Don't remember the clothes that cascaded down the spring 2018 runways? That's probably because you were too busy looking at the floor.
Let us explain. Every brand from Coach to Victoria Beckham to Dior showed shoes so sparkly — and so unapologetically fabulous — you couldn't possibly look away. Fortunately, you don't have to wait until spring to jump on the sartorial bandwagon. Below, six stylish options you can buy right now.
Dare to Dazzle
"Why settle on one color when you can pick a few?" asked Libertine. The Los Angeles brand turned heads with its array of chaotically colorful footwear.
Perhaps you like the idea of sparkly, multi-colored shoes but aren't ready to take any big sartorial risks. That's where Aldo's stilettos come in. For a pop of color that won't take over your entire outfit, pair these kicks with some boyfriend jeans and a white tucked-in blouse. Best of all, you can snag them for under $100.
Your personality may not scream "unapologetically feminine," but there are plenty of styles that match your tomboy aesthetic.
If Coach's bejeweled boots are too sparkly for you, try this pair from ZARA.
The boots boast a subtle dusting of shimmer, making them on trend without being flashy. Pair these sparkly show-stoppers with a fitted T-shirt, leather jacket, and some rolled-up jeans. Want to show a little leg? They'll look great with some tights and a pleated skirt.
Consider Chloé's suede kicks the perfect cross between sandals and boots. The gaping cut-outs resemble sandals, but unlike the sparkling ones shown at Anna Sui
, you can wear them year-round. These heels are ready to make a statement, so pair them with your LBD for your next girl's night out.
Boots with Bling
Heeled booties have been en vogue for seasons — and they're not going away anytime soon. You might have printed, suede and leather booties, but do you have ones doused in glitter? Enter Ash's effervescent option. Not only can you dress them up and down, but they're almost identical to the ones Marcel Ostertag and Tamaris schemed up for spring.
Keep It Classic
Trends come and go, but a pair of elegant, shimmery heels will never go out of style. The wardrobe staple was spotted at some of the season's biggest shows, including Victoria Beckham
and Oscar de la Renta. Where to wear these pumps, you ask? The sky's the limit. You can pair them with baggy jeans, your LBD or something just as dazzling on New Year's Eve. Jimmy Choo's pumps aren't exactly available for chump change, but if you have a penchant for sparkle, they're well worth the investment.
