Color is one of the most defining aspects of a pair of women’s shoes. They are meant to complement the natural beauty of the shoe but are also designed to draw attention to it should the need arise. As such, we are offered a wide variety of shoe styles on the market. These range from the sublime to the outrageous. Lets take a look at some of the most popular colors for women’s shoes today.
Black is single most popular color for shoes on the market by far. Interestingly, black is also some of the most popular colors for clothing as well. The reason for this phenomenon is simple. Black is inherently good looking while very easy to match. It is also one of the safest colors to choose when buying a pair of shoes or clothes out there. For that reason, there are more black shoes sold every year than any other color. They are a must have for any women’s wardrobe since they take out the guess work when it comes to choosing colors. All you have to do is choose a suitable style and heel height and choose black. This color will match all but the most outrageous items in your wardrobe. In terms of versatility, it can only be matched by one other color.
You were probably thinking white, but the answer is nude. Nude matches black for its extreme versatility. Nude colors are any color that matches your skin tone. Having said that, nude colors in the market usually revolve around a few colors. You will find that these colors are normally, pinkish, beige, pale tan and to some extent darker shades of cream. Because they match the skin tone, they are essentially the single most versatile color out there. If you choose a shade that blends in with you skin shade, you can dress up in just about any color and you will look good. Other benefits include an illusion that lengthens your legs. This is the pair you want to have if you need to highlight a dress, top or an accessory. However, nude shoes are still a rather niche product despite this.
Beige is a very neutral color to use on shoes. Neutral colors are very handy when you want to highlight other aspects of your wardrobe. In that sense, it is much like nude as it doesn’t really stick out but is meant to be a background player in the wardrobe. For that reason, beige is one of the more popular colors out there. They match quite well with almost anything and come in various shades depending on what you’re looking for.
White and the shades that revolve around are also very popular. They are second most popular colors after black. Depending on what your needs, you can go with basic white or the off-white variants like ivory. Cream is also nice to have if you fancy a yellowish tinge to the shoe. White is pure color that is bright and goes well with equally bright colors. There is a downside to this color however, shoes in white get dirty very easily. Sometimes, these stains can be permanent. For that reason, you may want to have a cleaning kit handy if you have a lot of white shoes.
