White Shoes: An After Memorial Day Must

With Memorial Day behind us, it’s time to break out one of Spring’s hottest trends, white shoes. Just a year ago today I was defending the honor of white footwear at a dinner party. While some people, including my fellow dinner guests, believe the age-old notion that white shoes look “cheap,” I can assure you that is no longer the case. In fact, if you really think about it, white shoes are a luxury, because God knows wearing ivory colored kicks is anything but practical. While white colored footwear might not be the easiest to keep clean, I find that white shoes have the ability to elevate just about any outfit, which is probably why I can’t stop buying them. From barely-there heeled sandals, to ivory colored midi heels, and a pair of oxfords in the same hue, you could say my obsession with white shoes is a bit overzealous. While I don’t expect everyone to love white footwear as much as I do, I highly recommend investing in a pair or two for spring. Here, a roundup of the best pearly hued kicks on the market.
