Trend Alert: Solange Knowles
Did you watch the Grammys?
My fave moments of the night included Justin Timberlake’s return to the stage with a performance of his NEW single “Suit & Tie,” (swoon! 🙂), Mumford & Sons’ big win for “Album of the Year,” for their latest, “Babel,” and my gal Adele’s “Best Pop Solo Performance” win for “Set Fire to the Rain.”
I also loved a lot of the fashion from last night. Adele ditched her usual black dress and opted for a gorgeous vintage red dress from Valentino. The Internet is definitely abuzz today with mixed opinions on her dress, but in my opinion Adele can do no wrong – I thought she looked stunning!
One of my other favorite looks of the night was from signer Solange Knowles who rocked two of Spring’s hottest fashion trends. If you hadn’t heard, Pantone’s “Color of the Year” for 2013 is Emerald – I noticed Knowles and singer Florence Welch both opted for gowns in the gorgeously rich hue, and both ladies looked fabulous! What I also love about Knowles’ look is her footwear choice – a stunning, studded neon pink Louboutin pump. Knowles proves here that you don’t have to go with a neutral hue if you choose a colorful gown – you can up the style ante with a boldly colored shoe as well! Talk about fashion-forward!
We carry a lot of hot styles here at ShoeMall, and we’re always trying to find the best shoes for every fashionista on a shoestring budget. 🙂 Now, Solange is wearing a neon pump with an evening gown, but this season, expect to see bright pops of color on pumps, sandals, oxfords and more, that you can wear with almost any outfit in your closet! Here are some bright and beautiful “looks for less” similar to the singer’s style that are sure to catch you eye.

Minus the studs, this gorgeous patent pump gives you the dramatic dose of color you crave, but is definitely a lot more versatile – Add it to your tailored black suit or a little black dress for the perfect office-to-evening look! It’s currently on sale too – bonus!!
Calvin Klein Women’s Ashley Pump

As always, Calvin Klein offers only the best–all at a great price! I love the Ashley pump in this bright yellow. Or, if you’re not ready to go for an all-over neon shoe, opt for the Mink/Orange Patent, with just a pop of neon on the heel.
Baby Phat Women’s Jetta Pump

How hot is the Jetta pump?! Give your day or evening look a “rock n’ roll” twist with this two-toned pump. I love the orange mixed with the magenta heel. At $54.95, this pump is a style steal!
