How to Wear Yellow Shoes this Spring

A few weeks ago I went to a Spring Fashion Preview with TJMaxx/Marshalls and found a pair of yellow flats that I fell in love with. The kind of love where I went on a rampage to find those exact shoes in every TJMaxx and Marshalls around me (I found them, but they didn’t have my size).

Yellow shoes are something I never would have gravitated to before in my life. When I was working at DKNY, I bought myself a pair of yellow heels at a sample sale one season. They sat in my closet untouched for years. They’re actually still there (thank goodness!). I guess my thought process was – what am I doing with YELLOW SHOES? Now my thought process is – let’s get some use out of these YELLOW SHOES!

So what can one wear with YELLOW SHOES? (That seems to be the million dollar question.)

I put down 7 different collections of clothing, all sporting YELLOW shoes. I wanted to some the different kinds of items you could pair and give some suggestions on colors to match with yellow shoes. I also chose different styles of yellow shoes to make it more doable… after all, not everyone’s going to love yellow heels or yellow flats! 🙂

My 7 suggestions… incorporating in skirts, dresses, capris, shorts and some floral trends!







What’s your favorite?

  1. my daughter gave me a pair of yellow flats that were too big for her….well, i’ve worn them all winter with jeans on dress down fridays…..love them!

  2. Wow, Jack Rogers flats (or look alikes?) at TJ Maxx? I’ve seen them on Gilt but not in-store at TJ’s before. Will have to check out the local store on the UWS (though smart shoppers here will likely snap them up pronto)…

  3. This is so timely and the weather is just about right for me to start wearing my yellow flats again. I wear them with white jeans, my white a-line skirt, and gray pants, dark jeans and gray shorts.

    I’m with Jo-Lynne (who pointed me to your post) that yellow shoes look great with gray and white and I agree with her that I don’t wear them with black, and for the same reason – I think it looks too much like a bee!

    I really love the top outfit for the weekend, and I was surprised and delighted to see the second outfit with the purple dress and the pale yellow shoes. I guess purple and yellow are complementary so it makes sense but I’d never thought of it before!
