You Asked, We Answered: How To Wear Silver Shoes

Carla's Q&A Avatar
If you haven't noticed, metallic shoes are everywhere. Whether they're sandals, sparkly TOMS, or 4-inch pumps, reflective footwear is bigger now than disco shoes were in the '80s.
And you, being the fashion maven that you are, dutifully went out and bought a pair. And now you're faced with the inevitable style conundrum: How do you wear them? R29 reader, Amanda C. from Brooklyn asked this very question after purchasing a pair of 4-inch silver heels.
Well, Amanda, the trick is to treat them like a neutral, which gives you endless outfit combinations. I’ve put together four different looks that'll work with silver pumps or any other metallic shoe, ahead.
You can take your staple jeans and T-shirt up a notch with your silver heels. Add a colorful jacket and purse to provide a pop of color and balance the neutrals.

Try out the crop-top trend with a girly skirt. Then pair the outfit with your silver heels to add just the right amount of sparkle.

Your silver heels will pair beautifully with a sleek solid-colored jumpsuit. Add a hat in a similar color to your outfit as the perfect casual touch.

Metallics behave just like neutrals, so they look great paired with prints and florals. Style your silver heels with your favorite cocktail floral dress, add a matching silver clutch, and say hello to date night!
