Go big or go home. Everyone from Miu Miu to Dolce & Gabbana agrees that this year is all about making big, bold fashion statements: from flamenco-inspired ruffles to statement everything, it's safe to say that Minimalism has left the building. 

So begin by putting your best foot forward (literally) and embracing a tricked-out shoe. Accessories are a great way to make a statement with any outfit, and this summer has already been full of embellished footwear, such as the embroidered mule loafer look set off by – who else? – Gucci. It turned out it was just the beginning: the Fall Winter runways were a showcase of the most dazzling, blinged-up heels and flats – and now that it's time to transition your wardrobe, you'd better believe it's time to slip into some seroiusly OTT shoes.

Not restricted to any particular type of footwear, we've seen this look dominating everything from pearl pool slides and sequin sneakers to studded booties and pimped-out pumps. 

We guarantee that all eyes will be to the floor when you're rocking a pair of slide-ons covered in gems (who can forget Christopher Kane's crystal-encrusted Crocs?) – but that doesn't mean you should skimp on style above the ankles! Try pairing a glitzy shoe with distressed denim for a contrasting weekend look. Add a brightly beaded heel to your all-black work ensemble for a pop of color and attitude in the workplace, or finish off a pared-back, satin evening look with some shimmering, sky-high stilettos that you'll need sunglasses to look at.
