Call me old fashioned, but ever since I was a little girl I have associated white shoes with nurses! Remember when they used to wear white head to toe?! Not that there is anything wrong with that career choice, but there is something about white kicks that seems so sterile. Not to mention they have the ability to make your feet look like boats! Fast forward a couple of decades and all of a sudden they’re “cool” and I own not one but two pairs! Here’s how to wear white sandals and look stylish while doing it.
To avoid the clown shoe appearance, always choose a strappy sandal. This is even more important if you’re wearing white shoes with white pants. Showing some skin will break up all of the white and add dimension. Click here to see how I style white tassel hem jeans with this pair of sandals.
If strappy shoes are out of the question, consider styling your white sandals with cropped pants or shorts. Bearing your ankles will also counter the enlarging abilities. As you can see in today’s look, I paired white sandals with ankle length jeans. That is all it takes.
Finally, color is key! Monochromatic looks are beautiful but unless you are bearing a lot of skin, I recommend adding color into the mix. Which look do you prefer? White jeans with a vibrant top, or blue jeans with a multicolored top? I cannot decide but I am certain that you will not find a cuter gingham shirt for $27!
