Your lifestyle, your quirk
Shoes, shoes, shoes, and more shoes. Summer 2012 is turning out to be a fabulous season for shoes. New styles and colors just keep coming down the catwalk. There is a big ole bunch of bright colors in the mix, but if you’re not feeling the bright colors, one warm weather color trend for shoes you probably will like is the blush. Blush is a delicate color; it’s similar to nude, but it’s more of a barely-there pink, sort of in between pale pink and champagne. What I like about this color is it’s definitely feminine, but not too over the top girlie. The color is perfect right now and will take us into summer.
What is really nice about the color blush is that it’s flattering on most skin tones and colorings, and it goes well with other neutral colors. Blush also looks nice when it’s paired with more intense colors, along with gold and silver. It’s also a major plus that blush is also a hot color trend for clothing. All the more reason you should consider checking it out if you’re shopping for a new pair of summer shoes.
Don’t let this pale shade scare off you if you’re not used to wearing lighter shoes. This color is a nice change from stark white or basic beige. If you decide to give this lovely color a try, you won’t have a problem finding a style that will blend right into your wardrobe, because every hot shoe trend is available in the color blush. Check out stylish pumps and flats for work, or a pair of sexy stiletto sandals in pretty chiffon or soft suede. If you’re looking for something more casual and trendy, there are funky peep toe boots, wedge shoes, and platforms. The names sending this shoe down the runway are just as diverse as the styles; they run the range from high end like Stuart Weitzman to my new shoe hero, Jeffrey Campbell, to Steve Madden and even more affordable brands.
Blush is also a popular color for bridal parties, so just in case you’re slated to do bridesmaid duty or be a bride yourself this season, there may be life after the wedding for your shoes.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to wear a pair of these shy shoes; just open any fashion magazine to get some ideas. Blush shoes look lovely with an outfit of the same color of course, but also try dressing in all one color to show off your shoes, or coordinate them with your top, bottom, or another accessory like a purse or belt.
