Gold Flat Shoes by Jenn Ardor
These Jenn Ardor metallic shoes are perfect for adding some sparkle to your closet (or shoe rack to be more precise). The toe area has a wide design for a better fit and the chain gives them a classic, retro look offering a juxtaposition. You can visit the Jenn Ardor Amazon Store to find out more.


White & Black 
These two neutral colours work so well with gold. You could go for a white tee or shirt and pair it with some black leggings. The gold shoes spice the outfit up and they add in a little glamour. Alternatively, you can pick one colour, this would make the shoes stand out more, especially with black.

Cream monochrome
Cream is another great colour that matches with gold because it's so similar. It looks great with a skirt or you could add a pair of tailored cream pants that are folded over and are cut just above the ankle.

Go denim
Jeans look great... well with most things, but they work well with gold. White jeans are great for summer or you could go for a light denim. Alternatively, for a cute girly look you could wear them with a pinafore dress.

Add an anklet
If you have a bare ankle you can add a little detail with an anklet. It doesn't even have to be an anklet, you could also buy adjustable friendship bracelets and wear them as an anklet. (The keyword here is anklet.) This would give the look more of a boho feel.


Shorts & Shirt
Another great combo is a pair of stone washed denim shorts and a slouchy shirt. This creates a smart casual summer look, great for doing some boutique shopping.

Cute skater skirt
You don't always have to go for jeans or trousers, these shoes look great with skirts too. You can go with a print to add that extra visual interest to the outfit.

Add some funky socks
You could go for some clashing patterned socks, you know... it's different. These also look great with a pair of white ankle socks with a folded over rim.

More gold 
If you really feel like pushing the boat out, pick a full gold outfit. This one would be great for a night out. Go for a gold body-con dress and add in the shoes. This is great if you only want to murder the dance floor and not your feet in heels.


Oversized shirt
This one is another idea to add in a little glamour. You can wear a large shirt and pull it in at the waist by adding in a sparkly belt. See my previous make-shift shirt dress look here.

A smart-casual look 
These could even be great for a meeting, just add a pair of smart pants and a blazer in neutral colours. You can finish the look off with some gold jewellery, this will make sure everything is tied in.

A jumper dress
This is more of a fall outfit. When the nights get cooler, wear a cream sweater dress. The gold shoes will make it pop, add in a gold bag to complete the effect.
