Red Carpet to Real World: The Summer 2014 Yellow Pump Trend

Posted on June 30, 2014

The world of the red carpet often finds itself creating these intense little micro-trends, mainly because there’s a finite number of stylists working this gig and they all tend to pull from the same sources and resources. So if one of them lands on a yellow pump as the perfect summertime accessory, then you can bet a lot more of them will be following suit very shortly. It’s like middle school that way.

Yea-Nay-Yellow-Pumps-Shoes-Trends-Celebrities-Red-Carpet-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-(0)

Sometimes these trends are fabulous and sometimes they’re hideous, but regardless of the quality or level of chicness, we always wind up bitching about them because it’s our jobs to we get so tired of looking at them. We went through an intense period of hating the silly putty-colored pump on the red carpet, which prompted a whole bunch of “But I love my neutral pumps!” missives from distraught kittens. It wasn’t that we hated the silly putty pump per se; it was the ubiquity of it that got old quick. In fact, we think most women who care about such things should have at least one pair of neutral shoes close to her skin tone.

But we’re not here to talk about invisible, skin-colored shoes, darlings. We’re all about the lemon/banana/egg yolk- colored footwear today, since that seems to be all the rage at the mo.

Let’s go shopping, ladies. Is this a trend you think you’d ever indulge in? Do any of these styles make your skirt twirl? Not that we have any desire to wear them, but we’re loving the Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu and Chelsea Paris the most. The Kate Spade and Chinese Laundry ones are also pretty diggable.

Pick a favorite. Try one on. You know you want to.

    • CPK1

      I would, although personally would prefer a pointy toe flat. But if I were a high heel wearer, definitely the Kate Spades

    • MarissaLG

      Last summer I bought a pair of bright yellow flats. As a New Yorker who lives in all black, I thought they’d serve as a great pop of color. I never wear them. So sure, if I had anything resembling a “shoe budget” maybe I’d snag a pair, but for someone who has to think about practicality, both in finance and fashion, I’m gonna pass.

      • Constant Reader

        Same here. It’s one of those things I like the idea of but would never end up wearing — partly because New Englanders are notorious for not being fashion-y and for letting you know if they think you look stupid. So yeah. I’m 51 years old and peer pressure enters into my decision. Sigh…

    • TM

      I’m all for it. I totes see how it could elevate a more basic summer dress.

      Could someone get me a pair of pumps? Also, teach me how to walk in pumps…

      • smayper

        I share your problem, plus pain when I wear them, sigh. I dream about beautiful heels that were secretly sneakers on the inside. Like the Room of Requirement, if you know your Harry Potter.

        • TM

          Ahhh, I personally never wear sneakers. (I even aim for workouts that don’t allow shoes just because I can’t deal with them.) I love the comfort of slipping on flats. It’s probably because I’m annoyingly tall and I just having gotten over that preteen gawkiness enough to rock heels.

          Oh and don’t worry–I def know my Harry Potter. Like, the nerdy stories I could tell than scream into a pillow for admitting… (Also, I know tons of ladies rock those Nike Air/Cole Haan ones, but let’s be real–pretty they are not.)

    • Thomas

      I think this micro-trend for yellow pumps is a bright spot in the current War on Color.

      • demidaemon

        Good point.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      I like the Nina Culver, Miu Miu, and Chelsea Paris. I would wear them, though the Nina Culver would be tough to style with that satin. I actually have a pair of semi-dressy bright yellow peep-toe flats I’ve been wearing for years that never fail to bring in a few compliments. The thing is, they have to be deployed discriminately. In the photos above I would say the first is an acceptable use, the second is great, and the last is too matchy. Hyper-saturated yellow is not a color one sees a lot of in fashion, and it will get old so quickly.

      • MasterandServant

        I wore the Culvers in my wedding a few years back- but in Kelly Green. They were super comfy!

    • FibonacciSequins

      I would wear out the Miu Miu kitten heels. Also love the D&G suede pumps although they’d have to be for decorative purposes, rather than practical.

    • mmebam

      I love this trend! Love the Miu Miu and Culver. Nine West is what I would most likely get, as they’re my go to “I need shoes!” place.

