Spring always brings a surge of vibrant color to our lives and, naturally, those bright hues tend to show up in what we wear quite often. Shoes, of course, are no exception. While neutral shoes are on-trend this year and they work well with many looks, you have to admit it’s fun to forget about being sensible once in awhile and go for a pair of wildly colorful shoes, which are always in style when things heat up. You can opt for one bright solid color at a time, which works well, or you can go all-out and get a pair that incorporates a rainbow of colors all in one. Case in point: The Charles David Tangier (pictured above), which I absolutely adore. It’s available at Zappos or Endless for $215 with free shipping. In my mind (or in a figment of my imagination maybe), the classic Rainbow Brite doll would rock these like no one’s business – after getting all grown up and developing a serious love of fashion, of course.
But, seriously, rainbow shoes can actually be quite versatile due to the range of shades you have to work with. Cute summer tops and dresses in simple, solid colors tend to work best, but you can always be creative and mix it up, even with patterns in some cases, for an even bolder fashion statement.
