Which Shoes to wear for an engagement party? 

Has your 2020 social calendar got ‘engagement party’ every other month? Are you unsure of what to wear, or stressing you won’t have enough looks to cover all these events, or even better, is it your engagement party? At Terry de Havilland we have you covered for all the engagement parties in your diary so you can stand out each time. From platforms to kitten heels you can go for a completely new look for every new event. Here are some styling tips for your engagement party looks whether your the bride to be or a guest:


It might be your engagement party or it could be one of your best friends but either or, you can go for a bold colourful vibe. If you like to be the centre of attention and stand out when you’re with your girls then we have the most colourful platforms for you to shop. 

Our newest addition to our new SS20 collection is the Sofia Electric Blue, designed in a trio of silver, dark and bright blue colour scheme so you will not walk into any engagement party un-noticed. Another vibrant colourway is our Sofia Ice Cream, worn by Fearne Cotton, the Sofia Ice Cream gained a lot of popularity, so we are bringing it out again in our SS20 collection this month! 


Are you after an elegant, feminine vibe for your engagement party and want to find the perfect shoes to match your outfit? We may have a large selection of chunky wedged heels but we have shoes which can be styled for an elegant engagement party.

If you are after a baby pink hue, we have our 70’s platform Lena heel in faux snakeskin leather,  which can be worn with, or without the strap, so you can style it in two ways! If you are after a mixture of fabrics we have our Sofia Pink Champagne and Ava Pink Champagne in a combination fabric design of suede and faux snakeskin leather. The suede fabric creates a more feminine tone to the shoe, breaking up the leather. However, if you prefer a thin stiletto heel then our Ava silhouette is the shoe for you.


A kitten heel is one of the most elegant heels you can wear. Maybe you didn’t have a high heel in mind, but we have the perfect kitten heel mule to go with your engagement party look. Our Daisy 50 heel is in our iconic Terry de Havilland faux snake print leather in black, or we have black and white contrast colourway for you to shop.


Minimalism is in and so are nude tones. We do nude tones the Terry de Havilland way – in snakeskin of course. You have a choice of a range of silhouettes in these neutral tones from our nude snake Eva or Lena which are both designed in nude snake prints. The Eva has a 10.5cm heel height and 1.5cm single platform and no fastening which creates an elegant, slip-on. The Lena has a slightly higher heel at 12cm’s but also has a 3cm double platform.  We also have a natural tone available in our Lena silhouette and Margaux Mid if you prefer a smaller wedged heel.




If you loved our wedge in natural then you will love our Margaux collection. We have a number of styles and colourways in two heel heights so you can go with a height you feel most comfortable in. A wedge is a good heel to go for when you are planning to party all day or night as they are the most comfortable heel you can go for. As well as a natural hue in our mid-height at 11cm’s and 3cm platform, we have the Margaux Mid in black croc patent leather and lightning Terry de Havilland detailing. We also have our fun, higher heeled Margaux in Python Gold and Silver. These heels will no doubt create a statement, especially if you are the bride to be – the silver hue especially is a must in a 14cm heel and 3cm platform for comfort!


Some girls are heel girls, some are boot girls, and you don’t need to feel underdressed in a pair of Terry de Havilland boots. We have our calf-high Lola Boot which is perfect to style with a short skirt or dress. We have our Lola available in natural, brown and black so these colours can be paired with anything! We also have our platform Aria boot – a boot you can never feel underdressed in! Our Aria is available in Forest Gold Silver which is definitely a statement colourway or we have it in a more subtle 70’s suede combination. Another favourite Terry de Havilland boot is our sophisticated, square toe Valentina Green in bottle green faux pony hair.


Another new addition to our Spring Summer 2020 collection is our Lillita silhouette! This heel combines an iconic Terry de Havilland styling, fabrics, silhouette and pattern influenced by our original 70’s influence, combined with a modern curved heel which is the heel trend of the year. Our Lillita is available in two colourways: Forest Gold Silver and Gold Silver. If you want to stand out in true Terry de Havilland fashion, especially if it is your engagement party, then our Lillita curve is the must-have shoe for you!
