Silver Mine

Earlier this week, at an author reading, I spied a woman wearing a spectacular pair of silver sandals. It’s chilly in NYC so she wore them with tights — I was mesmerized. I hadn’t twigged the metallic trend and I rarely go for silver, but at that moment, it looked so right. A pair of silver Belgian Shoes are on their way to me. They could be perfect with trim, cropped black trousers and a black sweater when entertaining at home.

  • This is so timely, I have a pair of silver sandals I was thinking about getting rid of because I haven’t wore them in more than a year. But now I think I will hold on to them a little longer.

  • I am so intrigued by this! Were they black tights or nude tights? I know Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t everyone’s style, but she has a way of mixing unexpected tights and sandals that always seem to just work on her. Here is a combination I pictured when reading your post. Also, I’m going down a rabbit hole after seeing all of the love for Belgian Shoes on your recent Instagram post. Marcheline Isabelle

  • I have a pair of silver prada criss cross sandals with a block heel that i will now be wearing with black tights! Thanks for reminding me!

  • Her tights were black, I’d try grey.

  • All of this!! Wear only silver and have two sentimental bracelets that are permanently attached. I saw a small Prada tote in silver that is haunting my dreams right now. Would love to see your Belgians with grey tights, sounds chic.

  • I recently bought silver sneakers at Hermes – their ‘Trail’ sneaker – and had buyer’s remorse immediately after. It was like aluminum foil silver. Then slowly started wearing them with all black or all navy pants and a turtleneck and they’re starting to grow on me. Seeing this post is a sign!

  • I’m wearing my silver platform oxfords with everything. Because the are reflecting the colors and light around them, they are reading anything from bright silver to dark metallic grey.

  • Love this and so happy I kept my silver Kate Spade ballet flats with the toe bows.
    Thanks once again for the inspiration !

  • Those Ferragamo sandals❤️ Perfect with or without tights.
    I must be the only one who detests those Belgians. The cut of them is so unflattering to anyone who doesn’t have delicate ankles.

  • I do love silver, but dark tights with sandals? Good for some, not for me…

  • Love the idea of the silver Belgians!

  • Just picked up a pair of Ferragamo Vara in silver glitter at Nordstrom Rack yesterday. Thinking about wearing it with black trim pants and plaid top for casual get togethers.

  • I like the concept of a silver sandal with a black tight, or even better, a pair of gray tights, but I just can’t pull the trigger on that look. (hey, the Sharon’s agree!) I’ve seen sandals styled with opaque tights or fine socks under midi-skirts, and when it’s a dark shoe with a dark sock I’m with you.
    I’m just too much of a coward to rock a metallic sandal! Go forth brave ladies! I’ll cheer you from the sidelines!