    • hughman

      Yellow is typically known as a tough color to pull off, especially for what it does to skin tones. So if one must indulge in yellow, I’d think keeping it as low and far away from the face as possible would be ideal.

      • Sarah

        Yeah I saw a really pretty yellow blouse at Macy’s this weekend and I said to my GF “whattya think -” and before I could say “of this” she said “No, you’d look ghastly in that.” Ouch, but that’s why you bring your girl with you, isn’t it.

        • Thomas

          One of the few people yellow really sings on is Lupita of course!

        • marlie

          That’s why you show with someone who isn’t afraid to tell the Truth.

          • Sarah

            Of Course. Later on in the trip, I had to break it to her about a lace dress, because she thought it was too tight and maybe she could go up a size, and I said “Size is not the problem. That’s a weird ass dress.”

            • demidaemon

              That goes without saying with lace dresses. But good on you for laying down the Truth.

        • hughman

          I can’t shop with someone else. I shop like a Ninja. I go in knowing what I want, find it and am not interested in anyone else’s opinion about it. Or if I am “just looking” I can scan a store in 60 seconds and know exactly what appeals to me. I don’t even try it on. I’d try not dealing with salepeople because as a store manager, I’d start mentally critiquing their technique. (I wasn’t quite as bitchy as I sound, just on a mission.)

          • Sarah

            I don’t try on either. The things that don’t fit: that’s what Ebay is for (also, I know what fits me for the most part from looking). I loathe dressing rooms with a fiery passion. I do shop with my girl all the time, though – it’s kind of our way of hanging out now that we’re both In Relationships and can’t go out bar hopping anymore ;)

      • random_poster

        I have an aunt who possesses a sophisticated European flair in both her looks and demeanor. She’s died her hair jet black for decades, has a milky white complexion because she’s stayed out of the sun, and I’ve never seen her without make-up–think Dita von Teese at age 65. She wears yellow like it was created for her.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        When I was a child who ran around outside a lot, and therefore had a light natural tan and golden blonde hair, I rocked a lemon yellow. Haven’t attempted it since I was about 13 though. It’s good on Swedish tennis players and some darker skinned women and that’s about it.

        • Sarah

          Yeah that’s funny. I was a kid in Florida and as tan as my pasty arse can be with a tow head. My mom was forever dressing me in pastels – yellow included, but it’s like I morphed into a whole different human after puberty. A human that belongs in dark colors.

      • didgerdoni

        Agreed. As someone who eschews the sun—not because of its damaging power, but because it’s fucking hot out there—I never fully realize just how yellow my pale-pink complexion is until I put on something in that shade and am instantly camouflaged. I’d rock a yellow shoe in a heartbeat, though, if I weren’t working from home in my yoga pants.

      • SportifLateBoomer

        I’m with you, yellow is not my friend. I like it in small doses and away from my face. A little better when I’m tan.

        That being said, I’m digging the Jimmy Choos and the Miu Miu kitten heels (expensive taste). The Ninas are hideous and old-lady; I also like the Nine West. Lately the brand is my go-to for style at a great price.

        Probably wouldn’t wear in any case, since it all reminds me of Easter clothing from when I was a kid. And in patent, kinda looks cheap.

      • TeacherH

        Just today I read on a historical fashion website that yellow was considered a flattering color for centuries because it made people look paler. From the Dreamstress: “First, what we consider flattering today is often not what was considered flattering historically. I’ve heard a lot of people say that yellow ‘washes me out’, and that’s kind-of true: yellow can make a lot of skin tones look lighter. But up until the 1920s, lighter, paler, and less tanned was better. Yellow is often cited as a flattering colour in 19th century fashion literature, when tanning was definitely not the thing.”

        • smayper

          Thank you for the fashion history! I love learning things like that, and I retain them so much better than battles and legislation. Things like food and fashion are not frivolous (unintentional alliteration, sorry) — they communicate the essence of how people lived and thought about themselves.

    • Sarah

      I like both the Ninas because 1. Peep toe and 2. Butter, not citrus.

