We’re all about festive footwear around the holidays. We’re also about comfort, which is why sky-high heels aren’t our pick for every outfit. Enter: party-perfect flats, from velvet to jeweled to glitter-festooned. While we love simple silhouettes, taking a satin slide or furry mule for a spin is loads more fun. The best part is many come with a super-affordable price tag. And at less than $150, why not experiment? They’re a great way to jazz up a simple black outfit, if that’s your bread and butter. Here, shop our edit made for the party season, starting at $23.
