Whether you are attending a wedding, chilling with your friends or just wanting to add a little bit of twinkle to your outfit for the night, metallic footwear is the go-to option.
The latest metallic trend, from sneakers to strappy sandals, metallic footwear is having a fashion moment. One can choose from among a range of colours — gold, silver, grey, electric blue, hot pinks or even get them customised for that personalised touch.
From Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan to Taapsee Pannu and Alia Bhatt, and even the men including Karan Johar and Manish Paul, tinseltown’s best-dressed crowd has been sporting this trend. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, here are the key styles to buy.
High shine, metallic sneakers have popped up as one of the top shoe trends of the season. While gold is undoubtedly a winning colour, silver and rose gold are also top picks for these fashionable pieces of footwear. Pick up your own metallic sneakers now to add an injection of ‘look at me’ style into your everyday wardrobe.
Loafer or backless loafer
It’s time to trade your black horsebit loafers in for a shiny new pair. Backless styles are still a strong weekend choice; they elongate the leg wonderfully when worn with cropped denim. But traditional loafers have greater longevity. Punctuate dark workwear with your spaceage take on the classic footwear.
Block heel boot
A pair of metallic block heel ankle boots is a good option. Let them peep out of cropped trousers, or use them to modernise maxi dresses.
Heels are taking a sculptural turn. From heeled pump-cum-booties — aptly dubbed ‘hooties’ — to loafers with abstract heels and buckle detailing, these are a must have. By choosing a metallic pair you are ticking off two trends in one go.
Plain sandals just won’t cut the mustard for evening occasions this season. Metallic sandals will complement jewellery for feminine wedding looks, or add a hard edge to dark party outfits.
