If you were to take a peek into my sizable shoe closet, you’d probably notice a theme: white. That’s because a few years ago (as designers such as Proenza Schouler, Tibi, and Céline sashayed them down the runways), I fell utterly in love with white shoes and have become obsessed ever since—ushering them into my closet to uplift my outfits (and mood) in the season’s most pristine silhouettes. What’s with the love affair, you ask? There’s something about a white pair of shoes that adds a level of sophistication while exuding an of-the-moment cool. Not to mention they work with practically every outfit. White is the new black when it comes to my shoe closet. Not only do they ground an outfit, but they’re also the perfect alternative to black shoes in the warm summer months and unquestionably add a chic factor to even the simplest jeans-and-tee combo. The white-shoe trend has shown no sign of slowing down either—the fashion set love them, and they’re as versatile as any nude or black pair.
Try these gorgeous white kitten heels with a wrap dress or cropped pastel pants at work. Trade black ankle boots for white ones or opt for easy and effortless mules to wear from day to night.
