You'd be forgiven for associating gold shoes with special occasions—who doesn't reach for a pair of strappy metallic heels for a wedding or holiday party? But today's gilded footwear is far more versatile than that: There are gleaming velvet booties you can wear with cropped jeans and a leather jacket, there are high-shine sneakers to pair with lacy dresses, and there are shimmering mules that add a bit of personality to office-friendly blazers and tailored trousers.

Plus, not every shade of gold is a blindingly bright metallic—marigold is one of the most popular colors of the season, and the rich hue pairs beautifully with denim, dusty pink, and even black (it's deep enough that it avoids any of the bumblebee connotations of brighter yellows).
