Just recently we spoke about smoking slippers, the trendy slip on loafers that are dubbed the new ballerinas, and yet it´s amazing to know that a new cute shoe is sharing the spotlight, if not stealing it – the pump or flat with mod buckles and metallic details.
Because the buckles are usually metallic, all the more that this shoe looks so trendy. As you know, metallic is a hot trend for fall and winter 2012. Its flat version is like a reminiscence of my girly shoes when I was a kid, the days when young girls actually wore cute flat shoes with buckles instead of adult-inspired heels, only that this time, these trending shoes are actually made for grown up girls.
Which Buckled Shoe Are You?
This dark teal/patent pump stole my heart. It´s gold metallic buckle is like a crown on the right shade of color. It´s made for that royalty elegance. It has both the element of simplicity and glam. Quickly add a touch of chicness to a formal wear through a pair of this women’s dazzle pump.
Whether it´s for work, outdoor party or a day spent shopping, this flat in gorgeous flat red will serve your typical ballet flat, only it has more class. Opt for a black shoe to complete your professional work outfit but don´t be afraid to go for colored to finish off more fun, Friday looks. Really, you shold get this shoe in two colors. It´s available in new black red, black patent, and delicious turquoise.
There´s no best way to quickly wear the metallic trend but with this women’s malia flat with buckle detail in metallic lizard print. Wear it with black pieces, little black dress or black shorts and black boyfriend blazer, to really let it shine out.
A gray stone snake print is very much a neutral which means, you can easily wear this snake print flat with gold buckle with literally anything! From desk to after five, this buckled shoe will dress you up in a comfy but stylish way.
I love Calvin Klein´s adaptation of this trend. Taking the hottest print of all the animal prints out there, added a black buckle bearing the brand´s name, while keeping things comfy and stunning. Another neutral, you can either wear this Calvin Klein’s Parkley Pony Flat with bright colors or with other neutrals. When it comes to styling, it´s sky´s the limit.
So tell me girls, what do you think of this shoe trend? Are you trading your favorite ballerinas with a hot shoe featuring mod buckles and metallic details?
