4 metallic sandals under $75
Fashion experts across the board agree: One of the biggest shoe trends for the summer of 2015 is metallic sandals.
They’re airy, lightweight and free, yet the metallic hue gives them a burst of edginess and glam that makes them appropriate even for a nice night out.
Runway styles can cost you an arm and a foot. Here are our four favorite ways to wear metallic sandals, all under $75.
1. Espadrilles and wedges
Don’t limit your definition of sandals to flip-flops and beach gear. These metallic gold Steve Madden wedges are on sale right now for 40 percent off, putting their price at less than $50. The 4-inch heel (on a 1 ¼-inch platform) combined with a gold hue gives these comfortable, summer shoes an air of sexy sophistication.

2. Super simple and sleek
Metallic doesn’t have to be garrish. For just a hint of shine, these minimalist sandals pull in a metallic accent on the bow. The thong strap and flat sole makes these sandals an easy accessory perfect for the beach or a casual summer BBQ.
Along with the minimalist design, these are minimal on your pocketbook: about $20. Haley Metallic Bow Sandals, $19.99 (plus .5% Cash Back), target.com
3. Elegant and feminine
Whereas wedges offer height with a bit of sass, a sweet kitten heel is a feminine spin on a dress shoe. These bronze Easy Street heels at Kohl’s, accented by a delicate bow and rhinestone, are a no-fail way to bring metallic to a formal occasion. At under $55, they’re an incredible price for an elegant accessory. Easy Street Starlet Dress Sandals, $54.99 (plus limited time 4% Cash Back), kohls.com
