There’s a new shining star on the scene: metallic shoes. While they do add whimsy and originality to an outfit, they’re surprisingly versatile. Metallic mocs tie glam and casual comfort together beautifully, enabling you to seamlessly move from day to night. If you’re not sure where to start, think of metallics like neutrals. They’re a solid starting point to build a dreamy outfit, so don’t be shy about glowing from head to toe. Check out the many ways to wear this easy and stylish look.
1. Rock n’ Roll
Metallics coordinate well with a rock-inspired look. Grab your favorite concert T-shirt and combine with joggers. Carry a bag with hardware elements.
2. Business Casual
Liven up the workplace with your gleaming shoes. Wear with fitted jeans, a blazer, and a statement necklace.
3. Heavy Metal
Layer your metallics. Pair your shoes with a metallic tank. Don’t worry about matching the two together perfectly. Silver shoes and a gold or rose gold top will look smashing.
4. Floral Fantasy
To sweeten up your shiny shoes, mix with a floral pattern. Try a floral-print dress, skirt, shorts, or even a tropical top.
5. White Out
Try this fresh look for a night out. Combine your metallic shoes with a white mini dress or sleek white jumpsuit.
6. Glitter & Grunge
Create a modern spin on a grunge-inspired look by mixing metallic shoes with distressed skinny jeans, loose T-shirt, and flannel jacket.
7. Chambray Chic
Like metallic mocs, a chambray shirtdress is casual yet fashionable enough to wear on multiple occasions. Dress the look up with a chunky gold bracelet or gold watch.
Layer a skater skirt over black tights and complete the outfit with your metallic shoes. Wear with a long-sleeved blouse for work or a cropped top for an evening look.
9. Back in Black
If you are really looking to make your shoes stand out, pair them with an all-black outfit. Wear with a black blouse and black fitted pants or black trouser shorts.
10. Cozy Comfort
For colder weather, match with leggings and an oversized sweater. With comfy metallic mocs, this cozy ensemble will be a go-to staple.
11. Short Circuit
Try this electrifying look. Wear your modern metallics with denim shorts. To balance the materials, wear with a pretty, billowy white blouse.
12. Seeing Red
You can pull off this unexpected combo and the flashy colors by keeping the pieces classic. Mix your metallic shoes with red pants and a black sheer/lightweight blouse. Pull hair back in a topknot and complete with a stylish black handbag.
13. Tropic Thunder
For this bright and breezy outfit, find a romper in a lightweight fabric. Choose a tropical color like coral, lemon, lime, or hot pink and mix with silver shoes.
14. Boyfriend Jeans
Show off your shoes by cuffing a pair of boyfriend jeans. Complete the relaxed look with a solid top and fashionable shades.
15. Leather Makes it Better
Leather and metallics go well together. Both have a lux sheen and elevate street style. Pair your metallic shoes with black leather pants and a buttoned top or slouchy T-shirt.
