I’m so happy that we are finally throwing caution to the wind when it comes to wardrobe styling, particularly when it comes to white shoes. I’ve always loved a great white (must be 100% leather) shoe, but must admit I’ve fallen prey to the stigma that I couldn’t be seen wearing them after Labor Day. Otherwise, the style police would surely haul me off to do some serious time for committing such a heinous fashion crime. Never really understood why white shoes got such a bad rap for so long and I won’t digress, I’m just glad we’ve come to our senses and learned to appreciate what white shoes can do for an outfit…ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANY SEASON!

Since white pairs so well with everything and always gives a clean classic look, we should always consider it an option. For drama, we can have white shoes contrast with an all-black ensemble, or help it balance bright reds or even allow it to fit right in with neutrals. In this post, I went with balance and paired a fabulous pair of white mules with different shades of gray and really like the ease of the look. Everything flows from head to toe, even though the mules are bright white as opposed to an off-white. Do yourself a favor and be sure to get at least one “real” white pair of shoes. Off-white is great. I have plenty off-white shoes, but there is a difference between the two.

Now, if you like a little drama in your style life, try an all-black ensemble: black sweater and skinny jeans with a white pump; or if you have some bright-colored midi skirts or dresses in your closet (reds, oranges, golds, etc.) add a white bootie. Trust me, it will give your outfit an instant lift. White just isn’t for the sneaker anymore, it’s for all of our style needs in winter, spring, summer or fall…day or night. I’ve also posted some of my favorite ones (shop the post link) for fall and beyond. Let me know what you think.

Today’s pick: gray ruffled turtleneck sweater with gray camouflage skinny jeans, paired with white mules, a gray PVC handbag and gold accessories.

Sweater (J Crew); jeans (Express); white mules (Nordstrom and Dillards); bag (Bloomingdales); earrings (Nordstrom)
