ffering all of the pleasure with none of the pain, the flat-soled party shoe is joyfully versatile. Vivacious styles add a touch of glamour to daytime festivities and instantly transform an otherwise low-key outfit, as well as being the perfect shoe for dancing the night away.
Among this season’s fancy flats are Jimmy Choo’s crystal-covered creations, Miu Miu’s glittering ballerinas, Le Monde Beryl's tactile velvet slippers and Aquazurra’s shearling loafers, playfully topped with fluffy pom-poms. Chanel's classic pumps have had a fittingly glitzy makeover for the festive season, while JW Anderson's chunky chain loafers remain a bestselling cult buy. Mach & Mach's fun-loving, bow-topped designs have been nothing short of an internet sensation this year, encrusted with sparkling crystals and faux pearls. Founded by sisters Nino and Gvantsa Macharashvili, the brand's success shows no sign of slowing down and the duo is set to foray into womenswear in 2022.
So while social plans remain uncertain, keep your spirits high by sliding into a pair of fabulously outlandish party flats, which will look as good at your nearest soirée as they will with a set of luxe pyjamas in your living room.
