Runway To Real Way: Glitter Bootie Cuties

If you’ve clicked into this post then chances are, you’re just as excited about the glitter boot trend as we are. Sexy, chunky and funky, this footwear throwback is not the disco-inspired trend of its first iteration or even the goth-fueled fantasy of its second. The modern glitter boot is a whole new sleek and sophisticated ballgame.

Labels from high street brands to the highest tier of luxury got in on the glitter parade for the Fall 2017 season. Boot lengths soared up sky high to above the knee, bedazzled in floral patterns as seen at Oscar del la Renta or folded with thick, scintillating ruching at Saint Laurent. We also enjoyed the riding boot accents and two-tone color scheme at Chanel and the bright, cheerful throwback to our ‘Clueless’ days at J. Crew.

But again, since we are no longer in our Cher Horowitz from Clueless days, we set out to try and channel the trend into a more chic and sophisticated manner. What we came back with are shorter, more neutral options that offered a more practical punch without sacrificing any of the razzle-dazzle.

The house of Maison Martin Margiela is always good for an expected twist on a traditional shape. Their starry night pattern of silver dusting on stretchy black mesh with silver leather heels are a standout piece that can be played up, or down, as much as you’d like.

The River Island Gold Lurex Glitter Boots are as subtle as you can get and still secretly tout that footloose shine. For a budget-friendly price, we’re ready to make these point-toed pretties our new go-to work boot.

After the working day is done, girls just want to have fun, which will definitely be had in these gorgeous midnight glitter boots from Ash. Snap up these perfect round-toed ankle boots to slip over tights or skinny jeans and we know we’ll be living in these every weekend until spring.

Finally, the shoes that make leaving as much fun as arriving, Manuela de Juan’s subtly chic glitter & suede ankle boots are an effortlessly chic take on the trend and can be paired with literally anything from from slouchy pants to tailored knits. With boos at these prices, we may just have to spring for one in each color. Shimmer and shine this season in these fun and functional glitter boots!
