For 2012's ever important pop of color, try giving the trend some extra heft by colorfully adorning your lowest extremity. When the weather warms and the stockings become less ubiquitous, it's the perfect time to incorporate colorful sandals. While bright sandals may have once appeared as the only fun ingredient in an otherwise plain outfit, brave wearers know that mixing and matching will get the most mileage out of the pieces. Use a bright solid pair to make color-blocking a full body experience, or use a multi-colored pair to add another facet to a pattern-heavy mix-and-match look.
Can't wait until true Spring? It's cool, incorporate some warm legwear into the look. Pretty much anything goes with feet-exposing footwear now, to the advantage of sandal lovers worldwide. Get creative!
