This week, actress Melissa McCarthy stepped out in New York City to promote her new fashion line Melissa McCarthy Seven7 (which we are SO excited for!). And of course, to promote her new fashion line, she made quite the fashion statement in an all-neutral outfit with a yellow caged heel from Zara.
These Zara heels, the perfect complement to her pale blue-grey top and skirt combo, are priced at $99. By keeping the entirety of her outfit neutral, it allows for her heels, a sunflower yellow, to be the statement piece of her ensemble.
If McCarthy’s Zara heels are just out of your price range, there are some other similar options. But be sure to keep in mind, however, how you will wear these shoes — if you notice, the brightness and saturation of the McCarthy’s heels is proportional to the brightness and saturation of her entire outfit. This means that the color of the yellow is neither too overpowering nor too rich to be paired with her soft neutral attire.
To mimic McCarthy’s caged-heel style, try a look like the BCBGeneration Preize Patent Sandal. Although this heel comes in a brighter yellow, the straps mimic those of McCarthy’s Zara heels and can be a great addition to a bright summer wardrobe. Let’s not fail to mention that this shoe comes in at about $39 cheaper than McCarthy’s heels, retailing for $59.95 at DSW.
If the BCBGeneration heel is a little too bright for your taste, another option that is closer in color to McCarthy’s Zara heels is the Ibenama High-Heel Sandals from Aldo. Although these heels offer a more simple design, the paler shade of yellow allows for them to be mixed and matched in your wardrobe that a brighter heel might not allow for. These beauties are priced $29 cheaper than the Zara heels, retailing for $70.
So if Melissa McCarthy inspired you to invite yellow into your life (and your wardrobe!), look no further than these great options to add to your shoe collection!
