Wearing heels to a party seems to have been an unwritten sartorial rule for as long as we can remember, leading to long nights looking for a place to sit down and the inevitable barefoot walk home. If that doesn’t sound like your idea of a great night out, you’re in luck: we styled five different outfits that prove you can also put your best foot forward in a pair of flats this party season. Keep scrolling to discover how to wear your trainers with a suit and boots with mini dresses, so you can look effortlessly cool and kill it on the dancefloor (without killing your feet)…
- Suit and trainers
A velvet suit will definitely make a statement at any event this party season, so you won’t have to worry about it being too casual when paired with some crisp white trainers. We love the look of a blazer buttoned up with nothing worn underneath but you can always add a white crop top just to be on the safe side.
- Sequin skirts and Western boots
Nothing says party girl quite like a fully sequinned mini skirt. We’ve given it that model-off-duty vibe with a white T-shirt and some Western-style boots. Add a leather jacket for extra cool girl points and some glitzy jewellery if that’s not enough sparkle for you yet.
- Organza and snakeskin
Mark our words: organza is going to be everywhere this party season. Keep your look bang on-trend with this long sleeve top paired with some leather flares and a mini bag. Complete the outfit with a pair of snakeskin flats for some added glam minus the pain of strappy stilettos.
- Mini dresses and chunky boots
The easiest way to make flats work for a party is pairing them with your favourite mini dress. We went for a corset-style number worn with tights, chunky boots and a faux fur jacket. Some simple silver hoops are all we’re adding on the jewellery front but a fluffy bag will keep the look totally party-appropriate.
- Jeans and teeny tiny heels
So perhaps we’re slightly cheating here but these pair of kitten mules have such a small heel we’re sure you’ll stay pain free all night! We’ve kept the rest of the look simple with just a touch of glam in form of some gold jewellery and a mini faux fur jacket.
