schuh Aladdin snake effect gold heeled ankle boots

There’s no need to wait until the office Christmas party to get your glam on and don some precious metals on your feet – this is a look you can sport now. Metallics have been all-over the place throughout the summer months, and they’re not going anywhere.  If you’re shine-shy, use this as your how-to guide. Whether it’s silver, gold or rose gold – and whether you’re strutting in stilettos or sticking to sneaks, we’ll run you through how to wear metallics for all occasions.

All Day Every Day

Everyone needs a pair of shoes in their arsenal that are as at home in the office as they are at after-work drinks. A heeled ankle boot is the perfect versatile option for keeping you on your feet all day.

If you’re up for going bold, opt for Aladdin, the all-over snake effect gold heeled ankle boots. These are a total show-stopper. Let your boots take center stage and wear them with turned-up loose fit tailored trousers or ankle-grazing denim to show them off.

If your office is formal and you usually opt for monotone outfits in muted colours, metallics are great for bringing a little bit of excitement to the board-room in a fairly subtle way. To mix up boring office-wear try a classic ankle boot with metallic block heel, like Excusez Moi in black suede with gold.

Midnight Metallics

Metallics and dancing go hand-in-hand. A touch of shimmer is perfect for making any outfit ‘night-out’ ready. Even better, metallic shoes can turn a simple outfit into a stand-out outfit. The pointed-toe court shoe is a classic and Missguided have given it a shiny upgrade with a holographic finish. The iridescent nature of the material means that they will go with most colours. Pair with skinny jeans for a laidback look, and complement with an oversized envelope clutch in a similar metallic material.

If you’re a rookie when it comes to heels, the schuh Annie low heel is your saviour. In on-trend rose gold, these beauties are delicate and chic but the chunkier heel will add a little bit of extra comfort. For a softer, girly look try these with a full midi skirt. Up the game by matching the rosy metallic hue with tones of blush-pink.

Shiny Sneaks

If you’re not quite ready to step out of your sneaker-shaped comfort zone, then you’ll be pleased to know that your trainers can get a shiny make-over too. Metallic trainers are perfect for the weekend, and look just right paired with lighter washed denims. Miss Jackson seriously delivers with a minimalist silhouette, coming in reflective silver, bronze and even pink.

We know that lots of trainer fans are loyal to the classics though – so don’t worry, you can still wear your favourite styles and rock the metallic trend. We love these super-shiny silver beauties from Converse.

There you have it, a metallic option for everyone and every occasion. Shine on.
