Walk Into Spring With Sunny Citrus Shoes

The Trend: Bright citrusy soles

Why it's Hot:
A recent trip to L.A. brought on my first introduction to the science-meets-nature phenomenon that is the "fruit salad tree." I couldn't believe I had never heard of these horticultural miracles before; how cool is a tree that sprouts lemons, limes, nectarines and grapefruits all at once? Apparently, fashion's powers that be are as enamored of the fruit salad tree as I am (or perhaps they just enjoy their adult beverages with a twist). Whatever the case may be, expect lip-puckering citrus-hued shoes to garnish the most fashionable feet come springtime.


Get the Look:
Party pretty in these sprightly and slightly retro limeade-colored Pepper peep toes from J. Crew ($198). The suede pouf at the toe is equal parts '50s cocktail party, '80s prom, and modern couture.

We have a total orange crush on these decidedly non-Louboutinesque tassel loafers ($237). Quite the opposite of Mr. L's towering stilettos, these mango-hued flats are a cheery—and comfy!—addition to any spring wardrobe.

The footwear equivalent of the fruit salad tree, Franco Sarto's Dente sandals ($89) are a hybrid of all our sweet-n-sour favorites. Lemon and lime straps criss-cross over ruby grapefruit patent leather. The chic silver buckle is a refreshing accoutrement that adds another graphic element to shoes that are already outfit-makers.

You know that refreshing zing that comes with your first sip of Sprite? These Naughty Monkey Colorful Talk pumps ($80) deliver the same fizzy burst and crisp sensation. Neon lemon-lime leather, bright white and silvery rock 'n' roll studs add up to one fresh pair of kicks. Ahhhh.

image
Think you've got your balancing act down? Try your teetering skills in these stacked platform peep toes from Nine West ($89). Reminiscent of a sweet orange dreamsicle, these cream-colored leather numbers have just the right amount of tangelo-bright patent detailing.
