So, good news for your feet. Fancy flats are having their moment in the spotlight – and on the dancefloor – this party season. Heels devotee? Don’t be deceived by the moniker, this new breed of mules, ballerinas and loafers may lack stature, but they’ll take your look to new heights…
The Badass Ballerina
The ballet shoe will always be on pointe but the current take on the ladylike classic is less pure, more punk. Topping our wish list? Miu Miu’s pink fuzzy buckled beauties. When it comes to footwear to dance in, too much is never enough.

The Furry 2-strap Sandal
Winter blues? We prescribe Nicholas Kirkwood’s furry sandals. With their pearl-encrusted heel and suede finish, they’re the luxe equivalent of your cosiest slippers. And you can wear them in public…

The Metallic Loafer
The original and the best. There’s a reason Gucci’s Web loafers are so iconic – they elevate everything. We’ll be wearing this sparkly silver pair with one of the season’s other most covetable buys, the pant suit.

The Embroidered Mule
Mules may have been around since Marie Antoinette’s day, but simple sliders have never felt fresher. As ever, it’s all in the way you wear them: this embroidered pair by Alberta Ferretti look as good with frayed denim as they do a flowing gown.
