Shoe Buzz: Fergie rocks neon shoes + one of her own styles
*Update* This post is from 2009. See the latest posts on neon shoes for more.
Fergie created some buzz recently at the 34th Annual March of Dimes Beauty Ball with her newly dark hair and her super-bright neon orange and black Jimmy Choo Loop sandals. The look is certainly edgy and totally rock ‘n’ roll, so it begs the question: Is neon emerging as a trend once again this year? People Style Watch says yes – they list neon as one of the top spring trends in their March 2009 edition. Even so, some people may shy away from neon because of its potential to go terribly wrong (like those squint-inducing 80’s get-ups), but the look can also be oh-so-right (like this hot style from Mary-Kate Olsen last year). The trick to wearing neon, as you’ve probably heard before, is to keep it minimal and pair it with neutrals to avoid color overkill. Think black, white and tan with a pop of bright neon for maximum impact. If you’re ready to work this trend, here are some hot-hued styles to try:
Left to right: Guess Innocent for $109.95 at Zappos, Davis by Ruthie Davis Pixel for $235.48 at Amazon, Luichiny Que for $112 at Shoes.com after 20% off ENTSHOES09 coupon code, Farylrobin Poppy Platform for $229.95 at Endless, Rocket Dog Neon Sandal for $29.50 at Delias after $10 off DXCGIFT coupon code (exp. 3/31), Wet Seal Patent Buckle Sandal for $12.50 at Wet Seal, Guess Carrie for $73.60 at Shoes.com after ENTSHOES09 coupon code or at Guess.com for $90 (additional sizes in yellow) or at Heels.com for $84.99, DV by Dolce Vita Damsel for $66.95 at Amazon
In related shoe news, Fergie was spotted wearing one of her own styles, the Fergie Pepper Platform Sandal, at a Nordstrom event to promote her shoe line. This is a hot style that you can find at Nordstrom, but also at Shoes.com for a better price. They have it for $129, but it’s reduced to $103.20 after using coupon code ENTSHOES09 at checkout. Shipping is free and other color options include purple and brown.
