I am in love with color oxfords, and painting on a bright sole is the perfect way to reinvent a pair of shoes already in your closet.

Color Oxfords Supplies

Supplies: Masking tape, Silver spray paint, blue acrylic paint, paint brush, oxfords

Color Oxfords Step 1

Tape around the area that you want silver. Spray paint the area in thin layers to avoid the paint from pooling.

Color Oxfords Step 2

 After the paint dries, paint the sole blue.

If you do not have a steady hand, tape off the area you do not want blue.

Color Oxfords White Pants

I am a fan of wearing white all year round, but if you are not, wear with dark trousers or jeans.

It adds the perfect pop of color to a monotone outfit.

I hear this DIY is in ELLE France, if any of my French readers have it, I would love to see!
