There’s a girl who wears the most delightful mirror-shiny golden brogues I’ve ever seen, She pulls off the look so effortlessly. I’m doubtful I could do the same but I’ve made it my mission to find three ways to wear metallic shoes.
It would be easy to step out of line (see what I did there?) in something so ostentatious as metallic shoes so I’ve been watching said girl over the last few weeks, in a totally non-creepy way, gathering intel on the various ways she wears her shiny shoes to add lustre to any look.
Work – Tailored pants and print top
A simple outfit that just works. A print shirt helps to balance the ‘out there’ glare of my glittery kicks.
The added bonus of wearing metallic slip-on’s is comfort! I don’t know about you but since having a baby you’ll rarely see me in a pair of heels anymore, at least with metallic flatties I’ll still feel gorge.
Casual – Jeans and plain top
Let the shoes be the hero of the outfit with denim jeans and a plain top. Give the look a bit of an edge with ripped jeans, or keep it clean with a classic fit. I like lighter coloured shirts with silver metallics and darker shirts with golds as the colours seem to contrast more nicely with each other.
Let’s play – Dress ups
A cute or casual dress is a fun way to style metallic shoes.
A chambray dress, shirt dress or striped jersey dress are all quite ideal and would look pretty adorbs too, unlike my poor choice below, hindsight is a wonderful thing (Don’t get me wrong, I friggen LOVE this dress however my flattie metallics don’t compliment it well).
Tie it all together with a charming scarf or statement necklace and a cuff bangle.
Where to buy?
I’ve had a look around and you can pick up a whole heap of excellent shiny bargains at my favourite places like Asos and The Iconic. Styletread are great too but the shopping experience to find styles I liked wasn’t as easy. If you’re going to hit up some bright delights I recommend Asos.
