Here at Who What Wear UK, we’re in full party mode, and, no, that doesn’t mean swigging on champagne at 3 p.m. on a Thursday (sadly). It does, however, mean we’ve spent many hours scouring the shops to make sure we’re up-to-date with all the latest dress drops and party trends. Our latest discovery? Zara is delivering the chicest party shoes right now. We’re talking velvet and rhinestones, pointed-toed kitten heels and plenty of fabulous flats.
Zara is the place to go if you’re looking for a pair of trend-led (read: non-tacky) shoes minus the designer price tag. I spent hours looking at the brand’s impressive offering, analysing every tiny detail. Below, you’ll find the best of the best, broken down by some of the season’s key footwear trends, too. Scroll on to see Zara’s party shoes across boots, heels and flats, adorned with everything from foil to rhinestones to velvet.
