The season of merrymaking is finally here! It’s time to select your most dazzling outfits for upcoming holiday festivities. If you’re planning on adorning yourself in a brightly-shining dress or ensemble for your next party, make sure your feet get the fab treatment, too! Slip on your favorite glam pumps and you’ll be walking in a winter wonderland no matter where you go.
So, where are you headed this holiday season?
All that Glitters (top left): The fierce pointed toe and ultra-high heel of the Colette from Antonio Melani ensure you’ll stand out at any party. Classic black gets a festive update with a sprinkling of glitter.
Paint the Town Red (top center): Studs and rhinestones make the Naomi from Gianni Bini an eye-catching stunner. Leopard-print lining has you walking on the wild side while a skid-resistant sole lets you traverse the town with confidence.
Under the Mistletoe (top right): A half-inch platform and a flirty peep-toe make the York from MICHAEL Michael Kors a sexy must-have for date night. Paint your toenails a rich red for a dramatic contrast against the shimmery silver.
A Girl’s Best Friend (bottom left): Looking for something pretty and professional for upcoming office merriment? The Diamond from J. Renee features illusion vinyl and sparkling rhinestones for a prismatic pop.
Holiday Staple (bottom right): Comfortable, chic, and striking, the Vanessah from Gianni Bini has it all. A metal-plated ankle strap provides the shine of the season while the suede upper adds a luxe touch.
No matter your favorite style of pump — be it pointed-toe, round-toe, platform, low-heel, or high-heel — we have something for you!

We’re being whisked into winter! With a flurry of snow (or a torrent of rain, depending where you live), the chilliest season has arrived. It’s the perfect time to embrace the warmth of the statement-making tall boot.
My favorite thing about tall boots: they’re crazy easy to dress up or down. I love wearing tall-shaft boots with everything from my favorite skinnies to a fit-and-flare dress and tights. Both of these looks are on-trend and can utilize the same pair of boots for a wide range of vibes. Translation: more fashion, less fuss (and bucks)!
Check out the most-loved styles of the season!
- Naturalizer Jersey Riding Boots. Riding boots have been a sizzling trend — I’ve been seeing them all over our office, typically paired with skinny pants and airy, relaxed-fitting blouses.
- Steve Madden Craave Boots. I’m totally “craaving” the effortless style of these slouchy boots. A buckle detail adds a touch of textural interest against soft leather.
- Born Sage Vintage Boots. As a lover of all things vintage, these boots are definitely on my wish list. The uneven topline and covered buttons make a unique statement.
- Gianni Bini Collin Back-Zipper Boots. The still-hot stud trend continues with an added zipper detail for eye-catching edge. Reviewers have been raving about their unbelievable comfort.
- Arturo Chiang Fionia Riding Boots. Our own Kaileigh W. has been spotted sporting these — if Santa wasn’t watching, I’d steal them for myself! I’m in love with the adventurous style of the harness details.
- Steve Madden Lynet Boots. I’ve seen this boot everywhere — from the office to the street, these bold beauties have been an insanely popular choice by footwear fashionistas this season.
- MICHAEL Michael Kors Stockard Boots. Flaunt your love for MK — and your simple sophistication — with these classic boots. They look amazing whether you’re at your desk or on a date.
- Vince Camuto Bocca Boots. Luxe leather is always a wise choice — it’s classic, versatile, and oh-so-chic. A bold buckle commands the eye.

Comfortable yet slimming, sporty yet sexy — the wedge sneaker is one of those ingenious designs that makes you wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” But while the concept is simple, styling the hybrid shoe can prove to be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have some easy tips for creating both casual and eye-catching looks.
If you’re going for a laid-back look with a little lift, sporty styling is the place to start. Think skinny jeans (in dark denim or black) paired with updated sweatshirts and slouchy graphic tees. Throw in delicate jewelry and a structured bag to hint at your femininity.
Shop the Look: Steve Madden Hilight Wedge Sneakers, Dogeared Bow Stud Earrings & Gianni Bini Tessa Satchel
For a look that’s more unexpected, seek out girly silhouettes that contrast your sneaker’s informal vibe. We love fit-and-flare or bodycon dresses, full skirts and tailored rompers. Check out our favorite duos below.

Hot off the runways this season, black-and-white looks are fun to wear and easy to pull off. Whether worn as a head-to-toe ensemble or as a statement piece, these styles are flattering and on-trend.
We love this cleverly blocked Gianni Bini Polki ponte skirt set for its figure-narrowing panels and edgy feel, perfect with heels for a dinner date or with a cropped jacket and boots for a concert. The partial chain handles and contrast stitching of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Colorblock Chelsea tote and the Juicy Couture Oversized Animal-Print Sunglasses complete the look with a taste of the wild side.
Take black-and-white in a sweeter direction with the classic style and crisp tailoring of the Gianni Bini Fallon collared fit-and-flare dress. The clean lines of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Messenger Bag accentuate the simple look. Fresh with polka-dot-detailed frames, the kate spade new york Brenna polarized cateye sunglasses make an adorable finishing touch.

Peep-toe booties hold the key to our stylish hearts: season-to-season versatility! Start rocking this chic silhouette now. When the mercury drops, swap out (or add) a few staples for year-round wear.
Now: For summer, shimmering studs reflect both the sun’s rays and your edgy style. Pair with a simple LBD, red lipstick and a colorful bangle for an easy day-to-play look.
Later: Just add a pair of tights and a textural-knit cardigan for chillier days. Throw on an infinity scarf with graphic interest to finish the stud-infused look.
Now: A little bit Western and completely playful, fringe booties are a hit with denim shorts and blousy tops. Don’t forget your favorite sunnies on the way out the door.
Later: Fringe also pairs perfectly with your favorite skinny jeans. Layer a blazer over a lace top for a look that balances structure and fun.
Now: Leave it to MICHAEL Michael Kors to create an eye-catching sandal/bootie hybrid. Try them at the office with a simple knit top and peplum pencil skirt. Grab a structured leather satchel to store all your daily essentials.
Later: Maxi dresses are another style favorite you can wear all year. Go for one with an illusion skirt to show off your statement kicks. And always be fashionably on time with a rose gold watch.

And they’re off! Those three little words ignite the “Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” — the Kentucky Derby. Along with the thunder of hooves is the race to be fashionable. If you’re invited to a watch party this weekend, there’s probably mention of a dress code. Think fun and festive without feeling the need to look terribly formal. In many cases, what you need is already in your closet. We’ll help you put it all together.
For the gentlemen:
Might we recommend a mixture of formal and casual. Try an oxford shirt, patchwork shorts and a stylish straw fedora for that preppy look.
For the ladies:
Almost as famous as the derby itself is the circus of big, over-the-top women’s hats. If you don’t have a wild hat to cap off your wardrobe, no problem. You can stand out in other ways. Start by donning this stunning statement necklace or slipping into these charming espadrille wedges. The mixed-media top and skinny cropped jeans create a simple but elegant style foundation.
If you’re hosting a watch party, you’ll likely be serving most beverages from informal cups and glasses. But should a guest ask to sample some of your finest bourbon or other favored libation, enhance his or her tasting experience with this handsome whiskey set or set of highball glasses.
