The Simple Shoes That Will Instantly Update Any Outfit
Since last year, the white-shoe trend is one that's been gaining ground. Sure, there are other things that automatically make you look rich: Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and wearing taxi heels (you know, the ones you can't really walk in but can be used with a chauffeur in tow) are all well and good, but nothing beats white shoes. Why? Well, by keeping them pristine, you've nailed an instant status-making way of saying "I look after my wardrobe, and I don't run through puddles to get to the bus."
They've successfully ditched their trashy 1980s reputation, and now a pair of gleaming courts, sandals or ankle boots will not only nicely punctuate any outfit (especially if you're wearing black), but they've also received plenty of designer approval from the most revered sources—so you're safe in the knowledge that white shoes are chic.
