Wendy Hind answers your fashion question

Q: I never know whether to wear silver or gold shoes. And can I wear them during the day? Amy – Johannesburg, South Africa

A:  Everyone can wear both silver and gold. If you have to choose between the two then follow this guideline: If you have a softer, paler skin tone then silver works best. If you have a golden or darker skin tone then gold works best. Silver co-ordinates best when worn with cool colours and gold co-ordinates best when worn with warm colours.  Metallic shades can be worn during the day, not as court shoes, but as strappy sandals. Dress them down with a pair of denims and a gorgeous top / jacket and you will look and feel like a million dollars! Flat heels during the day (image on the left) and heels in the evening (image on the right).

    Does the rule of shoe colour being the same or darker than the hemline not apply when wearing gold or silver shoes?

      Thanks for your query Jemmi. The “shoe darker than your hemline” doesn’t apply when wearing gold shoes BUT it is important the overall tone of your outfit still co-ordinates. It is always best to pick up the silver, or the gold, somewhere else in your outfit in order for it to “connect”. Hope this helped : )
