The holiday season has arrived, and I'm already thinking about all of the cool shoe trends that are on the horizon. There are a number of trends this season that are majorly festive which I personally can't wait to slip into, even if that means getting dressed up in a pair of holiday party shoes in my living room.

No matter which of these shoe trends you choose to wear, the beauty of them is that they all look equally good with jeans or a fancy dress. Thanks to that versatility, there's no doubt in my mind that you'll wear the holiday party shoes highlighted below well beyond this season. (Yes, even the new wave of crystal shoes are very wearable.)

Ready to tap into the holiday shoe trends that are bubbling up right now? Below, shop the pretty shoes we can't stop staring at.

Looking to add a dose of color into your wardrobe? You'll definitely want to look for a pair of satin fuchsia shoes. The fun shade is trending big right now and instantly jazzes up any outfit.


Holiday party shoes: kitten heels

If you're looking for shoes that you can actually wear for hours, kitten heels are a solid bet. With a low heel, this silhouette is as comfortable as it is chic.

Holiday party shoes: sparkly



Not to pick favorites, but this season's sparkly heels are one of the trends I can't stop thinking about. Especially eyecatching are these stunning heels from Mach & Mach.


Holiday party shoes: knife heels

Dubbed 'knife' heels for their sharply pointed toes, this unique shoe shape is starting to pop up everywhere. Consider these the modern take on a classic pump.


Holiday party shoes: animal prints

While animal prints may not seem like the most obvious choice for a holiday shoe, what I love about them is how unexpected they are. Add them to a neutral look and your outfit instantly pops.
