21 Street Style Looks That Prove Metallic Shoes Are Always the Right Choice

To say metallic shoes are having a moment is an understatement. You could go so far as to say that they've actually become a staple of the modern girl's wardrobe like leopard-print coats or culottes. The footwear trend has become a normal sighting on the streets, and styles can be found in stores at every price point, whether you're looking for gold, silver, bronze or any colourful high-shine finish in-between. But just because there's a proliferation of metallic shoes and boots at every turn doesn't mean that you automatically know how to wear them.

Fortunately for shiny-shoe beginners, the fashion crowds jumped on the happy-feet bandwagon pretty early—they've been wearing golden loafers, silver knee-high boots and twinkly kitten heels for a few seasons in a row. So what's their secret? Well, it's all about the occasion in question. We know that metallic shoes can work beautifully come party-time, or if you're a bride looking for something different. But what about daytime looks? It's all about the snazzy-to-casual ration: Yellow-gold mules are always going to look cool when they're set against something laid-back like a pair of jeans.

If you want to know how to wear metallic shoes, or you simply want to spend some time ogling the best street style outfits, keep reading and have your credit card ready.
