White Shoes – Eek Or Chic?

Just when we thought it was safe to reside 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 unrivaled footwear experts, but not even our resident shoe obsessives could predict this 80s trend comeback. Abandoning sneaker territory for sleeker pastures, white is the shade to be seen in RN. Spearheaded by the mighty Victoria Beckham (who else?), the high street’s followed suit with a bounty of boots, heels and flats that look as if they’ve been subject to a freak Tippex spillage. However, the more we gaze upon them, the more we’re coming round to the white shoe way of thinking. If you’re brave enough to give them a go, promise us you’ll follow our styling foolproof guide…

Eek!

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

Chic!

  • 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 about 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 must-haves. Think cigarette trousers and knitted midis and you’re on the right track.
