It's going to be another summer of shimmer, with most of the high-end designers turning out shoes that are made from metallic, glittery or otherwise shiny materials, bucking the trend that bling is only a festive trend. And I say who can blame them? The sun has certainly let us down on the shining front these last few summers, so why not re-create the look of summer in our clothes?

There is no hard and fast 'rule' about whether the metallic shades lean towards the silver or gold end of the spectrum - with plenty of room for colourful variations on both in-between. It's just all about the shimmer, whether it's a complete foily leather shoe or an embellishment or detail here or there with a splash of glitter or shine.
