Are you easily distracted by shiny things? Do you often find yourself stopping mid-sentence to gawp at stylish ladies glittering possessions? Are you guilty of pinching gleaming trinkets to pimp out your nest? If you answered “yes” to one or more of those questions, then this Metallic Shoes Magpie Edit is for you.

All magpie stereotypes aside (turns out that widely-held knowledge is actually a myth) the long-standing metallic trend continues to be major for spring/summer 2016. The high-shine movement has slowly been growing momentum since Burberry set the standard for it back in 2013, where they showcased everything from dresses to swimwear in colourful metallic finishes for their Spring collection. Moving along the timeline, the trend has filtered down through the luminous threads of mirror-shine striped dresses and sequin-adorned skirts to footwear in all silhouettes and heights.
