Who doesn’t love, especially after a crap few weeks at the office, for someone to suggest a few impromptu drinks post-work?

Problem: you’re in your shite auld work clothes and while you can scrounge a lipstick off a colleague and do something with your hair in the ladies loos, shoes are a bit more of a challenge.

So I reckon everyone should have an emergency pair of fancy footwear in their desk drawer – just in case of going out emergencies, y’unnderstan. Here are nine pairs that’d absolutely rise to any drinks, dinner or disco-based panic-station. Enjoy!

Metallic Occasion Super Point, €18, in Penneys mid-October.

Leather court shoes, €49.95, Zara.

Not really a heels gal? Throw a fancy pair of buckled boots in there like these premium ones from New Look, about €80.

These two-part Jilly shoes, €78, from Office, are super-cute.

Get thee to Miss KG for these Echo sandals, €95

Red's a perfect way to brighten up, well, anything. €44.50, Red Herring at Debenhams.

Zara's your destination for these jewelled beauts, €79.95.

Who doesn't love a little leopard? €85, Office.

Would you believe me if I told you these were from Dorothy Perkins? Pewter ankle boot, €60.
