Spring 2008 Fashion Trend: Nude Pumps

We started to see inklings of this trend mid-winter, but since Spring has arrived, the nude pump has become the go-to neutral shoe of the season. This makes us happy, because it’s a great transition shoe (doesn’t shout either winter or spring) and goes with just about everything. Best of all, the nude pump provides a fresh counterpoint to the bold patterns and vivid colors that are everywhere this season. Some tips on how — and how not — to wear them.

Tips for Wearing Nude Pumps

Pair them with: floral or patterned dresses; jeans, a t-shirt, and bright colored swing jacket; dress shorts and a pleated tunic top. You can do a neutral bag if you like, but we’re thinking a bright colored clutch would be our choice.

Don’t wear them with: beige/neutral from head to toe (bo-ring); colored stockings; a cocktail dress (uh, in general — too casual).
