The Best Metallic Shoes for Every Style Type

Are you itching to literally and figuratively dip your toes into metallic shoe territory but not sure where to start? As always, one approach is to think what pairs best with your overall style. Whether you’re into dressing classically, eclectically, or more like a minimalist, there are certain metallic shoe types that might suit you better than others, and we’ve rounded them up here today. See what we think works best for you below, read about why, and—of course—shop our picks.

If Your Style Is… Classic

Does it get more timeless than simple heeled sandals and pumps? Based on your outfit, one of the two is definitely the perfect metallic shoe style for you.

If Your Style Is… Trend-Forward

If you love to be trend-forward, we actually have two rather different options for you because, quite frankly, we were torn. If you're a more casual-trendy girl, we've got the metallic dad sneakers, and if you're more inclined to dress up, PVC sandals are the look for you. If you like both, well, you're our kind of trendsetter.

Available in Italian sizes 37 to 40.

If Your Style Is… Minimalistic

Think of metallic mules as a minimalist's rebellion. While they retain simple and sleek silhouettes in both closed-toe and sandal form, they're just a hint more exciting than a basic black pair.

If Your Style Is… Elegant

Whether you opt for a sandal or closed-toe style, even in metallic colors it doesn't get more elegant than slingbacks.

If Your Style Is… Eclectic

If your style is eclectic, then we know you can handle pieces that might be more extra than others. So, why stop at metallic? Go for something that's embellished or glittery to make an even bigger statement.
