Clothes That You Can Wear With Hot Pink Pumps

by Stacey Kole, studioD

Some shoes are simply too fabulous to pass up, and a hot pink pump is one such shoe. But once you’ve snatched up your pair of killer pink pumps, your attention turns to finding the perfect clothing -- a task that's easier said than done. If the boldness of hot pink has you rethinking your purchase, there’s no need to head back to the mall. From neutral hues to denim, hot pink pumps easily fit right in to a fashion-forward wardrobe.

Black and White

A bright white dress or sleek black trousers and a black silk blouse receive a singular pop of color when paired with hot pink pumps. The addition of the electric hue livens up the simplicity of a solid white or black outfit. If you’re looking for dressy sophistication, opt for black -- whether it’s a frock, pants or a skirt -- and let the shoes be the counterpoint to an otherwise buttoned-up look. If a flirty vibe for a party or a date is on your agenda, hot pink pumps with all white is a bit more casual and festive.

Other Neutrals

When reaching for that perfect garment to pair with pink pumps, black and white aren’t the only neutrals in the book. A beige, charcoal, ecru or light silver dress is instantly glamorized when accented with a bright shoe. Since you don’t want other elements of the outfit competing with the footwear, keep accessories simple and neutral in hue. For example, a gray frock with small silver hoops or diamond studs and a black clutch make the perfect conservative contrast to your notice-me hot pink pumps.


While you may stay reserved for the office or a business meeting, a fun event such as Sunday brunch or an engagement party calls for a little letting loose. When such a moment presents, grab your pink pumps and a brightly colored dress, jumper, skirt or romper and let your shoes be the ideal complement. For example, a cute yellow pleated skirt and white blouse are elevated with the addition of bright pink footwear. Daring fashionistas also can reach for prints -- think a cobalt-blue and white graphic-print wrap dress, silver jewelry and hot pink pumps.


Jeans really do go with everything, and pink pumps are no exception. Try a pair of sleek dark-wash skinny jeans, a white tank and a black blazer for a dressy-casual vibe for dinner or drinks with friends. Or, embrace the denim-on-denim trend and rock a jeans look from head to toe. A chambray button-down shirt and dark denim go from country chic to city glam with the addition of hot pink pumps. Keep the other elements basic, such as a cognac shoulder bag and simple accessories, and let your shoes do both the walking and the talking.
