If you’re looking for versatile accessories that you can wear both now and in summer, metallics are by far your best bet. One of the reasons I love metallics is because they are are one of the few truly seasonless finishes–in fact, my first designer purchase was a gold Gucci bag. Although any color can be made metallic, for purposes of versatility, neutrals are the way to go. So far, I’ve noticed a particular uptick in the availability of metallic shoes for spring.
When it comes to metallic shoes, what makes all the difference between looking cheap and chic is the finish of the metallic leather. When done correctly, everything from embossed metallics to mirrored leather looks expensive, which means these kicks give you a real bang for your buck.
The metallic magic isn’t relegated to shoes, though–a high-shine finish can have the same effect on everything from your makeup look to your outwear. Check out exactly what I’m talking about below.
