"Something old" depicts continuity; "something new" represents optimism for the future; "something borrowed" indicates borrowed happiness; "something blue" embodies purity, love, and fidelity; and "a sixpence in your shoe" is a hope for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom, brides around the world are practicing it.
Since most brides wear white for their wedding dresses, bridal accessories tend to be the subject of the "something blue". And nowadays, the most popular something blue in a bride's ensemble seems to be the shoes. It puts both a punctuation and punch in the bridal outfit.
I've seen so many wedding photos where brides wear blue shades for the shoes and it ranges from baby blue to midnight blue. Some are plain and some are with beautiful embellishments.

What a great way to use a tradition in a fashionable way.
