The Perfect Shoes for Your Holiday Office Party

The music has started in shopping malls, the decorations are up, and the party invites have begun to grace your inbox. It’s officially holiday season. Between the people you’ll be seeing and inevitable photo opps, it’s the time of year for looking your best. Your first chance will probably be at the annual office holiday party; although it’s your chance to look a little different than you usually do at work, you definitely want to avoid a glammed-out NYE look or looking like you tried too hard. We suggest letting your shoes grab the outfit attention and building your outfit from there.

For the ladies…
When it comes to the office holiday party, you should have a little more fun with your footwear than you normally would at the office. Our pick for the season? The ALDO Gruz, an eye-catching platform pump. Detailed with season-appropriate beading, these towering platform pumps show your playful side. They’re a world apart from what your coworkers are used to seeing you in, but not too over the top that you’ll look out of place. Pair them with any of those little black dresses in your closet for a simple and elegant finish. 

For the guys…
For this year’s holiday work party, opt for a crisp pair that enhances our overall dapper threads without looking too serious. To complete this business-casual look, our office party shoe of choice is the black ALDO Adric. Though they’re categorized as “sneakers,” the shoe’s mixed material and minimal-chic design give you the option to dress them up with a blazer, dress shirt and dark denim. Not to mention, they are also a wardrobe staple you can wear well into the New Year; so that makes them a win-win.
