In honor of the Summer Olympic games, what better way to get in the medal-giving spirit than with metallics. Metallics should not be strictly reserved for the bangles that hang from your wrist, but should be utilized in a great metallic shoe. Whether gold, silver or bronze, choose a metallic with purpose rather than poise. These celebs have opted to balance the shine and texture of their shoe choices with their impeccable style. Take a hint from these gold-winning A-listers and get ready for the games to begin!
MICHAEL Michael Kors
Twilight starlet Ashley Greene looks retro chic in this fit and flare floral frock and a pair of metallic silver strappy sandals. The shine from her shoes adds a level of sophistication to the younger looking dress. Try out a pair of sandals first when it comes to metallics if you’re scared of looking too much like a disco ball. The MICHAEL Michael Kors Berkley Sandal has the metallic sheen you hope for in silver, but the chunky and architectural make up of a sandal. MICHAEL Michael Kors has been pumping out style after style of shoe that fills those would be gap in a shoe wardrobe each season.
Kate Spade Karolina Pump
Covert Affairs actress Piper Perabo looks flashy and brilliant in this tie-neck dress pair with striking gold pumps. The bold contrast of the gold adds a subtle hint of vivaciousness to the outfit, aside from the bright red color of the dress. Add a hint of glimmer with a pair of gold pumps, like the Kate Spade Karolina Pumps. In a classic shape and manageable heel, these Kate Spade shoes have more to offer than what meets the eye. The subtle hint of snakeskin embossed on the leather puts these over the top.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Platform Sandal
Carrie Underwood may be a down home country star, but her style is all about attention. In strikingly bold booties, her metallic heel adds a bit of edge to her already decked out dress. The addition of a metallic to a sequin dress may seem like overkill, but here, the small shine in the heel paired with the contrast of the dark boot add a great balance. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Platform Sandal has that balance as well, the thick bronze-gold metallic sole reflecting off of the suede upper. Marc by Marc Jacobs does it again, adding the perfect amount of high-fashion into a commercial shoe.
