NYE Footwear: Make it Count

New Year’s Eve is the most anticipated party night of the year – and the best excuse to dress up – so you better make your shoes count. Whether you hit a glam gala or a house party, flash and elegance are musts for ringing in 2014. Many like to wear something new on NYE; a superstition we’re down with. Our advice? Buy the perfect shoes for the occasion to kick off 2014 in style.

For the ladies…
Nothing says New Year’s Eve more than sparkle, which is why we love the glitzy ALDO Anklam stiletto. It’s the type of style that looks great on anyone, an elegant addition to any cocktail dress (meaning you can wait to the last minute to decide on the dress). The best part is that they are available in black or gold, making for easy coordination with accessories. At $80, they won’t break the bank either.

For the guys…
Your lady will want to dress up, so naturally you’ll need to look the part as well. We suggest you start with a shiny new pair of black dress shoes, specifically the ALDO Weinzinger. They’re a suave addition to your New Year’s Eve evening look, whether for a black tie affair or for more of a refined-casual ensemble, like dinner with friends. You can feel good about your investment as they’ll remain a staple in your work attire rotation well into the New Year.
