When it comes to wearing heels, you definitely want to know your comfort level. Too high and you’ll feel like you’re clopping around like a Clydesdale horse. Subtle heels can still be sexy. Here’s a sleek black patent 2-inch heel from Aldo Shoes. Price: $28. (Marked down from $70).
