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.
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.
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.
