Details, Details: Shine, Sandals, Shine!
King Midas certainly had his way with Spring/Summer 2014 collections, from Zac Posen to Proenza Schouler. But the Greek god’s notoriously liberal touch was remarkably restrained when he set his sights on footwear. Instead of heel-to-toe monochromatic lustre, the glitz factor of the season’s hottest sandals comes from statement-making metallic embellishments.
Some of spring 2014’s hottest gold footwear details take inspiration from old school armour. The gold-plated V-strap has the air of newlymade miniature shield, while the gold hammered-metal plating on the main strap looks like it has chicly triumphed on battlefields. Channel fashion icons from Diane Kruger to Rachel Bilson while rocking this day-to-night sandals with everything from denim cut-offs to flirty mullet skirts.
The bangle-inspired gidled cross bar detail on the ankle strap gives the shoe its elegant, feminine vibe. The bow-shaped metallic accoutrements make the orange-hued shoe capable of dressing up clam diggers for boardwalk strolls and dressing down LBDs for nights on the town. Think like Miranda Kerr and make the most of your maxi dresses and sexy onesies by pairing them with this chic flat with a dash of glimmer. It’s your golden ticket to never being underdressed.
