The color block heels are one of the many interesting choices in shoes this year. I must say I am so pleased with these spotlight shoes that are prancing out of boutiques and stomping down the runway.
Pictured above are some of the runway goodies. From left to right: Dolce&Gabbana, Dries van Noten, Prada. Second row: Thakoon, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana.
Due to the trendiness of the color block shoes be cautious when choosing a pair. No need spending money on things that will date you or on something that wears you. Valentino did the best job of embodying this trend.
Often the color block shoe will look too cartoony and a bit cheesy. One pair that you need to be careful with is the buzz brand Pour La Victoire. I prefer the neutral toned instead of the popular in your face purple version. One is chic, the other cheesy.
Try pairing the neutral pair of Pour La Victoire with a solid colored dress in a bold dress like this BCBG frock from Bloomingdales. You can also make a funky look by pairing it with a dress in an unrelated pattern that picks up on its grey and white tones. This Vince dress does just that.
