Cue the Compliments: 30 Statement Heels That Will Make All of Your Holiday Outfi

Another year has come and gone, meaning it’s time to reflect back on some of the best footwear trends of the year. One of my personal favorites? Loud, proud, embellished statement heels. Although I’m not a fully converted platform princess (I’m partial to my white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers which have seen better days…) , the holidays are the one time of year I relish in putting on a pair of bedazzled sky-high stilettos to ring in the festivities with family and friends. Giant, fuzzy pom-poms, anyone?
