This look works best if the materials match as well, like on Eva Longoria. Though most people wouldn't think to pair Eva's pastel yellow with grass green, because both her shoes and dress were shiny, this look works! I would have chosen a different colored clutch, but otherwise, Eva gets the thumbs up from me for this unconventional look.
Katie Holmes also manages to pull of the contrast shoe look with her red strapless ball gown and purple peep toe shoes. In fact, her royal hued peep toed shoes are really hot right now, and are a great purchase for anyone who wants to get a lot of mileage out of their trends. These shoes can easily be carried over into fall.
Try out the contrast shoe look for yourself with a pair of candy colored shoes you already have...you may find that a trend exists right in your own closet!
