For the longest time, white shoes, in any form, have reminded me of shoes I wore when I was a little girl going to fancy events. You know, those typical patent leather ones with the buckle that you would wear with matching white stockings…
But now, in adult world, they have shown up all over the spring and fall 2012 runways (how amaze are the ones pictured here from Derek Lam?) making me question, do I bring these white shoes back?
With anything, it totally depends on how you style them…
IMO, for a fashion novice, white heels are a huge no-no with most jeans that you’re seeing for Spring (and yes, I’m fully aware that Rihanna can pull them off- but most of us can’t!) but but paired with the right dress they are a huge yes-yes!
White heels like this platform pump from Aldo for $50 will create a cohesively chic look for the spring without making you feel like you’re five years old again- and Aldo gets major style points for adding in a natural element through the platform. It helps break up all the white!
And just because you are adopting the white pump into your look doesn’t mean it has to be all white. These off white heels by Jessica Simpson will add a very interesting color-blocked twist to any spring look.
I think for now, we’re giving this trend a “chic” stamp since they showed up all over every runway! So if you’re feeling a little fashion forward, why not give them a try and see how they work for you!
