Double-Take: Sergio Rossi Yellow Sandal

Despite the fact that yellow is considered a happy color, few people gravitate towards it when it comes to choosing shoes or clothing. Many don’t think the color suits them; but it really just comes down to figuring out which shade works with your skin tone. Once that’s figured out, the rest should be easy! I think any shade of yellow is a great color for shoes because it’s so bright, eye-catching, and mood-lifting. Yellow complements just about any other color, but works especially well with navy, burgundy, and neutrals like grey, brown, black and white. The Sergio Rossi shoes above are very simple and versatile; the rich yellow satin would look great worn with a summer dress and bare legs in warm weather, and stunning over a pair of opaque tights paired with a sweater dress for fall.

Although the Sergio Rossi shoes have been greatly reduced from the original retail price, they’re still a bit expensive. The Sadie pump from ShoeMint is a great alternative and looks extremely similar to the original. I actually prefer the look of Sadie because the heel is more slender, which makes the entire shoe look more elegant and less clunky.
