Shoes for special occasions: Closed

Cold weather options
No matter what fashion editors say: if it's cold outside, cover your feet: 15°C and below is not the moment to walk around in sandals, choose pumps or boots instead. Those who do not stand high heels of any sort can go for flats, either embellished or metallic ones, or for menswear styles like loafers or slippers (which are basically the same shape, but without the seam that characterizes the first). This season is a great moment to stock up on a pretty pair or two, to use with trousers.

This is the first post about shoes for special occasions, the second one will be published on Friday!

Flat-front trousers for special events
Special events: Satin Pumps by Caroline Grant. A pair of satin pumps is an investment and is the reliable go-to option for all women. Check that they are well made (no puckering, no bubbles, no glue visible anywhere, no stains) and that they are comfortable, which means they should have a wearable heel.
