I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for things to heat up for spring. Although it’s still plenty cold outside and will be for quite awhile, I find that just looking at something sizzling hot can help conjure up a feeling of warmth, even if only for a brief minute. That’s why I’m talking about a fiery new color trend for spring today: orange shoes. I’ve been noticing a lot of orange around lately, most notably on Drew Barrymore in Jil Sander at a recent Cover Girl party and all over the runways, as seen on SheFinds and The Fashion Spot. I’ve always loved orange because it’s such a warm hue and, in it’s brightest form, made for super-high visibility. It also sets off a tan very well, which is always a plus (if you have a tan, that is). But, generally speaking, it’s probably one of the more under-used colors in fashion, especially for footwear. If you want to apply this trend to your shoes, which is is a nice way to add a pop of color in this shade without running the risk of orange overload, you might try one of these pairs:
Nine West Playtag for $79 at Nine West.
Charles David Primp for $230 at Endless.
Mojo Moxy Bollywood for $89.95 at Endless.
Seychelles Gypsy for $54.90 at Endless.
