Party season is getting closer, and our first item when planning a look is statement shoes. Because if you can't wear a pair of taxi shoes (as we like to call them) at this time of year, when can you? From Mulberry's bejewelled heels to Balenciaga's cult-status boots, 2018's party shoes certainly don't disappoint.
If you're looking to revamp last year's LBD or dress up fail-safe jeans and a silk camisole, then we've found dreamy party shoes for every budget. As ever, Aquazzura has designed some of the most beautiful shoes in the world, but River Island and Zara are also making us want to get out our blister bandages and wear nothing but flamboyant heels until the year is out.
Our tip? Add 10-denier tights and see how much longer you'll last. Not a stiletto kind of girl? Don't worry, as we've found this season's standout flats, too. Scroll through the gallery below to swoon over our expert edit of the best party shoes around.
Pick your jaw up off the floor, and let's get to choosing a dress to go with your new party shoes.
