Style Guide: The Best Shoe Styles to Wear on a Night Out

Whether it’s a girls’ night out in town, hitting a late-night show or just a special date night - the shoes you choose can really help to elevate your look. Whether you want sky-scraper stilettos or sophisticated pumps, there’s a shoe for your comfort zone.

 

Heels

 

Stiletto

 

A stiletto is the classic shape for an evening shoe, and lends itself perfectly to form-fitting dresses and skirts. Arguably the most difficult to walk in due to the thin heel and lack of support at the ball of the foot, but if you take it slow with smaller steps and step forward from heel-to-toe, you should be fine. Adding foot cushions to the balls of your feet can help cushion each step as well, and once you feel comfortable enough in them you’ll be able to enjoy your night out with the illusion of catwalk-ready legs. No shoe is more elegant than the iconic stiletto, after all.

Strappy

 

Strappy heeled sandals are perfect for teaming up with whimsical mini-dresses. The delicate straps can counterbalance a bolder design on your clothing, whether it’s an embroidered jacket or a patterned dress. Treat yourself to a pedicure and enjoy how feminine a few straps on your shoe can make you feel.

Block Heel

 

If you want the height of a stiletto but need more stability, a block heel will be your best friend. Much more supportive than a thinner heel with a stronger base for the heel of your feet, and additional details such as ankle straps will offer more security for the foot to avoid any wobbles.

Mid-Heels

If you want a little extra height but don’t feel confident with a full-on heel, mid-heels are great options.

 

Kitten Heel

 

Indulge yourself in all the classic stiletto shapes with a heel half the height. Kitten heels are effortlessly sophisticated and are always paired with a cult silhouette, whether it’s a slingback or court shoe. We love these paired with midi dresses, dressy culottes and evening dresses alike. They’re the most versatile mid-heel option for a night out.

Block Heel

 

Sandals and peep-toe shoes are often balanced out by a chunky block heel. Great for comfortable, night-long dancing and they look perfect paired with sundresses. A glamorous date-night choice, and you can elevate your look even further by choosing an embellished style.

Wedge Heel

 

If you want a little boost of height but really aren’t comfortable in heels, a wedge is your best alternative. The most supportive and secure heel type thanks to its wide base and block sole, it will provide you with comfort and style.

Flats

Heels not for you? Don’t worry - a great pair of pumps will go a long way. The perfect option if you value comfort above other factors on your night out because you can be sure you’ll dance all night long in these key styles.

 

Embellished

We love flirty footwear with additional trimmings and detailing such as chains, sequins and sparkle. A little extra hardware can elevate a classic sandal instantly, making it a great choice to brighten up a plain Little Black Dress.

Classic

 

You can’t go wrong with traditional slingbacks, ballerina pumps or even loafers. A little trickier to dress with because you don’t want to come across as too formal or professional, so we recommend pairing these styles with bold patterned trousers and a feminine blouse or a decorated mini dress.

Playful

 

For girls with a big personality to share, be bold with your flat footwear choices. Embroidery and 3d designs are amazing for standing out with fashionable juxtapose against a more classic dress. We recommend styles with unexpected combinations, such as brogues with a print or flip flops with decorative flower applique.
