Not too long ago (or so it seems now), I dedicated a very special Color Me Style blog to my friend, Estelle (& fellow blogger- see blog here), who was in search of elegant yellow heels to wear to her wedding, which was in March. Now go with me on this… I’m reminded of the beautiful ceremony & good times that were had with this image of Oscar nominee, Hailee Steinfeld, b/c of her fabulous canary yellow Jimmy Choo pumps & clutch. While Estelle was looking for something in satin, ladylike, & appropriate for a formal occasion, this image & Estelle’s hunt just go hand-in-hand b/c not many choose to gravitate towards yellow footwear. Here’s proof that it’s worth a shot!
Style Darlings like Rihanna, Katy Perry, & Lady Gaga helped to bring 80s-style back, & here Hailee is keeping the trend going, especially with this black & white striped Versace dress. She’s definitely edgy, youthful, & playful with this well-styled pop of color. I was unable to find where one may buy these Jimmy Choo accessories & I’m sure they’d be mighty pricey, so here are a few alternates that I’ve found to suit your sunshiney days! If you are looking for Jimmy Choo shoes & clutches, head to Nordstrom, DSW, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, & Net-A-Porter.
As for shoes, we have suede platform stiletto pumps ($30.00) & crinkle almond toe pumps ($30.00), both from Charlotte Russe. Also from Sears, you’ll find a round toe pump by Attention ($9.99)! If you’re looking to imitate the pointed toe look, try Pleaser’s ‘Milan’ pump ($49.95) from Endless, or the Second Glance pointy toe pumps also from Sears.
When it came time to search for clutches, yellow leather was a little difficult to find, given that yellow is not the go-to color this fall. However, with the help of sifting through the endlessly addictive catalogues on Shop Style, I found this portfolio envelope clutch ($36.59) @ASOS, but it is currently out of stock. Sad face.
I am the proud owner of two pairs of yellow pumps, a mustard-hued round toe & bright yellow pointed toe, both from past seasons @Payless. Some days I find it hard to keep the bright yellow on my feet, especially in an office environment, but I love wearing the surprise of color when going out. Here on Long Island, it’s not quite fall yet, so let’s keep the brightness going, even though we’re losing daylight a little big everyday.
If you like Hailee’s style, check out her recent ad campaign for Miu Miu, as well as some of her top red carpet looks! Is this look age-appropriate for the fourteen-year-old star? Would you wear yellow like this? Happy Styling!
