Take a little stroll through our shoes, and among the brown, black, and grey boots and pumps in luxe leather and supple suede, you’ll find a few colorful offerings in purple, red, and, my current obsession, blue. I started a love affair with navy last fall when I picked up a pair of Moschino Cheap and Chic dark blue choked kiltie pumps, a liking that transitioned to navy dresses and tees, and this season, came full circle, though in a slightly softer rendition.
Specifically, I’m drawn to blue suede—not the Elvis variety, but these styles have me thinking The King was onto something. From Marc by Marc Jacobs ankle boots to the Sergio Rossi classic pumps (pictured) I’ve been flirting with for weeks, blue shoes add a new dimension to my always neutral wardrobe. Paired with a black dress and textured tights, they’re arty cool, and with my cardi-tee-jeans uniform, they’re intrigue in a sea of ordinary.
If my closet could take the influx of footwear, I’d add these blue suede styles to my wardrobe as well:
* Boutique 9 - Dorie Wrap Slouch Boots
* Camilla Skovgaard - Open Toe Booties with Lug Sole
* Rock & Republic - Celina Platform Pumps
* Sigerson Morrison - Double Knot Flats
* Stuart Weitzman - Keen Platform Boots
As it is, I’ll have to settle for one pair—I’m off to drop the Sergio Rossis in my cart.
