Work parties, family events and New Year's soirées - the party season is finally here. This time of year allows us to go for looks we may normally shy away from - glitter, sequins, opulent fabrics and deep, rich colors. Shopping in December can be quite chaotic so we pieced together some of this season's hottest holiday trends for you. Because shopping from the comfort of our couch is always a good idea in winter.

The Soft Finish

Soft finishes such as velvet, suede and even fur have been marching down the runways this season. What better reason to break out those rich, deep colors and opulent fabrics than a good,old fashioned holiday party. Just don't spill that mulled wine...

The Monk Strap

The new holy grail of men's dress shoes, it's laces out and buckles in this holiday season. Raise the sophistication with a brogue-style perforation or go for a minimalist, clean finish - finally, the choices are endless for the guys too.

The Slingback

Ever since Chanel took over the runways with their two-tone version earlier this year, slingbacks have been having a moment. Make it simple with a low heel or go all out glamour in a pointy toe and suede finish.

The Classic Brogue

Jazz up the classic oxford with detailed perforations that lend a sophisticated element to any look. Pair with Richer Poorer socks to really elevate your holiday party outfit.

The Dressy Ankle Boot

We're not limiting ourselves to heels this holiday season - not when there are metallic ankle boots and animal print shooties to wear. Get that added element of stability for your feet while staying bang on trend in this season's most coveted materials.

The Men's Ankle Boot

If dress shoes aren't your style - we have just the thing. Ankle boots with detailing such as perforations, side buckles and two-tone suede allow casual styles to be dressed up when necessary.
