One of the coolest things about fashion is thinking about your future plans and building your outfits based on them. During wintertime, less than a few months ago, we were all dreaming about springtime, and now that spring is finally here, we are already making plans for summertime. And what comes along with summer? Pool parties, prom and wedding parties, but also bonfires on the beach, of course! Along with summer come the impeccable combinations of sundresses and casual shoes, either with or without high heels (check out the coolest summer 2016 flats here!). Today we would like, however, to focus on party heeled shoes for summer 2016, as (at least) one pair of heels comes always in handy for any kind of summer party, be that a prom or your friend’s wedding. Although the correlation between high heels and summer mostly evokes unpleasant feelings, our small selection of 6 super comfortable heeled shoes for parties will make you change your mind for sure!
1. Flower Embellished Metallic Heel Sandals
If you really can’t stand or walk on stilettos, chunky heels will surely become your new best friends, as they effortlessly combine the feeling-at-ease factor with having one’s figure gracefully elongated. This pair of Hexagon sandals also combines the metallic trend with a more delicate pinkish color, embellishing the results with floral attachments and a pin-buckle strap fastening. These will look just perfect with a Sixties-inspired t-shirt dress or a high-waisted pair of super-skinny jeans. Buy this pair on ASOS!
