If there's an easy win for party season, it's anything and everything metallic. Every year, classic metallic shades and fabrics come back around, and every year we fall in love with them all over again. If you want to ease yourself in one step at a time, start with shoes. While, of course, we're fans of Carrie Bradshaw–worthy golden heels, this season (and beyond), there's equal success to be had from a silver pair. Shiny shoes are a style that goes with anything (particularly denim), and even the simplest iteration can jazz up the most basic of outfits. Which, when you're strapped for time and/or cash, is the ultimate solution at this point in the year.
Style Notes: Matching your bag to your shoes is a classic styling tip that's back in a big way. Case in point? The above image.
To help you out, we've created a roundup of the best 20 pairs of silver heels out there. You'll see there's something for everyone—from the £25 ASOS disco-ready pair you will never regret buying to the £1250 Dolce & Gabbana crystal-embellished showstoppers that deserve to be on your mantel in between wears. Sure, the style is very Strictly Come Dancing, but so are many of this season's other party trends (feathers, ruffles and high-shine dresses, etc.). For all budgets and heel heights, these are the best silver shoes to shop now and love forever more.
