Yellow is a bright summer color that can work well on heels if done right. With yellow it is very important that the right shade is chosen so it does not look like someone threw up on your feet. This color is very popular on summer wedges since it is a typical image associated with this time of year.
How to Wear Yellow Heels
Elements that make up a yellow heel
You can find yellow on everything from stilettos and flats to sandals and wedge heels. This color comes in many shades from a light sunny yellow to a more orangey citron color. I feel that this color looks the best on wedges, sandals and standard high heels.
Occasions yellow heels can be worn for
Typically the color yellow is associated with summer and spring but I feel that it is fine to wear this color all year long to add a pop of color to your wardrobe. I would avoid wearing this color to formal events since it can sometimes look a little young or juvenile.
What to wear yellow heels with
Yellow heels would work great with a long maxi dress or a flowy summer skirt. It can either be paired with other bright colors or with neutrals to add in that pop of color. Since this color is so bright I would pair it with lighter more neutral colors for a day time look or pair it with other bold neon and bright colors for a night time look. With yellow since there are so many shades it is hard to match the exact shade to other yellow items in your wardrobe so I would be very choosy when adding yellow to your outfits and stick to just one or two yellow items.