    • Tanya Wade

      Of all the colors I simply cannot wear, yellow is No. 1. Having said that, the style of the Miu Miu kittens is lovely. I’ll take them in black, chocolate brown or navy, though.

    • MilaXX

      I like the yellow shoe better than the Barbie pink shoe that happened for a nano – second. Yellow feels summery and unlike pink still grown up. I have quibbles with suede yellow shoes, but any of the shoes posted above could work with the right look. Of the 3 examples you show I like the yellow shoe with both Diane and America’s looks. (I have issues with Diane’s bag and the fit of America’s dress, but that’s a different story.)

      • marlie

        I lurve the shoes that America is wearing.

    • kimmeister

      I like the Chelsea Paris ones the most. I like the shape and shade of yellow of the D&G, but not rendered in suede. Simple texture and shapes are the best for me in yellow, since the color is already the star.

      • Heather

        Those Chelsea Paris ones are gorgeous. I love them a lot.

    • random_poster

      Yellow as a summer pop of color is spot on. Those Miu Miu’s are gorgeous.

    • Miranda Reseigh

      I’m firmly in the skin color group known as “ashen pale.” Put me in yellow and my skin turns corpse colored. No lie, it’s scary and dramatic. Jewel tones forever!!!

      • Karen Belgrad

        I’m in the “pale olive” family and yellows and orange always bring Barbara Hershey’s voice saying “You look like a corpse” to mind!

      • Sarah

        Amen.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      “Is this a trend you think you’d ever indulge in?” – I did, in the mid 80s. So I don’t think I can do it again, although a hybrid of the Miu Miu kitten heels and the Kate Spade mock croc might get me to change my mind.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      I dig the Vaneli for Jildor for being a reasonable height, seemingly chafe free. and not having a fake wooden heel (I am looking at you, Nine West.)

      Next to black and red, the color of shoe I have most in my closet is yellow (one pair was bought at K-Mart – let’s keep that internet secret, ok?). It just brings certain outfits to another level.

    • Tami from Seattle

      Kitten heels please!

    • Zeee

      I think yellow is a jarring color and it only looks good as an accent. I wouldn’t wear yellow shoes except maybe flat sandals or flip flops with something VERY casual.

    • decormaven

      Banana boats….

    • sienna elm

      oh – I’d like a pair of the Nina Culver d’Orsay’s please – in three different colours!

    • LisaS

      I LOVE the Mui Mui kitten heel. I would totally wear those (or the closest pair I can get under $100).

    • RescueMe23

      The only ones I could ever visualize myself reaching for in a shoe store are the Giuseppe Zanotti’s. Otherwise, its easier to just color my feet with yellow highlighters and go barefoot.

    • Grumpy Girl

      I do wear yellow, and I got a new yellow polka dot dress that is calling for some cute yellow shoes, so I am looking. I’m looking at those Nina’s with desire . . . although I will end up with whatever I find that fits, from the thrift store, because my budget, it is not friendly for those things that go with a limited number of items.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        I am imagining a Grumpy Girl in head-to-toe yellow. “I am so angry about my sunny outlook on life!”

        • Grumpy Girl

          LOL. You likely have a good point. I am amazingly good natured when not made grumpy. Damn kids. Damn coworkers. Damn job.

    • Gatto Nero

      Um … no.

    • KendraMR

      The Mui Mui and the croc print Kate Spade for me, please.

    • snarkykitten

      Nope, my skin tone is too weird for yellow.

      • smayper

        I read that and looked at your profile pic and laughed out loud.

        • snarkykitten

          orange and yellow clash so awfully!

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      I bought a pair of peep-toe flats in bright yellow. I thought they were so pretty but I find I hardly wear them. Somehow they make me think of the smiley-face yellow and that makes me feel like I am punctuating my outfit with kitsch. I’m a little too old for that. I dunno. Maybe if they were pumps I would feel differently. I especially like them on America F.

    • LeelaST

      Really, really hate yellow, but I love the Chinese Laundry suede kitten heels and the color looks goldish – so those are mine!

