6 Show-Stopping Shoes For Your NYE Bash
Posted on December 23 2022
Irrespective of the ‘whos’ and ‘wheres’ that will inevitably vary from year to year, the New Year’s Eve jamboree is always a date that’s ringed in red in the Zoo Fashions social calendar. From a fashion perspective, it’s the perfect opportunity to really go hell for leather with our wardrobes and let loose in a collective celebration of the unbridled self-expression that our beloved industry engenders.
This time around, we’re turning our attention to our footwear; in particular, the party-ready styles that possess all the pizzazz to really set your NYE festivities alight.
Take a look at our shortlist of the must-have footwear styles to step into 2023 with…
Christian Louboutin No Penny Mini-Croc Brown Loafers
Christian Louboutin’s No Penny Mini-Croc Brown Loafers are a perfect example of the thing that the famous Maison does the best: taking classic, beloved footwear silhouettes and making them uniquely and unmistakably Louboutin. The tasteful application of fabric, texture and colour brings an exciting new dimension to a celebrated classic, all whilst retaining the core essence of what makes it such a timeless style in the first place. Mr Louboutin’s latest loafer is dripping with flair, character and personality and is most definitely one of the hottest-ticket styles on our holiday season wishlist…
Christian Louboutin Navy Spooky Flat Jacquard Gaufrette Black Loafers
We’ll make no apologies for doubling down on our assertion that Christian Louboutin is simply the gold standard for contemporary luxury footwear, particularly when it comes to the festive period (traditionally a time of year in which we like to advocate for a bit of peacocking!). And make no mistake, Christian Louboutin’s Navy Spooky Jacquard Gaufrette Black Loafer certainly knows how to strut its stuff with its iconic spike toe box and sultry, textured jacquard body. And yet there’s an unmistakable air of refined elegance that grounds it and steers it away from the realms of gaudiness and over-excess. It strikes that perfect balance in a way that few labels can do with such confidence as Christian Louboutin.
Valentino Garavani Brown VLogo Chain Loafers
Starting to notice a theme developing? That’s right, it’s another luxury loafer! This time from the shelves of Maison Valentino. We’ll always be huge fans of a good old pair of loafers like these VLogo Chain Loafers, which bring inimitable style and class to the table with a chic, brass V logo trinket, all while sporting a sleek and unobtrusive design that’s typical of this timeless silhouette. It’s a design that lends itself very well to a multitude of styling options, so you’ll have no problem finding the perfect outfit to match this New Year’s Eve.
Christian Louboutin Louis Junior Spikes Techno CL Red Trainers
Changing track ever so slightly, we’re moving down the dress code scale with our next featured entry. If formal footwear isn’t quite your bag when it comes to festive soirées, Christian Louboutin’s Louis Junior Spikes Techno CL Red Trainers might just be the ticket for you. Bold, bright and brilliant is the name of the game here with a deliciously flamboyant design that clearly has no issue with stealing some of the spotlight. And you should feel no shame in wanting the same for yourself, even for just one moment in the year! For our money, the execution is still handled extremely tastefully, as is typical of any design from the house of Louboutin.
Saint Laurent Brown Suede Wyatt Chelsea Boots
A good pair of Chelsea boots is always advisable to have on hand in any occasionwear rotation, if anything just to provide a bit of variation and a workable alternative to your dress shoes. Well, this featured pair of Suede Wyatt Chelsea Boots from Saint Laurent is much more than just an alternative, practically begging to be the shoe of choice for your NYE get-up, with an irresistible suede leather body and elegant profile that brings a certain sharpness to any outfit ensemble. It’s the quintessential shoe for the quintessential Saint Laurent look too, matching perfectly with a pair of skinny jeans and a flowy silk shirt from the same label’s diverse catalogue.
Saint Laurent Marceau Black Leather Monk Strap Shoes
We’ve gone for another classy silhouette from Saint Laurent to round out our list, this time coming in the shape of their Marceau Black Leather Monk Strap Shoes. Being one of the more sophisticated items on our list, we’ve pretty much come full circle in terms of formality, reasserting our opinion that formal shoes can be just as appropriate for festivities and functions as they are for the workplace and office environments. Effortlessly suave and debonair in appearance (as you’ve surely come to expect from Saint Laurent), these monk strap shoes will really rock with a sharp pair of cropped trousers and a statement blazer to complete the look.
