“And it was all yellow.” Maybe not all, but the shoes in these gorgeous outfits are! Here are 10 fabulous ideas for what to wear with yellow shoes.

Yellow is probably the last color anyone thinks to add to their shoe closet, but these outfits will likely change your mind. Luxury brands like LOEWE and Bottega Veneta have been instrumental in introducing color to the luxury market – before this, popular accessories were mostly in neutral colors.

If you’ve been scrolling Pinterest & TikTok to see what the “fashion girlies” are wearing, you’ll find that most opt for accessories and shoes in bright colors, and what would be better than yellow? Particularly if you usually wear neutral outfits, yellow is a wonderful color that matches the cool tones of black, grey, and white.

If you’re convinced about buying a pair of yellow shoes but have no idea how to wear them – here are 10 fun outfit ideas.

What To Wear With Yellow Shoes

1. Grey Monochrome

An approachable way to style the pop of yellow shoes is with a neutral outfit. Grey works well if you opt for a shade of the color with warm undertones, as they will match the undertones of yellow.

Break up the colors with a white shirt or tee which will ensure the overall look isn’t too overwhelming. Yellow sneakers made a great statement for comfortable outfits that are still trendy.

2. Cargo Pants

Cargo pants, like jeans, are almost neutral in an outfit. You can wear them with anything (yellow shoes included) and it’ll always work.

This outfit will work perfectly if your top or purse also has an element of yellow in the design to tie everything together.

3. Barbie Pink

Pink and yellow pair together beautifully, owed to both having warm undertones. This combination works perfectly for a vacation outfit if you want to wear yellow shoes.

For a summer night-out look, pair a pink mini dress with strappy yellow heels – as high as you can handle. If it’s towards the end of summer, wear an oversized blazer for the chilly evenings.

4. Florals

Floral patterns will nearly always have an element of yellow in the design, making them perfect for the summer months.

If you’re going on a European summer vacation, opt for a pair of yellow ballet pumps to combat the cobblestone streets. For colorful outfits like this, go for a no-makeup makeup look, with slicked-back hair.

5. Neutrals

Neutrals are often misunderstood. The general rule is that you shouldn’t be wearing more than two colors at the same time, but this outfit proves this isn’t true.

The reason it works is that the undertones of all the elements are warm, and so they still have a common thread to tie them together. This is a perfect cozy fall-winter outfit and lets the yellow sneakers really stand out.

Like cargo pants, jeans are neutral in any outfit, and so work beautifully with statement yellow shoes. This is great if you want to incorporate your shoes into a smart work outfit.

Pair your jeans with yellow ballet flats and a checked blazer – it’ll look chic and tailored but still fashion-forward.

Graphic t-shirts are a wonderful way to incorporate color into the rest of your outfit. Look for a t-shirt with the color you want to add using your accessory.

Take a leaf out of Carrie Bradshaw’s book and pair your t-shirt with a flowing maxi skirt and heels to look chic enough to make heads turn.

9. All Yellow

For those who aren’t scared to go for a statement look to wear with yellow shoes, a monochrome yellow outfit could be the way to go. A yellow dress, co-ord, or jumpsuit makes this easier as you won’t need to worry about finding the same shade of yellow to wear together.

The warm tones of yellow lends itself to being worn with gold metals, and so it’s the perfect excuse to get out your big gold earrings.
