Best Fashionable Walking Sticks for Formal Events

Tuesday, 7 November 2017

There are countless different walking sticks on offer here at WalkingSticks.co.uk, with plenty of different styles, uses and strengths to choose from. When deciding which stick or cane is for you, there will be different aspects that stand out to you, but often one cane cannot meet all of the demands you may have for it. One day you may use your cane for a walk through the town or country, and another, you may be looking to accessorise your outfit to make a splash at a more formal gathering. For these purposes, all sticks are not created equal.

For those nights where formal attire is a must and impressions are key, a more fashionable cane or walking stick is the obvious choice. Less obvious though is the choice between fashionable sticks, as there are a wide variety of levels of style, elegance and flamboyance that are suited to different events, and different people. At WalkingSticks.co.uk, we know what we're talking about with regards to canes, so we've put together a few of our favourite fashionable sticks that we think will be a hit at formal events. Read on to learn more, or you can browse our entire range of Fashionable Walking Sticks yourself.

Amber-Effect Crutch Handle Wooden Walking Stick

Amber-Effect Crutch Handle Wooden Walking StickWhile plenty of fashionable and formal canes will opt for the glitzy look of polished metal or jewellery, it's hard to deny the classic look of varnished wood.

Stained with an amber-effect colour, the designers of this stick maximised the natural beauty of the beech wood shaft, resulting in deep contrasts of colours that make this cane stand out in any room.
