Golden Mary Janes sound like something out of a childhood shoe fantasy, along the lines of ruby red slippers, but no one can say Miuccia Prada doesn’t design for the imaginative little girl in each of us! While styling these highly metallic gilded heels might pose some challenges – I say keep it light in color and texture, ultra-gauzy, and rather simple – they are so liquidy and luscious, it’s hard to draw your eyes away. Although there’s not a gemstone in sight, these are more like foot jewelry than shoes, per se. Think about what an 18-karat gold cuff, hoop earrings, and layered chains do for your tan – these peep-toe Mary Janes will do the same. Make glowing legs gleam with more charm than the setting sun and catch moonlight into the night. At Barneys New York for $650.
Pair with: White and gold is a glamorous and neutral pairing. Make your golden shoes look like something out of fairy tale with Givenchy’s cotton voile dress with empire waist and a softly draped front. At Barneys New York for $899 (from $1,495).
