Silver and gold strappy evening sandals

From strappy sandals encrusted with diamantes to killer heels shimmering with glitter, which shoes will you go for this summer?

Sparkly metallic shoes can give an impressive look to any outfit. Choose from glittery gold or shimmering silver or go for a warmer tone of gold.  Gold adds colour to the skin, while silver can be a bit harsh on very pale skin however there are a number of shades to choose from.

Some women feel unsure about which outfit to wear silver or gold shoes with and this can mean not feeling confident about the look so we have come up with some of our favourite colour matches and picked out some celebrities showing off the look.

It is important to match your metallic shoes with your outfit and accessories so it may be better to not go for a sparkly outfit with a pair of diamante shoes.  White looks wonderful with silver shoes, whatever the season and black also works well with silver. You could also opt for a number of other colours including light or dark grey, purple or deep red and dark blue. Check out Nicole Scherzinger in this stunning purple dress and silver strappy sandals.

A classic way to wear silver shoes is with a little black dress and if the event you are attending is glamorous then why not add incorporate a touch of diamante on your silver shoes for that added sparkle.

Gold Evening Shoes

In contrast to silver, if you prefer the sunny warmth of gold, gold shoes go with everything.  They look particularly stunning with black, white, or brown and green.

We think Eva Longoria is beautiful in this chocolate brown ruched dress and gold strappy sandals.

Cate Blanchett

However you don’t have to have the bronzed tone of Eva to wear gold shoes.  As we mentioned earlier, gold is also stunning with very pale skin as shown by the gorgeous Cate Blanchett wearing a fabulous green dress designed by the late and fabulous Alexander McQueen in 2005.

Silver, gold and diamante are a bold look so try to mix them with softer neutral colours and think about keeping your outfit a solid colour rather than lots of patterns leaving the focus on the shoes.
