It seems like every season the traditional pump gets a makeover and this year is no exception, metallic pumps seem to  be the “it” shoe trend this year and we just love them. From metallic caps, to metallic studs, the hues of metal are making their way onto our favorite classic heels.  Hollywood stars such as Kristen Bell, Rihanna and Kate Bosworth have been seen on both the streets and the red carpet in fun and sexy metallic heels. As women we tend to instinctively reach for our highest black pumps when we’re getting ready to go out, but this year why not opt for sexy silver, copper or gold shoes instead.

This trend, though bold, can work well for the office environment as well as a fun night out. For work we suggest going with a brushed metallic heel, this finish will dial down the shine factor a little bit.  Pair your brushed metallic pumps with wide leg trousers and a chic bow blouse for an office looks that is sexy and smart. Another great way to wear this trend to work would be to opt for the cap toe metallic pump, this type of shoe is more conservative looking, making it very office appropriate. We recommend pairing the cap toe metallic pump with a pencil skirt and fitted button down top.

Ready to hit the streets in bold, fun and fresh metallic pumps, well here are a few tips to make sure you set your best foot forward.

Metallic shoes should always be scuff free, because the hue will create a mirror effect any scuff or mark will be even more noticeable. Make sure to wipe down your shoes after each wear and store them in the box. This will ensure they are clean and ready the next time you want to wear them.

A cute variation of this trend would be to find shoes with a metallic ankle strap, this look is just as fun but with a bit of a twist that makes it more modern.
