If you’ve ever watched So You Think You Can Dance, whether it was for a small snippet or weekly like me, you’ve probably noticed one undeniable thing – the greatness of the host, Cat Deeley. And while Cat is wonderfully honest in her assessments of the dances, finds ways to make everyone seem relateable, and manages to calm the crazy of some of the judges,  her greatest feat is quite possibly her weekly bold choices in fashion.

For this blog (and for me, in particular) that includes her shoes. She does not shy away from metallic colors and funky styles, and just like with her clothing, she finds a way to still look elegant and classy while wearing a very trendy shoe.

Now, to be sure – with boldness comes some detractors, but whether you always agree with what she’s wearing or not, you can certainly appreciate her flair and the way she struts along that stage with all the confidence in the world. Here are a few of some of my fav shoe looks from her:

Whether she’s at a step and repeat or on the show, Cat typically shows off her long legs with a trendy and bold shoe.

And even when she goes for a more classic style, you can still see small elements of boldness in the shoe – like choosing a pointed toe, as opposed to a round one.

I included the last two photos to show that even though she typically wears a bolder shoe, Cat still understands that a classic pump is best every once in awhile. This is important, because it tells me that you don’t have to just pick one style of shoe and stick with that throughout all of your wardrobe choices. If you’re a person who normally wears funky and trendy shoes, maybe a “bold” choice for you is to buy a classic pump, and if you’re someone who wears a more classic style, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to have a few shoes that spice up your closet. Maybe you too can find the joy in a metallic sandal heel.

So what do you all think? Do you have any bold/ trendy shoes in your repertoire? And if not, when do you plan on going shopping?

A couple of years ago hubby and I went to AC and for the first time ever I won some money! i wandered into one of those little shops and saw a pair of metallic cage stilettos. I immediately bought them and wore them that night. My shoes were the belle of the ball! Lol. Everytime I wear them I get compliments. I love those shoes….
