Leaving behind the tradition of coordinating satin wedding shoes with the tone of a gown, we’re instead drawn to something a little more chic. Inspired by Spring 2017 runway shows, we’re loving understated heels that will be on high rotation long after your wedding day. Seeking a heel that sits outside the realm of “wedding shoes”, yet perfectly complements a contemporary bridal aesthetic, we look to statement metallic shoes to perfectly compliment a bridal look.
Our favourite style of the season are heels with statement straps. We’re drawn to sandals adorned with coral-like crystals or a knot of leather. As statement heels, they add drama to a simple gown. Style this elegant look with tousled waves and a smoky eye, or with a bold jewellery piece in a matching metallic hue.
For a more classic look, we gravitate to an elegant pointed toe, balanced by a cropped hem to elongate the ankle. Simple metallic sandals are the perfect pairing for more detailed gowns. A minimalist sandal will flatter rather than overwhelm an embellished slip or cascading lace gown. When opting for metallic styles we gravitate towards muted coppers, golds and pewters, all hues that will compliment a bridal gown effortlessly.
