haute holiday dressing Part 3: Gold Shoes

In Blogs by Yvette Estime

Gold is the latest “it” color of the season and with the recovering recession; people would want to show their need to return to the glamorous life. For us Americans, it means excess, excess, and excess! Gold stands for “luxury” so stare in the face of poverty and darn some gold this season. All gold accessories are in style but we have to focus on the hardest accessory to find: shoes!!!

Gold shoes can float three ways: modern, overly sexy or special occasion. What you should be looking for this season is special occasion or modern. Modern should be something close to your own style while special occasion should be party wear only. So if you are looking for modern shoes then:

  • Casual wearers should wear gold sneakers.
  • Classic wearers try gold pumps.
  • Punk wearers try to get shoes with gold accents but not full on gold. Opt for gold studs instead rockers.
  • Romance or Vintage wearers should opt for ballet flats.
  • Glams go for glitter accented heels.

We really don’t have as much time to focus on style since this is a get it for less post so let’s focus on special occasion gold shoes.
