Party-Ready Shoes to Kick your ‘LBD’ Up a Notch for New Year’s

If you  need a killer pair of shoes to kick your little black dress (LBD) up a notch this New Year’s Eve, take a gander at these shoes; they’re guaranteed to up the style quotient of any outfit you throw on, and keep you dancing until the wee hours of the morning.

Add a splash of color to your look with these gorgeous fuschia pumps from Steve Madden. The 1″ platform makes these 5″ heels infinitely more comfortable, and will ensure your feet are the center of attention all night long. Keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum, and let these killer kicks be the highlight of your New Year’s Eve outfit.

For a shoe that’s a little more low-key, but no less stylish, these black satin pumps from Nina Evelixa are just the thing. The peep-toe pump lends an elegant vibe to your New Year’s Eve ensemble, and the ribbon on the toe adds a touch of playfulness. Plus, black-on-black is always a great combination! To break up the monotone look, don a jeweled cocktail ring to add a bit of color to your LBD look.

($84.85, Shoebuy.com)

 

Ring in the new year with a flashy pair of gold pumps, like these from Chinese Laundry. These modest pumps are the perfect pair of heels to dance the night away in, and the gorgeous gold color will look lovely with your LBD. Just make sure to clean up your pedicure beforehand, because these peep-toe heels will be showing it off!

($22.99, ShoeMetro.com)

 

 

If sky-high pumps aren’t your style, you can still rock a killer pair of shoes with a much more comfortable height, such as these leopard print slingbacks. With a modest 2.5″ heel and an all-over leopard print with a red interior, these gorgeous shoes will jazz up your LBD just as much as a 5″ stiletto – without the pain! Plus, the price can’t be beat.

($20.80, Forever21)

 

For the woman who loves mile-high heels with an edgy twist, these gorgeous pumps from Betsey Johnson are just the thing to take your LBD from drab to fab in a heartbeat. The black and red satin leopard print, coupled with edgy rhinestone detailing at the toe, make these the perfect shoes to dance the night away in and celebrate the New Year in style.

5 Fall Dresses You’ll Love

This season, dresses have become a fall wardrobe staple, and they are infinitely more wearable, comfortable and chic than ever before. Here are five fall dresses you’ll fall in love with!

The Little Black Dress

Every woman needs a little black dress in her closet, and this simple sheath is figure flattering and visually slimming because of the black inset at the waist. Because it’s such a simple dress, you can jazz it up any way you like with sparkly earrings, a killer pair of heels and a cocktail ring that makes a statement. (Also available in 3 additional colors.)

($19.99, Chadwicks.com)

 

 

The Retro Dress

Sweet as can be yet oh-so-wearable, this retro style strawberry print dress is perfect to jazz up a dreary season. Satin buttons march up the front of this fanciful frock, while the flattering princess seaming in the bust, girlie bow adornments and a sash complete the look. Don a pair of patent heels and playful earrings and you’ll turn heads wherever you go.

($89.99, ModCloth)

 

 

The Wrap Dress

There is no silhouette more flattering to every woman than the wrap dress, and this gorgeous one from Dillard’s features a rich jewel-tone olive color that’s perfect for fall. The silky jersey fabric gently skims your body for an all-over slimming effect, too! Worn alone or with a cardigan, a killer pair of heels and a statement necklace, this dress will take you from work to weekend in a flash.

($98, Dillards)

 

 

The Lace Dress

I mentioned in an earlier post how lace is super trendy for fall; what better way to rock a trend than with this gorgeous red lace dress? The simple sheath silhouette is super figure flattering, and the dress is fully lined to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. Worn day or night, simply don a pair of stiletto heels and you’re ready for wherever the day takes you!

($168, French Connection)

 

 

The Two Tone Dress

Color blocking is hot for fall, and I love the simple combination of black and white on this two-tone dress. The round neckline, stretchy knit material and body skimming silhouette combine to create the perfect “every day dress” you turn to when you have nothing else to wear. Jazz it up with a few simple accessories and a pair of platform pumps for the perfect look.

Little Black Dress – Three Ways!

Earlier this week I featured three amazing LBDs (Little Black Dresses) as options for holiday attire… The best part about a LBD is that ANYTHING goes with them! They are a blank slate, so to say, for accessorizing! Here I chose another LBD, one that I thought can fit any body type and that is quite modest, but still very appealing. If you have a dress like this in your closet, you know that you can pull it out for anything! If you don’t have one – you should!

Norma Kamali Everlast – D4314 (Black) – Apparel



I have featured three different ways to wear the dress for the holiday season… all including a jacket, a handbag and a shoe. Keep in mind, these are just for inspiration! Find what you have in your closet or borrow great pieces from friends. Another note is that fur is SO big these days and vintage is really easy to find. Try your local resale stores or ebay for inexpensive options!
