Step into summer with these Pantone-splashed footwear

Don’t you think you have enough white shoes?

It may already be March but we’re still loving Pantone-inspired ‘fits for the new season. And the easiest way to revamp your wardrobe? Shoes.  When was the last time you bought shoes that weren’t black, white or brown? Adding some bright pops of color to your wardrobe will pack as much stylish punch as any refreshing Pantone palette for that extra summer fashion fun. Without further ado, here are our top color picks and kicks to kickstart your summer looks.


As vivacious as the sun and as bright as million-dollar smiles, illuminating is the color to go if you want that cheerful summer glow. The chosen color for 2021 owing to its hopeful vibe, this animated yellow is great for livening up any outfit.. These brilliant yellow Primadonna heels are our bet. Not into heels? Slip into these equally bright slides from CLN, which take the cake for casual chic.  Making a good start to your day sometimes starts with your shoes—after all, one look and you’ve got a burst of sunshine.

Raspberry sorbet

As the name already suggests, raspberry sorbet reminds us of our favorite frozen summer treats. This fuschia is great for spring and summer as it gives off a lively and youthful aura. A great choice for high-spirited and fashion-forward individuals, you already know we’re hopping on this color trend ASAP with these sleek seaport slides from Sperry. Nautical chic and summer-appropriate, we’re ready to walk into a summer rom-com or beachside music video now. Paired with a maxi skirt or flared jeans, we’ll definitely keep coming back to this shoes-and-shade ensemble.

There’s just something so elegant about the color rust. Seasonless and sophisticated, this burnt red-orange hue reminds us of cold iced teas, bonfires and gatherings on summer nights. Plus, it’s easy to add to  your ‘fits, like these rustic, sassy sandals from So Fab to match your attitude and shades. Looking for a more modern addition to your closet? These sculptural heel sandals from Charles & Keith will do the trick To get that Parisian summer-inspired fit, pair them with complementary blue pieces for a saturated look or natural greens and tans for a more rustic look.

This yellow-orange hue is often sported in fall but Pantone predicts its amicable vibe will be sought after this season, too. Named after the flower of the same name, its attention-grabbing golden shade is great for adding a fun touch to any outfit and to simply exude good vibes in general. For this fun shade, we’re banking on these golden suede sneakers from Hush Puppies to inject some pep into our steps. Classic sneakers never go out of style and are great for more physical activities for more fun in the sun. If you’re not a sneaker girl, do these Abigail slides from Payless instead. Laid-back or all dressed up, the color of the sun on your feet will keep the positive energy going all year long.

Butter cream

Okay, maybe another neutral pair isn’t so bad… Like cozy nights and new hobbies such as baking and crocheting, butter cream is the cozy color of familiarity we’re donning this summer. Be it the wine mom look of these Alberto sandals or the cookie enthusiast vibe of these adorable Payless slip-ons, we’re sporting this off-white shade to match the peace of mind we’re aiming for this 2021. Homey yet chic and practically goes with anything, we’re fans of butter cream for that sophisticated yet relaxed look.
