Dolce & Gabbana silver sequin high heels, £575
The style of these shoes (stiletto heel, pointed toe, evening-appropriate upper, jewel embellishment) is very similar to yesterday’s Casadei Blade pumps, but honestly, if this is going to be a trend for autumn/winter 2015, you’re not going to be hearing any complaints about it from me!
Even if you’re not quite ready to dip your toe into the autumn/winter boots just yet, at least the evening shoes are appropriate all year round, as long as you have the right occasion for them. I mean, I’m sure D&G were thinking of the usual round of Christmas parties when they designed these (Or actually, maybe not: they ARE a luxury brand, after all, so maybe they were just thinking of the kind of people who always have glossy parties to attend, regardless of the season. How the other half lives, huh?), but there’s no reason you should feel you have to wait for Christmas to wear these. Which is good, because who on earth has the patience to buy shoes -or anything, really – and then wait months to actually wear them? Not me, and I’m guessing not you, either.
Anyway, these have a silver sequinned upper, topped off with another jewelled brooch. I know we see this kind of thing done over and over again, but it’s one of those “not broke/don’t fix it” kinda things. It’s also one of those looks that just always seems to work, which is probably why it remains so popular, year after year. These are the kind of party shoes you could easily end up owning for years, and then eventually passing down to your daughter – assuming that a) you have one and b) you keep the shoes in a good enough condition, obviously. And even if neither of those points are true, well, at least you’ll get to have a lot of fun wearing them.
