    The Best Party Wear Trends to Keep Your Eye on This Autumn/Winter

    It’s kind of sad to think that the summer is coming to an end. The temperatures will soon start to drop and the nights will draw in quicker. But while the shorts and summer dresses get packed away, the little black dress and heels come out as we welcome party season!
     
    Most retailers have already started to stock party shoes, dresses and accessories and you’ll find plenty of choice in a range of styles.
     
    If you’re as excited as I am, check out all my favourite trends ahead of the season…

    Something sparkly

    As you’d expect, there will be plenty of sparkles this winter. Shimmering gold and silver dresses are everywhere. They are all styled differently but are all eye-wateringly shiny. Naturally, it is not a look that will appeal to everyone, but an awful lot of us will give these exciting fabrics a go.
     

    Shiny shoes

    Naturally, if you have a glittery dress you need a pair of shiny shoes to go with them. Dressy patent leather court shoes in gold or silver are everywhere. Diamante open-toed shoes are also widely available. If you are not keen on shiny footwear, do not worry because velvet will also be a head-turner at parties too across the Christmas period.

    For the ultimate bang, look for a pair of Disco ball boots. Versions of these crazy glittering knee-length boots have been cropping up on catwalks, across the world, over the past few weeks. It’s a trend that’s brave, but it’s also bold and beautiful.

    Little black dresses with a twist

    As ever, the little black dress is going to be a party favourite. Highly tailored, mid-length or long dresses are set to be big this year, with the possibility that velvet will start to make a bit of a comeback. This comfortable, flexible fabric is fantastic for dance Divas. They really enjoy the freedom of movement that velvet offers.

    Tweed anyone?

    One of the oddest trends is the incorporation of what is normally considered staid fabrics into party dresses. Stella McCartney has led the way in showing how combining different traditional tweeds and tartans to create striking dresses that could turn heads at the office party. It is too early to say if this interesting design idea will be taken up by High Street retailers, though. If you see one, try it on. It is a look that has the potential to work for all body types and one that will certainly turn heads.

    Party trousers

    If dresses are not your favourite option for a party, do not worry. Most fashion designers have opted to include trousers in their partywear ranges this year. A pair of baggy-legged black trousers will look great paired with a wide belt and a shiny fitted top. The best thing about this party outfit is that you can get away with wearing black baseball boots. So, you can dance all night without worrying about waking up with feet that are covered in blisters.

    Picking your perfect party outfit

    As you can see, you really are spoilt for choice. The designers have come up with something for everyone. However, if you would like a bit more guidance about buying an outfit for a party, you can find it here.

    The Perfect Fit: Shoe Style & Stumbles

    shoes, style, fashion

    Wearing a pair of shoes that are a poor fit – is there any feeling more irritating in the world?

    Of course, there probably are more severe problems to consider. But in the moment, as your shoes chafe against your skin and you can feel the blisters beginning to pop up, it feels like the end of the world. The most aggravating part of it is that any shoe can do this to you. It could be the new pair that you thought you wore in, but clearly didn’t quite manage. Or it could be an old, trusty pair that you were sure would treat you right, that has now gone over to the dark side and decided to wreck your day.There is, seemingly, no way to avoid an ill-fitting shoe situation.

    As TopShoeReviews.com demonstrates, there’s plenty of different kinds of shoes in the world – and every one of them has the potential to cause pain and suffering. There’s no ‘safe’ pair of shoes; you can find comfortable stilettos but then try a pair of running shoes that feel like torture.

    So given the widespread issue of shoes that don’t fit and the problems they cause, what can you do about it? Surrender your comfort for the sake of style and achieving a flawless look? Change your feet? Or – perhaps wisest of all – pick up a few hacks to get the perfect fit every time?

    Wearing Them In – Properly

    You’re keen to wear your new pair of shoes. You wear them around the house for awhile and figure it’s fine. They’re done. They’re ready for their debut.

    They’re not.

    Wearing shoes in is one of the most vital components to getting a fit that works for you. Wear them indoors for at least two days. Their first outing into the real world should be short and take a safe pair of shoes along with you in case you need to change.

    Adapt Your Way To Success 

    There are a few adaptations the average shoe can go through to make it fit better. Everyone has experienced that one pair of shoes where your normal size is a touch too big, but the size down is too small. It’s better to try and modify the too-large pair than make a smaller pair stretch.

    Heel guards, for example, are hidden from view but can improve a fit that’s just a smidge too tight.

    Gel insoles – which lie directly beneath the ball of the foot – can make high heels far more bearable.

    If you’re really struggling with the fit, then full insoles could be the best answer.

    Guard Your Skin 

    If you’re going to be on your feet for any length of time, then protect your skin beforehand. Use blister shields before you get blisters; prevention is almost always better than the cure.

    There’s also a hack, as mentioned on LifeHacker.com, to try. If you’re wearing your shoes with bare feet, some women swear by a light layer of deodorant applied to their soles. This helps with grip if your feet are prone to sweating, thus reducing the risk of friction that could cause sores and blisters. It’s worth a try, at least!

    Tips for Walking in Heels

    We all love to look our best and by wearing heels it spruces up our entire outfit, doesn’t matter how simple our dressing is. I am a lover of shoes especially stiletto heel, flats, vintage shoes and sneakers. My current collection is growing and I don’t get to wear them all the time.

    While I don’t wear a heeled shoe exclusively, I do wear them on a regular basis like going to church, work, functions etc. I love to stock up on shoes especially when shopping online.