    • marlie

      Does this mean that I’m a fashion-forward bitter kitten?!? I’ve had a pair or yellow peep-toe pumps from Nine West (that look sort of like the Guiseppe Zanottis in the last bunch) for about 4 years now. I *LOVE* them. They’re absolutely what I wear when I think me outfit is otherwise a little too boring.

      Incidentally, I have the same shoes in red AND in a bronze-y neutral.

      • smayper

        Please let me shop in your closet. I am looking for bronzy shoes right now, and Nine West is a great brand — not just cost but I have a decent chance of not being in pain when wearing them.

    • Tracy_Flick

      The Nina Forbes are super bridesmaid-y. I love the Zanottis.

    • DuBey2

      I love the Aldo’s (for the interesting cut & texture) and the Miu Miu kitten heel. Opposite ends of the price spectrum!

    • Danielle

      Yellow looks REALLY sallow on my skintone, so I tend to stay away. I would only rock it if I had a bitchin’ tan.

    • lunchcoma

      I own those Aldo pumps. As in, that specific pair. They make my bland work slacks outfits more fun and summery. I don’t live in a very fashion forward area and don’t know anyone else who owns yellow pumps, so I don’t think I’m inundating anyone, though. If everyone else was wearing similar shoes, I think I’d be a little less keen on them.

    • susan6

      In terms of “who wore it better”….my vote is for America Ferrera. Yellow is such an aggressive color that it’s kind of weird to have your feet doing all the shouting and shade-throwing. I really prefer the other two outfits, but with them, all I can focus on are the shoes (which are saying, “YO, look down here. Ignore all that other crap.”. America’s outfit ties it in subtly with the narrow belt and small purse.

    • SewingSiren

      Miu Miu kittens are my favorite. I have a pair of yellow shoes by Isabel Toledo that never fail to get compliments. So yes to yellow pumps.

    • alyce1213

      YES to the deeper tones, which are really more gold — Jimmy Choo, Nine West, Miu-Miu, and my favorite:
      Chinese Laundry — because wearable heel, color, suede, they’re like a modern take on a d’Orsay pump. (I’d have see if they’d stay on my feet, though.)
      Don’t like the bright yellows or patent leather.

    • sweetlilvoice

      I love yellow accessories for some reason, so I like this idea! However, with my large feet, I doubt I will be buying any shoes soon. But I love to look at these!

    • Amel

      Yellow is not really my color, except possible the more muted/darker ones. I don’t know, this trend doesn’t really trigger any impulse shopping frenzy for me, but sometimes these things grow on me.

    • crash1212

      I have an aversion to the color yellow. It doesn’t look good on me and I won’t be in rooms for long that are painted that color because my skin tends to take on the hue. So…won’t catch me indulging in this latest trend. No way – no how.

    • lobsterlen

      Of course my favorite is the Jimmy Choo pump. As my grandmother always said, “champagne taste on a beer budget.”

    • MasterandServant

      Totally wearing the Forbes in my sister’s wedding next month

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      In my fantasy fashion life I would love to wear the Nina Forbes and the Chelsea Paris pumps. I like the idea of the yellow as a pop of color, but yes, when one in three celebs is wearing the yellow pump on the RC, it gets old really fast.

    • GillianHolroyd

      I have no objection to yellow pumps. It’s just in these cases, the outfits were too casual for a pump. Seriously, pumps and shorts are about as tacky as you can get. Ditto with exposed midriffs. Yellow sandals would’ve been a better choice. A closed shoe like a high-heeled pump is *always* formal, no matter the color. White pumps are even more problematic.

      There are a ton of cool shoes out there, How difficult can it be to move on to another pair? Imagination- fail.

    • AndieJay

      I had a pair of bright yellow pumps in the 80s. I wore them with an ivory, olive, pink and turquoise floral print on a black background. So, been there done that, and I don’t like to repeat myself :)

    • gitchygitchymama

      Trends are dated and passe.

    • ljh

      Looking at this shoes post, I have to ask a question to those more fashion-knowledgeable than I (every last one of the TLo Affectionados). What is a “patty-melt” in the shoe world? I’ve heard it spoken of disparagingly, but have no clue what it is. Thank you in advance!

