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.
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.
