Metallic Mirrored Leather Sandals
Mirrored leather bags have been making the rounds since Summer of 2013, but this season is all about mirrored leather shoes. Simply put, mirrored leather is the effect you get when you treat leather that is already metallic with a high-shine patent layer on top.
Futuristic and fabulous, this high shine trend flips all the rules on their head. They are metallic, summery, sporty, modern and quirky all at the same time. You don't necessarily have to opt for gold or silver, from luxury to high-street, a host of brands are carrying these shoes in delightful pastel colours. As you can see I've got mine in blue.
When you think of metallic leather; all that gloss immediately lends to evening wear; so I decided to present this trend in its most casual avatar. Wore this look to go sit and work at the neighbourhood cafe. The tunic is a bit frumpy but so comfy and looks super cute with the micro floral print. Fell in love with these sandals from Opening Ceremony and just had to add them to my growing shoe collection; so everything about this look is the shoes.
The shape is the popular grunge sandals from Opening Ceremony with the signature traction heel and chunky platform. They have a blue calf leather upper, rubber sole and a buckle fastener on the side. They a bit heavy but super comfortable.
Go ahead get your shine on for summer...
