Trending: White Shoes


It’s long been a debate amongst shoe aficionados: the white pump – tacky or trendy?  Well this season, heels are getting white-hot with Diane Kruger, Rose Byrne and Blake Lively already a sartorial step ahead.

So just how do you wear these heavenly pumps (without looking like a runaway bride)? White can be a bit jarring when it comes to our feet, so go for classic pointy-toed styles, similar to your classic nude pair. Pare back the bright white with a monochromatic print or piece. Want to try the street style all-white look? Skip the pump and go for a strappy sandal, fitted skinnies and a casually tucked in tee.
