For women, having a great pair of elegant party shoes is a vital factor for a successful New Year's Eve outfit, as it can really make or break an ensemble. New Year's Eve calls for both ladies and gentlemen to bring out their best outfits, without regard for looking too flashy or attracting too much attention. In the following, you'll learn about the top five party shoes for New Year's 2011, at a mix of price points.
You can pick up this luxury-look yet budget-priced evening shoe from Zappos, which sells it for $99. The ivory satin shoe has a lustrous upper with a pleated vamp and a fitted oversized bow. You'll find a thin ankle strap with a buckle closure, as well as a soft leather lining with a padded footbed. This one has a full leather sole, a 1/2 inch hidden platform and a heel high of 3 3/4 inches. The Electra will look great with both white and black dresses this New Year's Eve.
6PM.com has a ton of great deals on mid priced women's shoes, including these Giuseppe Zanottis. The white shoes originally sold for a whopping $650, but you can pick them up today for $195. These formal shoes have a soft leather upper with a thin ankle strap and an adjustable buckle closure. You'll find an ornamental T-strap with glistening jewels and an open toe to show off your pedicure. The E10265 has a kitten heel and will look great worn with metallic dresses.
These high end black shoes are on sale now at 6PM, where they once went for $495 but now sell for more than $100 off that price. The shoes have a 3 1/2 inch heel and a bold bow accent high above the vamp parallel to the ankle. You'll find a small gold tone ankle closure, a Spanish heel and a cream leather sole. While this one is perfectly suited for big nights like New Year's Eve, you'll do just as well wearing them for less formal occasions or to the workplace.
The high end Italian designer has produced another beauty, which goes for $657 today from Net A Porter, well below its $1,095 retail price.

Net A Porter suggests wearing this one with a white dress and brown accessories for an understated look.
