What To Wear With Gold Flats
As the outfits above and below demonstrate, metallic gold flats are a lot more versatile than you may think. Wear with complementary hues of brown and beige for a toned down look, or with white and black bottoms when you really want them to stand out. The only rule is to not wear gold flats with bright red, as that is one look best left inside Buckingham palace.

Let the trainers be the star of the show by wearing them with black skinny jeans or leggings, a black cami and a black blazer or biker jacket. This look is guaranteed to turn heads for all the right reasons and is so easy to replicate with your existing wardrobe.
