Trend Alert: Coral Shoes for 2012

Coral Reef
You Don't Need to Visit the Reef to See Coral This Summer

Coral is one of the major trends this year in footwear.

As you’re out and about this summer you’ll be seeing coral everywhere. The color is big with accessories like bracelets and rings and necklaces. You’ll see coral bags and watches. Shirts, shorts, and skirts will have coral and coral accents as well.

And there will of course be coral footwear. We’re talking sandals, slip-ons, dress shoes and casuals. It’s all in coral and they all make you look great.

If you’re looking for a subtle pop of color for your look this summer then you need coral in your shoe closet.

Here are some great options.

It’s a great look for a casual summer day walking around the shops or just spending time with your friends hanging out.
