Summer is here and we’ll be wanting to step up and out with a pump to match our brighter styles. For this time of year we can embrace bolder colors like magenta, turquoise and canary yellow into our wardrobes. Donning a bright pump is an easy way to add pops of color into your look for a quick way to dress up an outfit, reinvent pieces of your wardrobe, and show the world your personality.
If you didn’t have a high heel obsession before, these “Claudette” D’Orsay Pumps might make you a believer. A pointy toe pump is a classic look when paired with an outfit as simple as denim jeans and a white v-neck. In this shade of aquamarine though classic pumps are taken to new heights. This pump will demand attention so to keep a happy balance choose the rest of your outfit in a slightly different color tone. Also you add an accessory like a printed scarf that includes this accent shade to set off your look.
It helps to try and see the world through rose-tinted glasses so we figure that a rosy-hued shoe can’t hurt either! Demure and oh so pretty, this “Peppa” Patent Leather Platform Sandal will be the perfect splash of color to monochromatic white ensembles this summer. For shades in the pink family it’s easy to accent your pump with your makeup choices. A pink lip or coral blush will catch the color off your shoe connecting your look from head to toe.
3. True Blue
Cobalt and cyan have become really popular shades in the fashion world for the past few seasons. For summer we can use the energy of this vibrant blue and make it suitable for warmer weather by choosing a light framework. This “Kamella” Leather Gladiator by Vince Camuto is a pump that gives off the impression of weightlessness. Using a ribbed framework and a peep-toe, this gorgeous blue pump is offset by the transparent bands where our skin shows through, making it look lighter. This peek-through style also ensures that the pump’s color won’t overwhelm the wearer.
A red pump is old news, we want a lighter, more tropical look for summer which makes magenta a great choice. Strong and soft at the same time, magenta is a lot easier to style than most people realize. The key to successfully pulling off this hue is to pair it with colors like midnight blues, deep purples, and dark reds if you’d like to try color blocking, or certain shades of yellow. This “Cian” Peep-Toe Pump by Jessica Simpson is so memorizing in this shade and can easily transform between casual and dressy looks.
Summer is a fruitful time of year for growth and expansion so if you are seeking to embrace the season with a more adventurous attitude to your fashion try a violet pump. The color of royalty, purple is a powerful shade that goes easily with the colors blue and red, and that can be opposed against such colors as yellow or orange for a more eye-catching look. This “Caela” Asymmetrical Platform Pump would also be lovely for a fancier occasion paired with a sleek black dress. With its unique cut and color this shoe may be your new favorite for more than just one season.
