Bold Evening Shoes that Pop
28 January 2008
Why don’t you put your black pumps away? It’s time to let color wash over you in all ways possible. And that includes below your ankles for your nice evening shoes. What’s hot right now? Taking on the bold color palette for spring. You game?
Valentino has a peep-toe bow slingback in fuchsia (#1) that looks so feminine and I can’t think of a more romantic shoe to slip on for Valentine’s day. The large bow doesn’t seem silly because it’s done simply, with no other details like beading. So this shoe will make a statement, but in a traditional way. These are available from Neiman Marcus for $645.00.
If satin seems more up your alley (and I don’t blame you) you might like the Tribeca by Kenneth Cole “Social Event” Evening Sandal. These caught my eye because of their bold fuchia color. These are available from Macys for $33.18.
D&G Dolce and Gabbana has a violet patent leather slingback (#2) that looks to me as if it’s buzzing with electricity. Stepping into these seem like they’d be the equivalent of downing an espresso and feeling ready to dance. They’re sexy in an inarguable way, so wear them with caution. These are available from Neiman Marcus for $445.00.
I may not like the girl very much, but Jessica Simpson’s shoe label has a very darling (and daring) pair of suede slingbacks, available in the bright colors of ‘Blue Nile’ (#3) or ‘Electric Raspberry’. The Emi slingback is available from Macys for $89.99.
I’ve written in our apparel section about how hot the color yellow is right now. So this would be the best time to pick up a pair of yellow evening shoes. I don’t want to be dramatic but I think I fell in love with these Martine satin heels (#4). They’re made partially from viscose satin in a subdued golden yellow, and have a tiny brass buckle on each. The top features a very neat twisted knot. It reminds me of Kate Hudson’s yellow dress in the movie How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days. It looks so luscious and luxe. I wouldn’t want to overpower these shoes with a yellow dress, but I would wear a citrine gem necklace or earrings, to bring out the yellow theme in an ensemble. The Martine heels are available from J-crew for $235.00.
If you have great legs then you should draw attention to them. Baring your legs in a skirt or dress and then wearing an eyecatching pair of heels is really going to pull the focus on them.
I think I’m going to go watch that movie now. 🙂
