The Pretty Heel Trend That Me, Celebs, and Fashion Insiders Simply Can't Quit

White heels



While my main shoes in rotation right now are sneakers and cozy boots, I’ve been slipping into heels on occasion when I feel like getting dressed up. My vintage Prada kitten heels are one of the most-worn pairs in my closet, but the white heels I added into my closet last year are following in a close second. A pair of padded leather sandals with an architectural heel, I was excited to scoop them up from Pernille Teisbaek’s collaboration with Gia Couture (and the brand just brought them back if you still want to get your hands on them).

The white heels seamlessly fit into my (mostly neutral) wardrobe and have proven to be an essential shoe to pair with pretty much any outfit I pull out of my closet. Looking to celebs and fashion insiders who have been longtime fans of the shoe style, I don’t know why it took me so long to start wearing them myself. Ahead, see more about the white heel trend and plenty of cool outfit ideas if you're inspired to wear them.

How I'm Wearing White Heels

While white heels aren't a staple that I've always had in my closet, they won me over earlier last year. Specifically, the puffed versions I'm wearing here that seem to go with just about anything in my closet.
