Get your NYE outfits ready: We’ve
finally reached the homestretch. At Who What Wear, we’ve personally been counting down to December 31 for weeks now, with many an email being forwarded around the offices as we all hunt for pieces worthy of seeing in the New Year. Whether you’re getting dolled up for a black-tie soir ée or a dance floor under a disco ball, one thing’s for sure: New Year’s Eve calls for footwear that’s just a little bit extra. Even if your plans call for cooking dinner with your S.O. and watching that ball drop, we’re big believers in making sure there’s still a party south of your ankles.
Check out the 10 pairs of occasion-worthy shoes and boots we can’t wait to wear—they’re just a click away thanks to Steve Madden’s range at Nordstrom.
If you’re under the impression you don’t need something rhinestone-encrusted in your wardrobe, let us assure you: You’re sadly mistaken.
Alessandro Michele has successfully normalized the ’70s disco vibe, and we currently need these rainbow-embellished platforms for both NYE and trips to the grocery store.
Cocktail looks feeling like a total snoozefest? Pairing over-the-knee stiletto boots with a dress that falls at the knee (or mid-shin) makes for a much more modern vibe.
If NYE were to materialize in shoe form, it would come as these boots—sequined to the max and with a chunky block heel seemingly designed for maximum dancing prowess.
Think open-toe shoes are reserved for warmer months? Think again: We’re pairing these red-suede sandals with Nordstrom’s crushed-velvet socks in turquoise for the happiest marriage of on-trend colors and winter-ready textures.
Seriously, if a look comes sans plumage this season, is it even on trend? These feather-embellished strappy heels are every bit the early-2000s glam we’ve been loving again since Will & Grace returned to our screens.
The stiletto style so good they made it in 10 different finishes. These classic pumps are everything you need to upgrade your favorite black ankle-grazing jeans to NYE-levels of chic.
You need to click through for a closer look at these sandals—the mini crystals are surely chic, but it’s the ultra-shiny rose-gold finish that has us sold. Pro tip: Pair with wintery jewel tones like burgundy and deep greens.
Love the fire-engine red, but we’d be doing you a massive disservice if we didn’t note that these dreamy booties from Steve Madden’s campaign also come in patent black leather.
Oh hi, it’s our favorite sandals making a sneaky second appearance on our top 10 list. This nude rhinestone version will be keeping us sophisticated (even if we end up wearing oversize “Happy 2018!” sunglasses).
Trust us—there’s way more where they came from. Shop more party-ready shoes styles over at Nordstrom (PS, we also really want this clutch).
