It seems white shoes are (almost) a must-have this fall and winter. I wrote almost because white shoes are one of those fashion items that usually you either love or loathe. There’s no middle way, and for some reason this often happens with white items, as I wrote in a post about the white bra.
Once related to some categories of workers like nurses, ice-cream makers and go-go dancers, during the last seasons white shoes have been embraced by fashion darlings like Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner and a lot of actresses, bloggers and entrepreneurs like Emily Weiss.
Except for a pair of white sandals purchased years ago (with a very limited amount of leather and so, of white), I haven’t purchased other white shoes because so far they were not available in many models. Now, I feel ready to buy a brand new pair. Nowadays legitimized for almost every occasions, sneakers can look pretty chic. White sneakers in particular can create an interesting contrast with many other colors, most of all darks and neutrals, and add a cool touch to a simple/classic outfit.
As a huge lover of ankle boots, I wouldn’t mind having a white pair. It’s been the video of “Empty” by Garbage that made me realize how cool white booties can be. Worn with fishnets they are even cooler. I’m perfectly aware that some of you are turning up their nose, but I can’t help… I love the rock star style! And Shirley Manson is one of the coolest women in the world.
These are some beautiful and cool white shoes for this fall and winter.
