Any fashionista will tell you that the easiest way to pump up your outfit’s volume is with a bright, bold accessory. And those same fashionistas know that the go-to amplifying add-on is a great pair of shoes. Why else do you think we need so many?! For Missoni’s Spring 2011 collection, the Italian house sent out wildly colored and patterned footwear to play off its equally attention-grabbing garments. For a label that’s already known for it’s creative use of color, these Missoni shoes took that signature to a new level. But the good news is you don’t need $400 shoes to achieve the look. Search for styles that use either brilliant, neon colors or playful prints in any silhouette from platform pumps to strappy flats. And if you can find a shoe that’s both patterned and colorful, well then who’s that you aren’t rocking the new Missoni?
