Trust us, every woman needs a pair of sparkly shoes on her shoe rack. Why? Because a diamond-covered party shoe can instantly elevate a casual outfit - especially as we approach summer and wedding party season. 

 If you're wearing a pair of jeans, a white tee and a blazer, it's a pretty standard outfit, but add a pair of sparkly shoes and you’ve got yourself a party-ready look.

An embellished pair of high heels are great for brides as well. If your gown is fuss-free, you might want a gem or two (or 1000!) on your shoes to put a twinkle in your step - quite literally.

For an embellished pair of heels you’ve got different styles: Cinderella glass slippers, Manolo Blahnik Hangisi style (aka the Carrie Bradshaw shoe), embellished strappy sandals, all over glitter, and rhinestones by the dozen.

Let’s get our glitz on and find some great party heels for the event in your calendar this summer. We’ll try and feature a mix of price points and high, and mid-heel styles.

Manolo Blahnik Hangisi 

Carrie Bradshaw made the blue Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels an iconic shoe, and now the same style is all over the high-street.

We’re not complaining, if you can afford a designer pair of heels, do it! If you can’t, go for a lookalike pair that give off the same vibe for a whole lot less. If you don’t own a pair of these heels, and you can’t bring yourself to spend the £800+ pricetag, the high street is awash with similar styles.

Gimme All The Glitter

We had to include glittery party shoes - especially for any magpies out there who just love a bit of glitz. What's more, the Duchess of Cambridge is even a fan of a glittery shoe - and is regularly hitting red carpets in her Jimmy Choo Romy shoes.

Calling all brides! This ivory glitter slingback shoes will be perfect for the first dance. 

Cinderella Glass Slippers 

Perspex shoes are everywhere right now, and there are a couple of reasons. Shoe designer Amina Muaddi took the world by storm with her designs and they have become instantly recognisable. Mach & Mach shoes are also a big hit with party princesses - the diamanté finishes, the pearl straps and the studded detailing are all instantly recognisable. Both designs are loved by countless celebrities, and thankfully there are plenty of styles on the high street trying to give us the look but for a lot less. 

Oh, and by the way, these Cinderella shoes don’t want you home before midnight - more like midday the following day please.

You shall go to the ball. Rihanna is a big fan of this footwear designer and we can certainly see why. 


The pearl design on the heel is really quite something.
