sequinned-platforms.jpgCan sequins on platform shoes ever be tasteful? We think this style by Carvela comes as close as possible, and will be a good party staple for those who just can't quite see themselves strutting around in purple glitter tree-trunks come party season. Can you see yourself in these babies instead? They're certainly more chic than freak.

The sequins themselves are smoky-coloured greys, whiltes and blacks, making a smart match with the solid, round-edged heels. The heels themselves are beautifully sculpted, and lend these shoes their quality look; a look you won't always find on the high street.
