Block it out: the Color Block trend meets shoes!

I'm sure you've heard about this fancy new (or not so new) trend of COLOR BLOCKING.
Honestly, it sounds a bit ominous at first, but it is quite simple.  Think large brush strokes of bold and or contrasting colors in your garment or accessory.  My favorite way we're seeing this look is with colored jeans (oh yes they are back!) and a solid colored or white blouse.  

Another way to show off this trend is in your footwear.  Not feeling bold enough to wear head to toe jewel tones?  Go for a neutral outfit and finish it with a Color Blocked look on your feet!  
Here are some of my favorites, all found at

As much as I love Teal and Orange together, I also love this Teal and Red Pump!  The pop of color on the heel and in the piping are just too adorable!

The subtle contrast between the burnt orange, pumpkin orange, and fuchsia pink remind me of a fading summer sunset.  These would be perfect paired with a bright pink floral dress!

I have always loved green and purple together, probably from my days of being obsessed with drawing purple flowers with green curly vines and leaves.  This platform double mary jane pump  takes my childhood love to a whole new level!

The jewel tones in this strappy heel would bring sophistication to an otherwise wild design.  With a shoe this busy, pair them with black skinny pants and and a jewel tone top for a sassy/classy look.

I really love these cobalt and silver shoes.  Not only are the colors contrasting, but the textures are as well with a soft buttery suede and a slick shiny leather.

Do you have a favorite color blocked shoe?  Would you even consider wearing this bright, bold trend?
