Chicago is known for its Indian summers. Just this past week it was well into the mid 90s! As I have been observing the fashions around campus, most people are still in their summer gear. So, I think the perfect pair of metallic sandals is a must have item in this pre-fall season.
I spotted this Fashionista on campus pairing her metallic sandals with a colorful romper. Metallic sandals are great with outifis with bright colors because they tone down the overall brightness of the oufit. This fashionista is also wearing metallic triangular earrings and a metallic ring to tie her look together. Aside from this paticular outfit the fashionista could use her metallic sandals and jewelry for many other outfits.
Anything metallic has great versatility. They look great with bright colors, like this Fashionista is wearing, but they can also be paired with neutral colors, dark colors or even patterns. The metallic texture of the sandal allows you to dress it up or down. If you want to give your feet a rest, then use them as a substitute for your heels and pair them with a dress or pencil skirt. They also look great with a pair of jeans and shorts and you can keep it totally casual!
The metallic sandal trend will continue on into the fall with an added twist: a heel. Fashion influential celebs such as model Hilary Rhoda and Revenge‘s Ashley Madekwe have already been seen wearing metallic sandals at recent red carpet events.
