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.
