It's holiday party season, which means you're about to spend many hours standing around, eating cold appetizers, and making small talk with people whose names you don't remember. We'd all rather be at home in our sweats watching Netflix, so how do you make these social situations bearable? Comfort. Comfort is key. And that means swapping out your normal heels for a pair of cute sneakers.
Contrary to popular belief, you can wear sneakers to formal parties and blend right in with all the fancy guests. You just have to know how to do it. Let these 10 celebrities be your guide to surviving holiday party season with your sanity (and feet) intact.
The rule with Balinska's look is simple. Make the outfit so damn extra that it doesn't matter what shoes you wear.
The former Pussycat Doll stepped out recently wearing white sneakers that looked party-ready thanks to her monochromatic pantsuit and shirt that added the perfect pop of color. Good tailoring and color-blocking are two surefire ways to dress up your tennis shoes.
Again, the crisp tailoring on Hadid's pants makes this outfit feel 10 times more formal. Oh, and the vest is a nice touch.
Ms. Mendes is employing a trick here I myself have done many times: throwing a structured jacket over a casual outfit to class it up. It works. Every time.
Christine and the Queens
Much like Ella Balinska's outfit, this pantsuit doesn't need an uncomfortable heel to gain entry to the party. This pantsuit is the party.
One small detail in Pompeo's look elevates it from casual to formal: the collar on her jumper. Just don't pop it. (This isn't 2007!)
It's amazing what a good coat can do.
Hadid's casual outfit here is balanced out by her chic, tight updo and dramatic makeup. Lipstick like that deserves to be seen!
Gomez's pinstripe suit here is serving major ’50s-businessman vibes. Snag something like this, and you could wear your gym shoes to the party. (Okay, maybe not, but you get my point.)
