White is the New Black
Remember when white shoes after labor day were a serious "don't" for fashionable folks? Well, those days are officially gone—at least for now. White shoes are actually a fall 2017 must among the style set. For everyone else, white shoes can be tough enough to pull off during the spring and summer, let alone fall and winter. Fret not if you find the trend a bit challenging. We've got a few tips to help you step confidently into this trend. The first step is actually accepting that white shoes can look great during the chilly seasons and realizing that they should look pretty different from the ones you'd wear May-August.
A few things to keep in mind as you start assembling your lewks:
- Keep the silhouette simple
- Wear with season-right (and on-trend) outfits—a frilly mini may look like you're still trying to hold onto summer.
- A black outsole helps keep things season-right and adds a bit of monochromatic edge
- Don't be afraid to experiment with brightly colored pairings
