I keep seeing cute white shoes in stores and I want to buy some, but I'm not sur
So many designers showed white shoes on the runway-they were everywhere from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Jil Sander-but I agree that finding the right pair can be tricky. I really love contemporary takes on classic menswear styles, like a patent lace-up oxford or an investment-worthy perforated loafer. If you can't do flats, but you still want that borrowed-from-the-boys look, try a heeled brogue; Bally's version is like a really chic spectator shoe and its brown accents make it easy to wear. A pointy pump is another excellent option because it's the perfect combination of sophistication (the timeless silhouette) and spirit (white is youthful). I'm also totally obsessed with Alexander Wang's ankle-strap mules-they're just perfect. While deciding which white shoes are right for you might take a little time, coming up with outfits to wear them with is definitely easier. You can wear any of these options with a classic jean, like a mid-blue skinny jean or a cropped style in a darker wash, and a summery button-down shirt for an effortlessly current look. White shoes also would look really chic with more polished, monochromatic pieces, like a black t-shirt and trouser combo or a sleeveless blouse and pencil skirt. If you're a little more daring, pair these shoes with a bright outfit-like neon pink pants and an equally vivid top-or a pajama-inspired look, as I mentioned in a recent column. No matter how you style them, one thing's for sure: stepping out in white shoes is a must-do this spring!
