    Well, now we know what to gift for Valentine’s, right? Some gorgeous pair of glitter shoes!

    So after gifting, how do you wear glitter shoes to ensure you look as sophisticated?

    How To Wear Glitter Shoes- 5 Tips!

    Glitter shoes are such a closet darling and we just love how edgy they can make our looks. But to ensure we look our best, here is a guide:

    1. Avoid a sparkle overload.

    You don’t want to look all starry by wearing an all-sparkly look and finishing off with glitter shoes! A lot of embellishments make your look so heavy and loud. And cheap!

    One thing I’ve noted from street style fashion enthusiast like Macy Stucke and Maria Vizuete is that they prefer minimalism as a way to make any look appear expensive, even if it already is. Women's Grey Ankle Strap Heels Peep Toe Heels Pumps High Heel Shoes

    So with this tip, go for plain looks or should I say, non-embellished outfits, that will be elevated by the touch of glitter from your glitter shoes.  For example, you could start by saying NO to that gorgeous sequin gown in your wardrobe and those dangly diamond jewelry in your jewelry box. Instead, get those cute studs, that thin necklace and glitter shoes for your black or red dress.

    But then again, if you feel like your confidence is way above the roof and you’d want to look all sparkly in sequin; then get a mini dress or a knee-length fitting dress that will give room for your shoe to shine. I love to keep a glitter shoe and a sequin dress in the same color family if I have to do the combination for a sleeker vibe unlike wearing multiple colors of sparkle.

    2. Boost the sparkle with minimal jewelry.

    We want the glitter shoes to stand out so what better way is there that wearing that cute thin necklace than that chunky one you have? Trust me, minimal jewelry will also make your look expensive.

    “But Dalene, I want that statement necklace I got yesterday, and that chunky bangle mom gave me!”

    Well, we love attention but girl, say no to CHUNKY jewelry that will take away from your glitter shoes. Instead, wear those thin necklaces, that pair of diamond studs and that thin bangle! Good to go!

    3. Tone down the glitz with natural makeup.

    Girl! Makeup will kill you look if you get it wrong! Valentine’s is a season to look all beautiful but I remind you, stay away from too much bold makeup if you want your glitter shoes to stand out.

    Trust me; a no-makeup makeup look will do it for you! You can just get some more gloss on your lips or perhaps a red lip color if you can’t stay away from color.

    4. Bring along a glamorous bag.

    You don’t want to have that rusted shoulder bag you got from the store to Valentine’s date! I mean, now you want to kill you glamorous glitter vibe with some ugly bag?

    I advise you to get that gorgeous purse that absolutely matches the luxurious vibe of your glitter shoes. I love metallic purses and clutches which are just of the right size and luxe to complete the look.

    5. Ensure your toenails and feet are as cute.

    Who lied to you that ladies with long thin legs have it all?

    With great toenails that are polished and properly filed, your open glitter shoes will thank you forever! Condition your toenails and keep your feet moisturized with a good body lotion.

    Honey, with those 5 tips you’ll be good to go with your glitter shoes. Even as you dress up with your beautiful evening dress, you’ll look terrific!

    But remember; take care of your glitter shoes since many complain that the glitter can fall off.

    So how do you take care of glitter shoes?

    How To Wear Glitter Shoes

    The easiest and best way to take care of this glitter fall-off is by using hair spray! I mean, always keep the glitter in place by spraying your hair spray directly on the glitter, and shake it lightly; if it doesn’t fall off, girl, you’re good to go!

    Also remember not to rub your glitter shoes just on any surface because it can be rubbed off and as you wash it, just rinse it with cold water and after it air-dries, put some hair spray on it.

      I have never tried any sprakly shoes bt this is mostly because I spend my days in flats and sprakling flars are not fun in my opinion anyways, will surprise my better half with one of these.

    2. Annemarie LeBlanc says

      Those are fabulous looking shoes! I love your tip of wearing natural make up and using less accessories when you are wearing glitter shoes. I wish I could still wear high heeled shoes though. Right now, I can only wear two inch heels.

    3. Natalia says

      These glitter shoes look just amazing! They will be a perfect match for Valentine’s dresses. Too bad my feet are huge … which makes it difficult to find anything nice and comfortable at the same time. 🙂

    4. azirtak says

      I dont have a single pair of glitter shoes or have ever actually owned a pair! I would love to try it but I don’t know how to make a glitter shoe more casual! These are so beautiful and stunning so I definitely want to get them!

    5. Eloise says

      what a fun look for the Valentines Day outing… I really like the first pair you’ve shown. I haven’t worn heels like that in a long time, but it makes me want to get back in them ; )

    6. StylishGeek says

      Those FJS shoes look fierce! They are fall cute but would probably pass wearing them. I’m 5’11 so I do not need the extra chunky heel. But they do look fab in general 🙂

    7. Karla says

      OMG! Thanks for the tip. I didn’t know that hairsprays can be useful for my glitter shoes! I really love your blog. I learned something new today.

    8. Becca Wilson says

      These shoes are so very fun! I never really would have thought of wearing glitter shoes but I have seen them in all the stores lately.

    9. Pam R says

      Oh these are beautiful! I don’t think I have ever owned a pair of sparkly shoes, but I think I should own at least a pair 🙂 They look so pretty!

    10. Dani Flanders says

      You had me at glitter shoes! I literally talk about my love of glitter shoes (and my ridiculous collection) in my “About Me” page 🙂 🙂 I only have ONE pair of glittered heels though, so I may need to add more to my collection 😉

    11. Karen Monica says

      I always loved admiring glitter shoes but never really thought of buying a pair. But after reading your post, I might just get myself a pair with a little bit shorter heels perhaps… Lol

    12. Kay Pittman says

      OMG! These shoes are gorgeous and I LOVE glitter! I am obsessed with the first pair. Where did you get them?

    13. Petite Style Beauty says

      I like the first pair better because they’re more subtle. I appreciate your advices and will look for a pair but definitely not so much high or I won’t be able to walk as I’m not good on heels.

    14. Jennifer says

      Oh man, the toenail one! Yes!! I always have to remind friends about how important the toes are in open-toed shoes! We often forget how important the smallest details are! Great tips for rocking the glitter glam! I love these shoes!

    15. Andie Comala says

      OMG You literally reminded me that Valentine’s Day is coming up soon ! Well I hope to have a cute outfit and some sparkly shoes for my dinner ready 🙂 I ;love me a statement shoe specially for super cute date nights like Valentine’s.

      So pretty those glitter shoes are; very classy and sophisticated indeed. I would feel like Cinderella wearing those gorgeous shoes the first top 3 photos are my favorite. I wish I could wear those high heels my feet get hurts afterwards.

    17. Alisha says

      Seems I need some new pumps. I’d love a pair perfectly matches my taste and style because sometimes it can look so overdressed. So thanks for these ideas.
