It's My Job to Spot Shoe Trends—This Pretty Style Is Everything for Winter

There’s no need to feel ashamed if the only reason you’re looking forward to party season is for fashion-related reasons. The rest of the calendar year affords us so few excuses to get the sparkle out, that when November turns into December, I for one know I’ll be rummaging through my wardrobe in search for anything that glistens. Though I can keep myself in check for most of the year, when winter rolls around my magpie-like habits come to surface, and I'm drawn only to items that shimmer. And when securing the sparkle is your aim, there are some items that are simply more fun to look for than others. The most exciting of them all for this party season? The search for the perfect pair of sparkly silver heels.

The most joyful addition to any evening outfit—and the perfect antidote to the serious loafers and chunky boots we're used to styling all winter—sparkly silver heels have the unique ability to get your jeans-and-blouse outfit looking dance-floor ready in no time. Whilst they can dress up any casual 'fit with ease, these glittery wonders come into their own when styled with a black dress and equally iridescent accessories.

This year, you ought to get in quick. Silver shoes have been trending since the summer, so their sparkly sisters are destined to sell out quickly everywhere. And celebrities have been adopting silver tones in the place of gold, with some—such as Anne Hathaway, pictured above—going in for a double sprinkling of silver sparkles with both heels and a bag to highlight her sequinned bandeau dress, which is showstopping in its own right.

The impact of sparkly silver shoes was also felt last month during the fashion-show schedule in New York, Milan, London and Paris. Although the dress code is altogether more casual for editors, influencers, stylists and other industry attendees, we did notice multiple looks with added pizzazz via the medium of silver heels. They're a solid partner to denim too, at any time of the year.

And suddenly, as if the retail gods heard my cry, a slew of silvery shoes has arrived for us to shop well ahead of party season. From Aquazzura's shimmering style to Zara's perfect silver mules, read on to shop my edit of the best sparkly silver heels available to buy now.
