We believe in the power of shoes. After all, what other wardrobe essential can completely change the overall aesthetic of your outfit? A dress worn with trainers, for example, is instantly given a downtime spin. Well, the same applies for glamorous pairs.

Just imagine what the perfect pair of glittering heels or twinkling flats could do for your favourite, though somewhat tired, little black dress, or a simple jeans and blouse combination. This is why we think, if you invest in anything this party season, it should be a pair of shoes that’ll make your existing wardrobe work harder for all those Christmas parties. And you know what? All of our favourite pairs we’ve found so far all have one thing in common—you’ll find them on the high street.

Of course, there’s no treat quite like a pair of designer shoes but after seeing the beautiful affordable styles on offer, we can’t help feel the high street is leading the fancy footwear charge this season.

As such, from rhinestone detailing and bow motifs to sumptuous velvet and high-shine metallic finishes, we’ve created an edit of the best high street party shoes that look so much more expensive than they actually are. Keep scrolling to see them for yourself…

These look so much more expensive than they actually are. 

A little shine is always going to hit the mark. 

This colour is incredible. 

The floral detail is a playful take on embellishment. 

This pair proves flat styles can still steal the show. 

The delicate bow is so sweet. 

Perfect for trousers or jumpsuits, as you’ll still see a peek of sparkle. 

Because what’s party season without a hearty helping of glitter? 

It’s not just presents that are infinitely improved by bows. 

How good are these?

Shine bright this season. 

The sparkle straps are removable, so you’ll be sure to rewear these long after party season. 

Take your LBD to new heights with these striking shoes. 

Sleek and understated. 

Feathers are an easy way to inject some fun. 

These went straight on my wish list. 

The square toe and slingback style add a very 2023 touch. 

A very festive shade. 

Metallics are always a good idea. 

Embellishments are back on the going-out agenda. 

I always find a block heel adds an extra touch of comfort. 

The square toe and ballet flat style is such a nice twist. 

You had me at velvet. 

The fanciest boots we ever did see.
