This year’s X Factor kicked off this weekend and I’m excited because this, for me, signifies the run up to Christmas! Only 126 sleeps to go! Anyway, I’m also pleased to have the X Factor back on our screens because it’s a great showcase of the latest fashion trends each week. I’ve concentrated on the judge’s footwear that they have been wearing during the auditions and spotted a theme – metallic.
New judge Nicole Scherzinger is clearly head-over-heels for spangly metallic heels and the other judges have followed; Tulisa in her platinum platforms, guest judge Mel B in her strappy silver sandals and even US judge Britney Spears is sporting a pair of metallic bronze peeptoes.
I think this is a wearable trend, as metallic gold, silver and bronze footwear (like nude and black) will generally go with most outfits and add a little extra glamour to turn a daytime outfit into a night-out look. I’ve had a look around the high street and have found a few summer sale bargains remaining (including these from Topshop below) and also some full-price but equally bargainous heels from footwear favourite New Look.
What do you think of this trend? Have you invested in metallics yet? Leave me a comment below 🙂 Grab yours now and you’ll wear them all season – they’ll be great for Christmas, and you know it!