      • jahphotogal

        I don’ t know, and the definitions on Urban Dictionary DEFINITELY have nothing to do with shoes!

    • Jessica Freeman

      I had a pair of yellow flats 2 years ago on my size 11 feet. Duck. Feet. Enough said.

    • MartyBellerMask

      I think the Chelsea Paris and Nina Forbes are my favorites.

    • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ TAKippy

      I own a yellow, almond-toe pair. It’s great for a pop of color.

    • http://sleepingfoxstitchery.weebly.com CLoverleaf

      I’ll take the Miu Miu kitten heels, please.

    • jahphotogal

      I have some yellow-orange ballet flats I’m wearing to death. I almost never wear heels but think a lot of these are gorgeous.

    • Daenyx

      Yellow is not a color I can wear on any part of my body except my hair and have it look non-horrid. So, #nope. I wouldn’t touch those even if I had occasion to wear heels.

    • Agnes Gooch

      I don’t think I have ever owned a pair of yellow shoes. When they’re deployed as a “pop of color,” I feel like they knock everything above them out of balance. They’re like balloons on your feet. And when deployed as a match to yellow in an outfit or accessories, everything just immediately goes straight to West Palm Beach Matchy-Matchy for me. It’s a trend that can’t die soon enough, IMO.

    • conniemd

      Yellow was my mother’s (RIP) favorite color and it looked fabulous on her as she was French Canadian with dark skin and hair. I, on the other hand, take after my dad with fair English rose coloring, so as you can imagine, all shades of yellow totally suck on me. I give homage to my mom with yellow accessories (and a yellow kitchen, because I really love the sunny nature of the color. So I have no problems with the yellow trend (or the coral trend for that matter as I love coral and it looks good on me).

    • elemspbee

      America Ferrera’s shoes win! and they’re Aldo’s for $69! though sold out.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Yellow is my most hated least favorite color, so I would never wear any of these. The Nina Forbes looks like a bridesmaid shoe.

    • kategs

      I owned a pair of egg yolk yellow patent leather pumps with clear heels and I loved them unreservedly. Of course that was 1967 so there you are. I like it but not its ubiquity.

    • Mothra

      I love yellow. Since I can’t really WEAR yellow (legally) I think i could totally rock a yellow pump, especially those yellow suede and the miu miu patent. I never really care for the faux reptile patterns regardless of color. Kate Spade has an awesome flat that looks like yellow taxis but three women in NY i know bought it and it didn’t fit anyone right. Too bad because it is adorbs

    • EditKitten

      I bought a pair a couple of summers ago, and I love them. Do I wear them often? No. But they’re surprisingly enduring.

    • teensmom99

      I have a pair of open toed yellow pumps I bought 2 years ago for a special occasion (it was a brunch–so day time) and I don’t wear them much though I want to . . . just can’t quite figure it out or maybe my wardrobe is not plain enough and I don’t need the attention puller.

    • PastryGoddess

      I want:
      Kate Spade
      Jimmy Choo
      Chelsea Paris
      The Nia Forbes are adorable but are a bit too too for me

    • Anna

      If I was wealthy enough to indulge in such trends, then yes – it’s fun, and it’s not offensive. In reality, I rarely have occasion to dress up, and I would fear these pumps would be relegated to a dark and dusty corner of my closet.

    • Alloy Jane

      I have a pair, had them for years, but they’re not so much yellow as they are tigers. They are super cute. I love yellow, but am not a fan of the super bright kind like Minnie Mouse wears.

    • tallgirl1204

      the Off Beat kid suede pumps are the ones I love, and that I would totally wear, if I ever wore even the slightest heel at all, which I do not…

    • Yoshio

      Chinese Laundry, not least because the price point makes sense for something you will wear for a season at most – though I could see those into early fall.

    • Jackie4g

      A big YEA. Because of the arthritis, heels are a thing of the past for me. So instead, I have a pair of yellow jazz shoes, flat and highly perforated that I bought last year. You would not believe how many different outfits they compliment. Mine are a sort of maize verging on mustard color.

