Party season is upon us. I know this because its Wednesday afternoon and last night I got home at 6.30am. Well, if you want to be technical about it: this morning. With parties literally running back to back, outfit planning is becoming essential,Ugg Classic Knit Boots, and with the biggest party of the year looming, its time to start getting very serious about both Vitamin C and cute clothing. Taking cues from my hero Anna Dello Russos #7 tip for a fashionable Christmas, focus on the shoes. Generally at Christmas party to spend a lot of time seated on the sofa, Ive picked out some of the best shoes for New Years Eve, for dance floor dwellers and couch surfers alike.
For the dancing queen
When someone says party you say dance. Not only are you always the first on the dance floor, youre also the last to leave it. And its not always the dance floor- hallways, couches, toilet queues- youll dance anywhere so long as your feet have something solid to stamp on. For NYE youre most likely heading some place where Princes 1999 will play when the clock strikes twelve, and by God will you give 80s moves a run for their money. Chances are youre an old hand in heels,Uggs Outlet, but youll need the stamina to welcome sunrise with your best robot. Go for a wedge to keep your calves looking like a ballerinas and the soles of your feet will thank you at around midday on the first of the month. The chunkier the better; its all about balance when youre getting low.
For the Hostess with the Mostest
For NYE youre planning an early morning trip to the market; a day cooking suitably trendy and organic food; and a fragrantly relaxing bath before a select few of your nearest and dearest arrive to a perfectly set table and candle-glow mood lighting. There will be red wine, youll be witty, and everyone will praise your walnut and rocket salad. Your dress will have cost at least a months rent and will probably be the second most elegant thing youll wear in your life (youre thinking the first will be your wedding dress, some day). Your shoes need to be exquisite- bejeweled stilettos that clink against your kitchen tiles as you scurry around the kitchen, a real domestic goddess.
For the bar hopper
Your New Years Eve will consist of bar hopping with your closest BFFs. Youre going to hit the city and pass through every trendy hang out where your extended circle of friends all bartend. If youre in Melbourne youll have your countdown moment at Rooftop, in Sydney you'll probably be fighting to avoid ending up at Flinders once you realise Cricketers has to close at some point. Your style is relaxed, think carrot leg, high waist trousers with a tank top and a statement necklace. Youll probably drink cocktails and at some point meet a man in thick-rimmed glasses with whom you will discuss cinema and the book youre reading. You need your shoes to be super cool but super comfortable in case you cant get a cab from one bar to the next.
For the home body
Youre over New Years Eve. In fact, you cant think of any worse torture than being submitted to the pressures of the party season. So youre going to stay home,Uggs 5225, guilt your boyfriend into doing the same, eat popcorn and make him watch romantic comedies starring Ashton Kutcher. Youll watch the fireworks on TV at midnight, and fall asleep on the couch. For the record, I think youre a complete failure. The only shoes you need now, or ever, are your Ugg boots.
