Insta-Spring! Just Add These Chic White Shoes

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 • Permalink • 

Want to turn just about any ensemble into a spring look? All you need is a pair of fabulous white shoes. They instantly lighten up any outfit, and they are particularly great for adding a little minimalist-chic edge.

Helpful hint: even if you live where the threat of spring showers is low, adding a waterproofing protectant spray before the first wear will help keep your new shoes gleaming white.

These are some of my favorite takes on the white shoe for spring…

I’ve been eyeing these beauties since fall. The gum sole gives the classic derby a bit of industrial flair.

Yes, white shoes can be appropriate in a professional work setting. These Dorateymur slingbacks are perfect.

Everlane’s newest sell-out shoe is, shockingly, still available in most sizes in white. Word is that it feels like a sneaker, but looks like a dressy flat. Snap it up right now.
