Imagine this: you're getting ready to go to work or to a fabulous cocktail party and assessing yourself in the mirror. You know your outfit is great but there's just something missing. A spark, a glimmer - that little special something that will take your outfit to a higher level. Introducing your wardrobe to a pair or two gold shoes will probably do the trick. Be it day or night, gold shoes will brighten up any look for any time of the year. Just make sure you don't go over the edge by wearing too many colors or shimmery accessories.
Here are some colors that compliment gold accent colors well:
Marrying black and gold will result in a classic look. Although pairing your gold platform pump with a black bodycon dress spells a night of endless fun, the same gold platform pump can also be appropriate for the office. All you need to do is change the dress to the classic sheath dress. For a casual day out with your favorite girls, wear the same shoes with a black romper or a basic black tank and black skinny or straight jeans.
Look fabulous while going store to store with a comfortable pair of ballet flats worn with black leggings and a solid colored tee or a flowy top. You can also wear this on your way for a relaxing day at the spa.
There's something merry with the white and gold combination. Wear your white jeans with a pair of gold pumps or ballet flats and a red pullover sweater for a family gathering during the winter holidays. For a festive casual Friday at the office, change the sweater with a gold top worn under a black blazer or cardigan.
Wearing fuchsia is a bold statement. Be bolder by wearing the color with a pair of gold shoes. Just make sure that you don't choose a pair that is too heavy like booties or wedges.
Wear your gold gladiator heels with a fuchsia tunic and light denim or white shorts in the summer. If you are having a wedding and your bridesmaids are wearing fuchsia colored gowns, get them to pair their gorgeous gowns with some wispy-strapped stilettos. To pull the entire look together, add some gold accessories like a gold watch, a pair of earrings or simply by having gold trimmings on your clothes.
Weather you're wearing darker blues like navy or lighter ones like aquamarine, gold shoes will bring out the best out of these blue shades. When wearing blue dresses, elongate your legs with a pair of slinky gold heeled sandals. Wear your gold flat gladiators in the summer while strolling along the beach with some blue ensembles like a blue and white bikini-top and denim cutoffs or a sailor-inspired look with a blue skirt and red top.
Teal is the rich and bright derivative of blue. Models Heidi Klum and Chanel Iman have been seen sporting this look. Klum wore her teal knee-length dress with a pair of gold high-heeled sandals while Iman slipped in a teal kaftan and stiletto sandals. When wearing these two color together, opt for supper shiny ones for a glamorous look or for a more subtle day look, choose matte golds. If you're not into heels, wear your teal maxi dress with gold flats or wedges. Like fuchsia, pull off the whole look by adding gold accessories.
I love pairing my gold shoes with browns and this may be very well supported by darker-skinned girls. Although gold shoes will complement any brown outfit, it may look a tad too heavy when paired with the wrong shoes. So stick with gold strappy sandals, pumps or flats. Also do accent the gold colour with gold accessories but do keep them light and at minimal. For instance, if you've already belted your brown dress with a gold chain belt, wear gold studs or hoop earrings instead of gold chandelier earrings.
