Nicole Scherzinger shows this season's hottest shoe trend some major love...
That's right ladies; subtle courts and minimal booties are a thing of the past thanks to the likes of Nicole Scherzinger, who has embraced glitter shoes with open arms and yes — you should be too.
The season's most coveted shoe trend was kick-started back in Feb when we clocked this handsome pair of bright pink boots on the Saint Laurent catwalk and since then, we knew our Christmas shoes of choice would be taking a very bold spin.
It's not just ankle-grazing boots that have been given a glam-over either. Towering courts, skater shoes and on-point brogues have also been given a glittery spin, making it easy to get in on the sparkling action, no matter your style.
The coolest way to don a glitter shoe is to keep the rest of your attire simple and paired back (this is not an option for your already statement frock). Take a tip out of Nicole's stylish book and rock a pair of shimmering heels with a tonal-hued dress or suit for a chic spin.
Or, for a very cool off-duty twist, try rocking a pair of amped-up flats with your easy-to-wear boyfriend jeans and plain tee combo; it'll make them look dressier in a flash.
As you'd expect with a trend this bold, some of the styles on offer don't quite make the sophisticated cut. To make things way easier for you, we've rounded up the sleekest glitter shoes out there to make sure you ace the trend like a pro. Welcomes.
Black Glitter Boots, £90, Aldo
A glitter boot in a simple shape and dark colour is the least OTT way to get in on the craze.
Gold Glitter And Stripe Courts, £298, J.Crew
Gold and sparkly? We're in festive heaven with these show-stoppers...
Glitter Brogues, £19.99, New Look
If heels just aren't your thing, these silver brogues will do the trick...
Red Ankle Boots, £45, Asos
These Asos lovelies are so close to the sold-out Saint Laurent originals that not even the most-seasoned designer shopper would be able to tell the difference.
Ankle Strap Courts, £39.99, Zara
These delicate heels have the perfect 10cm heel height; ideal for dancing the night away.
Could you ask for a better shoe trend to see you through the festive season? Yep; we didn't think so...
