Get the Look: Celeb-Inspired Yellow Heels

Sometimes it’s the little touches that take your outfit from average to enviable. Celebrities have stylists to calculate all the complicated nuances of putting together a look, but we aren’t all so fortunate. Luckily, tFS has put together some celeb-inspired styling tips and tricks to help you give your look that extra oomph! This week, stars show you how to add a pop of color to your outfit with yellow heels, a summery spin on the classic leg-lengthening nude heel.

Tip #1: Pair colored lace with yellow platform pumps à la Jaime King


At the CW Upfront event, Jamie King did spring’s color-blocking trend in a pretty teal lace dress with sheer sleeves and a high neck, unexpectedly paired with yellow suede platform pumps. Her simple updo, the scalloped hem on the dress, and the heels’ ankle straps are girly touches that pull this elegant outfit together. WhoWhatWear recently reported on the white lace dress trend, but why not try yellow heels with lace in a complementary color for a garden party-ready look like Jamie King’s.

Tip #2: Spice up spring neutrals with olive and yellow like Keri Hilson


Keri Hilson was smokin’ at Maxim’s Hot 100 party in a body-con olive jersey dress with cut-outs  and towering yellow suede wedges by Giuseppe Zanotti. Her gold cuffs and dagger nails added an edge to her sexy take on a neutral palette. Avoid brights and try a more mustardy hue like Hilson when pairing yellow wedges with olive.

Tip #3: Copy Lyndsy Fonseca’s retro look with yellow peeptoes and polka dots


Yellow heels were all over the CW Upfront event—Nikita actress Lyndsy Fonseca’s retro-inspired green carpet outfit had a fun 80s vibe. She pumped up spring’s brights with vibrant turquoise polka dots, a raspberry wrap skirt, and banana yellow peeptoes by ALDO with contrasting soles. Don’t forget, if you’re going to let your toes peep, pick a vibrant polish for your peds like Fonseca.
