Style Guide: Metallic Shoes

by Kate Franco on May 5, 2013 · 12 comments

spring style metallic shoesThere’s no escaping it — metallics continue to be hot this season. I’ve been indulging in some less expected ways, like the retro vibe sandals featured above. Metallics can be brash and loud and attention-getting. So if that’s not your style, but you want to stay current, metallic shoes are a great way to incorporate a dash of the trend without getting too flashy.

This is a round up of some of the cool metallic shoes I’ve seen around the interwebs lately. I’ve broken it down into mini-trends to make it easier to digest. Tons of shoes included in this roundup — so I hope you find something that works for you! xox.

Classic Pumps

Dare to wear to work? Here are some classic options. From the extreme holographic pump to the mild-mannered cap toe, there’s a ton of variety out there. My girl Adiel has been rockin’ some great metallic pumps lately – silver�AND�holographic�– so inspiring!

My Fave? The holograph. Get wild!

Ankle Straps

Ankle strap heels and sandals are in and of themselves a big trend this year, but add metallic to that trend and you’ve got yourself a stunner. From casual flats like my shoemint sandals to delicate heels and wedges, get ready to knock yourself out.

My fave? Those cognac and silver wedges. Cute at an AMAZING price.

Retro Flair

I love me some 70’s/bohemian style, so it’s fitting that I would like metallic shoes with retro flair. But there’s some great art deco styles out there, too! Great Gatsby? Yes, please.

My Fave? The ones I own, obviously!

Fancy Flats

Not a heels girl? Not to worry. Obviously, metallic shoes come in flat styles too. A basic silver or a cap toe are both great options for work. Play on menswear with adorable oxfords or get sassy with some of the trendier styles like clear acrylic or lucite.

My fave? The clear and metallic flats. Edgy.

My name is Kate Franco and I endorsed this message — I currently own no less than 5 pairs of shoes that have some kind of metallic detail. Woops.

I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of metallic sandals that aren’t TOO ‘out there’ and these Chinese Laundry ones look like they may be the winner… especially at $40. That’s a steal! xx

If you only knew how many things I own that are metallic. From flats to flip flops, to purses to makeup bags, it’s insane and some my friends call me the metallic girl (as in material girl,lol) I’ve had this obsession for years, glad it’s finally trendy!
