Is it just me or does the imminent arrival of spring make you want to add some colour to your wardrobe. Blue sky and sunshine gets me thinking about all things colourful…especially SHOES!
My shoe collection is already pretty colourful but it doesn’t ever stop me dreaming about (and buying) more …
There are so many gorgeous colours and styles to choose from at the moment but if you are the type of person that likes to make your shopping experience easy then NEXT have most things covered when it comes to adding some colour to your feet. Their ‘Brands At NEXT’ selection also offers a great choice of colour.
Those of you that follow me on Instagram will already know that I fell in love with their Signature Ruffle suede styles in a vibrant pink and gorgeous denim blue shade earlier this year – I couldn’t resist! They have certainly come up trumps again when it comes to adding colour to their latest spring collection!
I’ve picked out a selection from their current range and added a few helpful tips to get you started on what to wear with them. Once you’ve started wearing coloured shoes you’ll soon see that your black ones start to gather dust!
Red shoes add interest to any outfit and can be as versatile as any black or neutral coloured shoe. If you don’t already own a pair, do, and then you’ll wonder why you waited so long to get them. Avoid wearing red shoes with a red outfit… if you’re wearing red shoes you really do want them to stand out! Red looks particularly great with navy, white, grey, denim and black. I adore red with stripes, so if you’re a stripe obsessive like me you’ll have no problem in making red shoes work for you too. (Image via Pinterest)
What better way to bring any blue outfit to life than adding it’s complimentary colour, orange, to the mix. Worn with blue, the vibrancy of the orange is accentuated and creates an eye catching outfit.
Make your own sunshine! Yellow is such a happy, cheerful colour and people love to see yellow. You can’t go wrong wearing yellow shoes especially if you are pairing them with blue or white. You only have to look at the image above (via Pinterest) to see that yellow and denim are another match made in heaven. For a really fresh look try pairing yellow with green!
Ignore the ‘Blue and Green should never be seen’ myth … they work wonders together! Try Dark blue denim twinned with a navy and white Breton stripe or crisp white blouse and then add green shoes. It’s simple but will look effortlessly stylish! . (Image via Pinterest)
You really can’t go wrong with blue shoes, they look great with neutrals, black, white … in fact the list is almost endless but the the thing to avoid is trying to match your clothing exactly to the shade of your shoes. Blue shoes work best when worn with a shade or two darker or a total opposite.
Whether it’s a vibrant pink or a softer blush tone, pink is on trend. A soft pale pink pair can become the new neutral in your wardrobe, that goes with so many different looks. Alternatively, go vibrant and choose a stronger pink as a statement. When wearing prints that contain pink trying wearing a pink shoes that will really emphasise the colour of the print.
Coloured shoes are definitely a ‘must have thing for spring’!
Happy Shopping! xx
