BEST GLITZ: FERGIE FOOTWEAR
“Accente Too” glitter pumps pack a ton of bling for a wallet-friendly price. Her diva-friendly shoe line has plenty of great styles that the star herself wears, but we like these with a low-key skirt and top for a fun party ensemble.
BEST STATEMENT SHADES: VICTORIA BECKHAM
Leave it to the ultimate glamour to design a must-have pair of sunglasses. Her oversize “Audrey” style works as well at the beach as it does for dodging those pesky paparazzi – perfect for your on-the-go (and oh-so-glam) mom.
BEST COZY KICKS: THE ROW FOR TOMS
Curl up by the fire in these comfy plaid slip-ons – or take a cue from the shoe’s designers, and and pair them with a glam gown – either way, you’ll look and do good. The duo’s collaboration with TOMS, which donates one pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair bought, brings their high style to the earthy brand.
