Anyone who knows me well knows that I take full advantage of holiday party dressing, maintaining my “more is more” motto year after year. No matter the dress code an invitation may advise, I always say, “Bring on the high heels, embellished dresses, and seasonal color palettes.”
This year, the star of all my favorite holiday looks is a party shoe because it’s the one accessory with the ability to turn even the simplest LBD or pair of jeans into a statement look. But I’m not talking about just any old party shoes. My must-have for the season are the Valentino Garavani Rockstud heels. The style first appeared on the runway over a decade ago and has since become iconic in the fashion world thanks to its stud details, which add an edgy touch to an otherwise sleek leather footwear. The punk-meets-glamour design feels festive for the holiday season, as evidenced below, but I’ll be wearing these on nights out all year long.
