It’s our favourite time of the year again. Well, almost. But mentally we’re already there. Naturally, that means outfit planning. We tend to start with the shoes and work our way up because you know what they say - the shoes maketh the outfit. Below, read about our shoe picks for five upcoming holiday events you’re bound to be attending this year.
Work Christmas party - Kruz Red/ Fuchsia Suede
After what hasn’t been a great year for a lot of people, we’re all looking forward to letting loose this holiday season, especially at the office Christmas party. Read: this is your opportunity to get out of loungewear/activewear or classic black work attire. Pull out all the stops this Christmas and light up the office with the Kruz Red/ Fuchsia Suede heeled sandals. Not only are they red (festive!), they also play into the hugely popular colour blocking trend we’ve been witnessing.
Kids’ end-of-school production - Sporty Tan
The little ones have been hard at work channeling their creative energy towards their end-of-year productions. Comfort is key for the proud parent who wants to look stylish but still be able to keep up with their small humans’ high energy levels. Solution: the Sporty Tan sandals which exude calm, cool, collected vibes (every parents’ dream, right?)
Christmas lunch with the girls - Petti Blush
This one is just good vibes all-round because nothing beats a girls’ day out. You want to look chic (maybe trot out a cute new addition to your wardrobe?) and feel comfortable. Our personal pick is the Petti Blush heeled mule. With its squared toe and funky heel, you’re hitting all the right sartorial notes while making sure you stay nice and comfy and able to fully enjoy the mimosas.
Family holiday celebrations - Lazy Ecru
Whether yours is a warm, laughter-filled gathering or one peppered with side-eyes and fake smiles, there’s no denying that this event is the highlight of the holiday season. Either way, we need you to be serving looks. While we no longer dress up the way we once did for Christmas, we still want it to be a bit special, which is why our pick is the Lazy wedge heel in Ecru.
NYE - Lypper Black
If there’s one night to be going all-out, it’s New Year’s. Pull out the party dresses, sparkly clutches and statement shoes for this fun night. Don’t be shy - you’ve got 364 other days to fall back on your trusty classics, so go for something more experimental tonight. The Lypper Black heeled sandals are Top End’s take on this designer-inspired style and are our pick for ringing in 2022 in style.
