Keep it Simple

Yes, despite the colors and happenings on your shoes you surely can still keep your overall fashion ensemble simple. Stick with neutrals and keep your outfit on the safe side by wearing white top, black skinny jeans and black or nude blazer. This will keep the attention on the pumps or a pair of suede ankle boots for everyone to notice your latest fashion find. Add an accessory or a bag with a complementing color with your shoes and you’re good to go.

Highlight One Color

When it comes to pairing your color blocked shoes to your clothes, it is important to focus on one color out of your shoe to pair with your dress or shirt. If you’re wearing a color block shoe with a dominant blue in them, pair it up with complementing shades of light blue tops and then go easy with black or white pants. Use the other shades of your shoes as the color of accessories so it can look more organized and uncluttered.

Go all white

Absolutely the best way to let the colors of your shoes shine is by wearing white as the base color of your clothes. Since white is always on the rise, you surely can’t go wrong with white dress. Glam it up by color blocking your accessories from bags, ankle boots, necklaces and earrings. Just make sure that the colors of your accessories go together so you can form a complete look that can stand out from the rest.

Don’t Associate Two Dark Colors

Since color blocking is all about living it up and enjoying the colors of spring, please avoid combining two dark shades of colors like brown and black or navy blue and black. If it cannot be avoided, look for a shoe that at least one bright color and other solid hue. This way, they can create a smooth contrast that can look good no matter what you wear.

Choose a color depending on your mood

Fashion is mostly about expressing yourself so use this opportunity to express your mood in a colorful way. Go for a nature inspired look with earth colors like green, brownish red, and warm orange or go energetic and wild with pastel colors such as pink, mint green and yellow. Just experiment and see what color works best for your skin tone.

Wearing color blocked shoes can be fun and enjoyable. If you’re a little shy about drawing too much attention to your outfit, you can keep your colors down and simple. But I hope you won’t miss the excitement of walking down the street with all the confidence knowing you are wearing color blocked shoes in a gorgeous and fashionable way.
