Throwing or attending any cocktail parties this season? Not only are fancy soirees a fabulous excuse to dress up; they’re also yet another reason why we love summer. The long nights and gentle temperatures are conducive to throwing the perfect park, deck or patio party that won’t leave you shivering in your cocktail dress. There are just a few key secrets to keep in mind when finding the perfect summer cocktail party shoe. First, keep the shoe appropriate for both the indoors and outdoors. This may mean finding a slightly wider heel than usual in the event of outdoor terrain. Second, keep shoes comfortable and protective. And finally, don’t sacrifice your upscale style, because with our shoes, there’s no need!
Here are a few shoes that fit all of our summer cocktail criteria and more:
The Dolley High Heel Shoe: This dazzling shoe is chic and extraordinary enough to carry you straight through any cocktail party, but the thick heel and protective leather means you won’t find yourself wobbling on grassy terrain or rough pavement. The Dolley High Heel comes in black or tan, which can pair well with almost any dress; or vibrant teal, which will give your little black dress some extra “pop.”
Prefer an even more stable evening choice? Try the Eve Flat Sandal in gold. It’s comfortable enough to keep you dancing all night, but the sparkling details add just the right amount of glamor!
Finally, if you’re feeling sweet and feminine, look no farther than the adorable Lem Flat Shoe. This darling little ballet-inspired flat will make you feel like a princess at a ball, no dance lessons needed. Rock some royal flair with lush purple, or choose the black variety for ultimate versatility.
No matter your choice, you’re sure to dazzle with the best of them with our evening shoes!
