LA Transit Shoe Show: Bright Bold Colors Trending in Heels in 2011

Bright, bold colors! That’s what you’ll see this summer in heels. Color blocking in shoes (as well as dresses, but that’s not my area of expertise…so back to the shoes!) is included too.

Bright, bold colors were everywhere at the shoe show this week and along with these colors were all kinds of embellishments from metal studs to jewels to crystals to spikes, just see below in the photos I took:

Blue will be one of the hot colors for sure! It was everywhere, all shades from the royal blue above to the turquiose blue below…and all the shades in between.

Both of these Penny Loves Kenny shoes above and below use some unique color combos in their color blocking: turquiose blue with kelly green and hot pink with bright orange. It might not sound good, but they sure do look good! And the metal studs on the toe adds a little something extra. 🙂 

(It may look like red and pink in the photo, but trust me in person it was bright orange and hot pink.)

These heels by Enigma use some interesting color combos too: pink/baby blue/dark yellow, turquoise/hot pink/white, and dark yellow/lavendar. For the summertime, with the right dress or shorts outfit, they could look super cute! 🙂

These ‘Remi’ slingbacks by Lisa for Donald J. Pliner are a little more neutral than some of the previous examples, but still have the bright blue blended in with the light grey/dark grey on the upper of the shoe, so I wanted to include them. What do you think? Do you like the blending of colors in this shoe?

These wedges are also by Enigma and again this company uses some bright colors to highlight the details on their shoes. Here we see bright blue and dark yellow combined with a neutral wedge heel, and the bright colors are highlighting the light colored laces.

And last but not least is this pair of turquiose heels by Naughty Monkey with jewel embellishments which, I must add, looked much better in person… and I also have to admit that my FAVORITE pair of shoes at the show were by Naughty Monkey, but they are brand new so I was not able to take a photo of them…so, as soon as they are out on the market, I will surely write about them and show them to you! 🙂

Well, this was just one of the trends in heels for Summ2011 that I saw at the show…I will be posting a few more this week!

I hope you enjoyed this little preview of the summer heels coming to a store near you soon enough!
