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…
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.
