Metallic Shoes Make for Standout Strides

By  January 17, 2013

When putting together your outfit, shoes shouldn’t be overlooked. So for fancy feet, make a statement with metallic footwear. Inspired by the heels on the Chloe, Dries Van Noten and Giambattista Valli S/S 2013 runways, we rounded up our favorite similarly styled shoes. From flashy flats to the prettiest of pumps, in standard metallic hues like chrome and gold as well as some unexpected, Crayola box type colors with shiny finishes, prepare to meet your new favorite trend. Shoes in more organic shades, like copper or silver, are surprisingly versatile. They can be the standout piece of an understated black on black outfit or play off the prints and patterns of a more festive ensemble. However you choose to rock them, these shoes guarantee style success. Want to add dazzle to the rest of your look? Match your footwear to a metallic jacket or keep the trend subtle with a metal mani.
