Spring fashion delights in white that’s used in unexpected ways. From the classic to the wildly iconoclastic, white turns up in a demure little dress paired with mile-high heels, rugged denim layered over fancy fabrics and a catwalk full of inspired white shoes guaranteed to steal center stage.
Soft and Sensational
Get your kicks in gear for spring with a feminine twist on a wardrobe classic, like Rocket Dog’s Penny sneakers with laces and white crochet uppers for an unexpected girly touch. Warmer days call for the merest wisp of a pair of sandals and a great pedicure. Franco Sarto’s Gaby thong sandals, with a hint of stacked heel, natural leather soles and detailed laser-cut white leather uppers, can be dressed up or down for casual day-tripping or al fresco dining on the terrace.
Working the Wedge
A classic style endlessly reinvents itself to stay fresh and surprising, and the wedge heel is perennially classic. A cork wedge, like Report’s Alexia peep-toe white cotton canvas wedge, is smart and stylish with spring’s light shades and linens. White gladiator wedges, like Report’s Megan, are a bit edgier. A cork wedge, like B.O.C.’s Andaya, is another versatile, but fashion-forward option with laser-cut white leather.
Whiter Shade of Pale
Thongs for your feet are youthful and saucy. Fergalicious’ Symbolic thong sandals pair white patent leather V-shaped thongs with a low buckled strap and a natural leather cushioned footbed. Wear them white-on-white with a lacy, knee-skimming baby doll dress or an arm-baring white linen sheath. A simple T-shaped dress of white velvet organza is fragile as a cloud – keep it grounded with a pair of pretty white fabric pumps with a wood stack heel. Jellypop’s Cheney pumps give you the charm and comfort of a round toe with embroidered white uppers and a modified hourglass heel.
For a super chic option, go minimal with white Bermuda shorts and white gladiator sandals, like Circus by Sam Edelman’s Morgan. The zipped heels and perforated triangles on the wide, white straps are both polished and playful. If you’re seeking a dressier option, then slip your feet into a pair of white sandals with a platform, like Naturalizer’s Danya strappy sandals, which will give you a height boost but still be comfortable to wear all day.
