While high heels might seem like the only women’s shoe option for New Year’s Eve celebrations, flat shoes can be just as festive. And as post-Christmas sales begin, you can nab a great deal on a pair of shoes just in time for the holidays. Here are some stylish options to consider as you do your end-of-year sale shopping.


1. The bow-adorned slipper

These embellished slippers aren’t meant to be paired with a bathrobe. The easy-to-slip-on style features a black bow on top — making your feet seem like a belated Christmas gift. And the shoes are 50 percent off on Net-a-Porter, making them a great buy this holiday season.

3. The sparkly slip-on sneaker

Slip-on sneakers are a comfortable choice, but they might seem too casual for a New Year’s Eve celebration. These Topshop sneakers — they come in a burgundy colorway with a sequined pattern on the upper — feel a bit more festive, without sacrificing comfort.
