Glitter heels and any party are meant to be together like coffee and milk, pizza and soda, and V-neck sweaters with button-down shirts. Sparkly heels, along with glitter boots, jackets, and tops, are the must-have accessory items of any party outfit, and are just perfect to shine brightly like stars, while also adding a special flavor to even the simplest and most boring looks.

Best Sparkly/ Glitter High Heels Shoes: How to Wear Glitter Heels

Whether you love (and possibly already own a pair of) glitter heels or are trying to venture into this sparkly trend, we have a few tips and tricks on how to wear glitter heels right with any outfit and just everywhere. Also make sure to browse through our sparkling list of 15 pairs of glitter heels to wear at your special party and any night out, too (but we also have small pieces of advice for daytime glitter heels!).

How to Wear Glitter Heels with Any Outfit

So, you got your pair of glitter heels but don’t know how to style them right. The first thing you should take into consideration is that sparkly shoes are statement items, and usually catch all the attention. Therefore, you’d better stick to either monochrome or ton-sur-ton outfits, or even shiny ones if that’s a minimalist chic glittery slip dress.

While with the monochrome look you can really have a blast choosing your glitter heels from a variety of different shades (from pink to silver, you’ll be spoiled for choice), with the total-glitter look, you’d better stick to a single hue and play with it, meaning that if you are opting for a golden dress, golden glitter shoes are the way to go (but then you can definitely have fun with the makeup, especially with a glitter lipstick!).

As for those who just got a statement sequined jacket, we recommend getting a matching pair of solid-colored glitter heels and a total black outfit or, alternatively, a pair of mom jeans a cute top (a boyfriend tee is fine, too). Such a look is absolutely perfect for a daytime look or a night out with friends, but if you feel the sparkly jacket would be just too much for daytime, we suggest substituting it with a simple black jacket and a cute tank top.

How to Wear Sparkly/ Glitter Heels Shoes

Contrary to the common belief, glitter shoes are quite versatile and they pair very well with practically any outfit, be that a business-chic office look, a daytime one or a night-time disco outfit. The most important styling tip to keep in mind while wearing glitter heels is the correct color combinations of your shoes and the overall outfit.

• To keep it safe, you are always free to wear glitter heels (be that gold, silver or brightly colored ones) with monochrome white, black or nude looks. You’ll never fail with such a combo, which is pretty safe to wear to the office and in the daytime as well.

• Treat your silver and gold glitter heels like precious jewelry – how would you match your gold earrings with your outfits? The same way, you are free to wear gold, silver and slightly toned-down champagne and nude glitter heels with practically any look, from the most minimalist chic to the boldest ones.

• Keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum while wearing glitter shoes, as they are already bold in and of themselves to attract loads of attention. Costume jewelry, oversized handbags and bright makeup looks are absolutely contradicted here.

• When it comes to the perfect bag to pair with your glitter shoes, stick to delicate small clutches or purses in a nude coloring.

• Glitter shoes are meant to be with jeans and denim pieces, be that a Nineties denim miniskirt or a chambray shirt. Denim is the best way of wearing glitter heels in the daytime with a chic casual flair to your outfit.

• Glitter heels are capable of adding a much-desired strong accent to pastel pieces, especially if you prefer to wear head-to-toe pastel outfits. Think gold glitter heels with a ballerina-style dusty rose mini dress, and you’ll be the prettiest creature wherever you go!
