Well, not everybody, but I promise it is a big deal at the moment.
White boots – all sizes and shapes – are this season’s footwear. Céline probably started the movement.
Are you shaking your heads and thinking, “no way” and “never in a million years”?
I hear you.
Except one part of me secretly thinks they look quite good if worn in the right way.
Digging deep in the memory bank had me remembering a few pairs of white boots. It would seem I have succumbed to this look before. As we know, there isn’t much we haven’t seen in some version or another, when it comes to fashion.
Here’s the thing.
I will wear white footwear but I don’t think I will be investing heavily in the idea. I like that white feet can shake up a too-familiar palette and can make edgy a classic look. All white feet do provide an unexpected twist.
The white sneaker is a trend I am heavily promoting, the white chelsea boot I love and a rain boot for weekend rambles is a definite. A high heel and pointed toe (as gorgeous as Sylvie is) may have to wait until I get a little more certain and then by that time we will all probably have moved on.
This theory of adapting the trends to suit us works brilliantly in this case.
White it will be when the occasion merits but in my way and my fashion. xv
