QTips: Picking the Right Shoe to Match Yellow

It's safe to say that Spring is officially here and Summer is appraching full speed. May not take a rocket scientist to know this now, but due to the cold, wind and rain, it may take more that a meteorologist to figure this out in 2011. No matter who tells you, go on and believe that the pastels and bold colors of warm weather are now permissable to wear. Yellow will be one of the main colors of Spring and Summer, and though the color is in high supply and demand, finding the right shoe may be difficult.

TREND ALERT!  Leather bows are HOT HOT HOT!  Get familiar!

1. Go Nude! Nude is the absolute best option for yellow, and essentially the hottest color of the season. If you go nude, do it with a pump; nude sandals are OK but not as sleak and effective, unless its a wedge. (QTip: A nude shoe can be kind of boring; so try to go with a metallic heel, or even a stacked heel with character, like the Fendi FF Superstar Patent Pump pictured above)

2. Put a Cork in It! Cork, like nude, is super neutral and perfect for warm weather. The best part, is that cork supports the airy, light shapes of sandals, so if you want your foot exposed, go with an espadrille or a corked heel sandal.  (QTip: Make sure the shoe's upper is metallic or in the nude/flesh family)

3. Go White! Memorial Day is noly a few days away, so you're close enough! A nice classic pair of white leather loafers would look great with some yellow pants for a weekend nautical look.

4. Heavy Metal - Metallic shoes will offer shine to yellow as well as mute the brightness of the hue.

5. Walk on the Wild Side! Animal print adds spice and acts as a neutral when paired against any hue of yellow. (Tip, if you go with a leopard print, make sure the shoe has some gold hardware, such as the buckle on the Tory Burch Celina Pumps pictured above)
