White Shoes EEK OR CHIC?

Just when we thought it was safe to re­sign our­selves to black boots for the next six months, VB throws a new (and to­tally un­ex­pected) shoe trend our way…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Here at Look we con­sider our­selves un­ri­valled footwear ex­perts but not even our res­i­dent shoe ob­ses­sives could have pre­dicted this 80s trend come­back, spear­headed by the mighty Vic­to­ria Beck­ham (who else?). Aban­don­ing sneaker ter­ri­tory for sleeker pas­tures, white is the shade to be seen in RN – and we’re into it. Luck­ily, the high street’s got a bounty of boots, heels and flats that look as if they’ve been sub­ject to a freak Tipp-ex spillage. If you’re brave enough to give white a whirl, prom­ise us you’ll fol­low our fool­proof styling guide…


What­ever you do, do NOT wear white shoes with black tights. It’s a crime against fash­ion, akin to the dreaded socks and san­dals combo.

Also, steer clear of ul­tra-bright or flu­oro clothes, oth­er­wise you’ll run the risk of look­ing cheap (gasp!). In­stead, opt for muted, clas­sic colours.

Avoid white lace frocks like the plague – un­less the bri­dal look is what you’re go­ing for, obvs.


Pair with clas­sic wash jeans and a vel­vet blazer for cool-girl vibes.

Be sure to in­vest in a qual­ity white shoe pol­ish be­fore you even think of step­ping out­side. Un­sightly scuffs can­not and will not be tol­er­ated.

Steer clear of frills and ruf­fles – white shoes al­ways look best with min­i­mal or tai­lored pieces. Think cig­a­rette trousers and knit­ted midis and you’re on the right track.