    • Shelby

      I LOVE the Chelsea Paris pump!!!

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        Me too! I’m a little sad it’s sold out – the sale price was almost in my range. #cheap20something

    • Caitlin Rain

      Dear Uncles,
      is this a new post category? Because I can dig it. I can also dig the Jimmy Choos (although I can almost certainly not walk in them).

    • Anathema_Device

      I love yellow shoes and have a few pair, but no pumps. They go with so much more than you might think. As for these pumps, my taste runs toward the kitten-heel numbers from Miu Miu. Those are great.

    • PinkyK

      I LOVE my yellow shoes!

    • understateddiva

      I like the Dolce and Gabbana with the color blocking the most. I like that it’s a little different take on the trend – that should extend their life cycle beyond this season.

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      There is absolutely nothing in my summer wardrobe that would be complemented by yellow shoes, whether pumps or flats. Nothing.

    • KaileeM

      I’m in! Yellow is my absolute favorite color. But, my coloring is not right to really wear it, so I stick to buying yellow jewelry or handbags. Guess I should add a pair of kick ass heels, too.

    • Michelle Lim

      I have my Jason Wu mustard yellow flats for ages. It’s a great neutral that ages well.

    • bessann28

      I’ll pass.

    • quiltrx

      I can’t wear this sort of yellow (almost NO sort, truthfully), not even on my feet. Instant corpse.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      I like the Mondrian-ness of the Ruthie Davis pump myself. Not generally a yellow girl but my feet can be convinced of anything!

    • Brittney P

      I’d like to have most of them, but the last pair is my favorite. I’m totally behind this trend, but will most likely end up buying a pair of yellow flats (heels are too dressy for my work place and I almost never wear them out anymore). Love the pop of color!

      I totally remember the “we-are-annoyed-by-nude-shoes” thing that went on for quite a while with TLo. It got to the point that every time I went to put on my nude pumps, my brain’s inner TLo voice would voice its concern.

    • MandyM

      Dolce & Gabbana for the win! That’s assuming that I have a grand to drop on a pair of trendy shoes. Or any shoes for that matter!

    • SistaT

      I have a pair of bright yellow patent pumps with hot pink soles that are my favorite things in the world. I manage to pair them with all manner of outfits, from casual to dressy and they always work. LOVE.

    • Jennifer Bober

      Yellow is a rough color for me, so I tend to avoid it. If I had the budget for a pair of shoes I only wore once or twice a year, I’d go for those Miu Miu kitten heels, but since I don’t, I’ll stick to my red patent sling backs for when I need a color pop.

    • Bernadette

      I’ll take the Ruthie Davis please! I’ve rocked yellow pumps before, I like to pair them in the fall with navy and green plaid. I’ve also found them to be fun with black n’ white in my outfitting adventures.

    • Julie Parr

      I have a pair of neon yellow espadrille pumps from JCrew ($30 on sale since they are pretty risky) and they get a TON of compliments. Paired with blues and greens, they really look great (IMO).

      I am LIVING for those Jimmy Choos.

      I like the Nina and the Chinese Laundry. They look the most comfortable

      Only the Miu Miu could possibly fit in my world.

      The Ruthie Davis are my faves, would like to own them NOW. Also the Jimmy Choos, which have my favorite pump proportions.

      Bright colored shoes are the easiest way to pump up an outfit for lazy and poor people such as myself (and countless others who read this site and claim to be fashion savants)

      The Miu Miu kittenheels for afternoon tea with Lupita of course.

      I adore yellow so much, but so many shades of it are hard for pale girls like me to pull off. I love the Chelsea Paris but the Jimmy Choo’s are probably more my shade.

      I had a great little pair of yellow pumps once; I loved them with dark jeans. My style’s gotten more androgynous since and my pumps therefore fewer; the yellow ones went to the VVA ages ago. But oh, they were a fun look!

      Hm, maybe I should find a bright yellow oxford….

      If I had a large shoes budget, I’d pick up a pair.

      Nope, I hate yellow.
