As Christmas and New Year's Eve get ever closer, the need to vamp up our wardrobes gets stronger - just as our wallets deplete under an avalanche of Christmas shopping. Fortunately, we've never seen quite so many cheap party shoes on the high street before, and there's a huge range of styles to suit all tastes. Here's the latest installment in our run-down of the best 25 affordable party shoes out there, featuring all you need to step out in style.

This Week's Top Picks:

blue-shoes.pngBlue is a really popular colour for shoes at the moment, and we can promise you it's going to be even bigger next season. Why not get ahead of the curve with a pair of platforms in a bright and electric shade to make you an instant party hit? What have you got to lose? Exactly £24.99 if you go to New Look and pick up this pair...


If you're looking for a bit of sparkle in your life but are not currently blessed with the bling bling of excessive currency, you'll love this online exclusive offer from Matalan. For just £14 you can get this classic sparkly style in either festive gold or icy silver, and if you order now they'll be ready for wearing well in time for Christmas. The rounded toe and chunky heel guarantees easy wearing, so you won't be clicking your heels to go home with sore feet too early into the night!

We love the 'Cheryl' jewel-heeled peep-toe to bits when we first saw it on sale at £39.99, but we like it even more now it's been reduced to a staggeringly cheap and cheerful £20. Available from New Look in blush satin or black, it's a Miu Miu-inspired style that will add a note of classic chic to your LDB. Wear with a flash of red lipstick and some vintagey styling for a sweet and romantic effect.

We're crazy for these statuesque black glitter-soled platforms from Saints of Fashion. Available at Debenhams, they can be yours for just £22.50. Not for the faint-hearted, they are seriously high with a tree-trunk heel to draw a collective gasp from onlookers - but at this price, does it matter if you only wear them to make your entrance?


Working that jewel-tone trend? You can't go wrong with these eye-catching purple suedette platform pumps from Peacocks: they're yours for just £25. One of the season's hottest silhouettes, the thick platform and sole, low cut at the sides is a surefire hit for party season. We'd love to see this worn with some emerald greens and plenty of colourful jewellery.
