You need a handy pair of black heels in your Christmas wardrobe to go with every outfit you own.
Let me be a little clearer, you will wear this pair of black heels all party season long IF you don't mind cold feet. You'll be used to the cold by then, I promise. Christmasses in Ireland are quite mild really (eh, if you don't count the Big Freeze). During party season you're willing to put up with a few blue toes, anyway, in the name of festive style.
I found this pair of black heels in Mango and I really love them. They are sandals, but they're so distinctly winter sandals. The black satin bow gives a tuxedo feel to them, and who wears a tuxedo in summer?
They're a step (baddum pish!) above your usual high street shoe, too. Notice the skinny leather look ankle strap and the shiny heel. The combination - with the satin bow - make them look way more high-end than they actually are.
They're the type of shoe that will dress up jeans; wear them with a tuxedo jacket (because, duh) and a cami underneath and you've totally got a Kendall Jenner vibe going on. I would wear them with tuxedo trousers too (ok, I'm obsessed) and a silk shirt. So sophisticated with that little hint of sauce. I hope you still have your glittery skirt from last party season because they would look gorgeous with that, as demonstrated by the Mango model. (And, look, a tuxedo jacket.)
Do you go bare-footed in winter? Would you consider it in the name of style?
