Has styling your white shoes been difficult for you? You're not alone! Many find styling their white shoes difficult because they don't know what to wear them with, which is why we've put together this helpful guide.
White shoes are a wardrobe staple and one of the most versatile pieces of footwear that you can own because they can be worn for many occasions.
With the right styling, white shoes can take your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary and make you look pulled together.
In this guide, we will be showing you how to style your white shoes for 5 different occasions.
Worried about what to wear with your white shoes on different occasions? Here are what types of white shoes to style for 5 different occasions:
1. Date Night
If you're aiming to dress up for date night, so your date is head over heels for you, then go for a pair of heels such as white lace-up heels or white shoes with bows with a mini or slinky slip dress.
Both of these looks are sexy yet sophisticated without being too over the top; complete them by adding a pair of dangly earrings and bracelet, a clutch bag, and a red or pink lip for some extra sass.
If you're feeling a little bit more laidback or don't feel like wearing a dress, then go for a pair of white flats with dress pants, slacks or trousers, and a button-down shirt or satin blouse.
2. Brunch With The Girls
For a chic yet comfortable look that's perfect for catching up with the girls over brunch, style a pair of mid-heeled sandals with ripped jeans and an off-the-shoulder top or heeled mules with a denim skirt and a blouse, linen shirt, or t-shirt; and if it's chili outside you can add a jacket or cardigan for extra warmth.
This look is perfect for a laid-back brunch with friends, but you'll still look put-together; if you're looking to dress up your casual outfit, add a blazer.
With that being said, don't forget your mini purse to keep your items close but hands-free for mimosas, and accessorize with simple jewelry and some sunglasses.
3. Girls' Night Out
Going out with the girls for drinks and dinner or to a party? Perhaps both? Then you need a comfortable yet stylish look so that you can enjoy and dance the night away.
Go for something body-hugging to accentuate your figure, like a fitted mini dress or jumpsuit, and add a pair of simple or strappy white heels to lengthen your legs.
If you're looking for a fit that's more comfortable but it's still eye-catching, try a pair of dress pants or leather pants with an off-the-shoulder top, crop top, or bodysuit.
Both looks are not only trendy but are great outfits for a night out for drinks at a bar or club because it shows off your figure but is still comfortable enough to eat and dance in; add a pair of statement earrings and a clutch bag to complete the look.
Whichever fit you choose, all of the looks are sure to turn heads when you hit the town with your girlfriends, but the most important part is: your girls!
So, make sure to coordinate with your squad so you can take some amazing pictures together; and don't forget your clutch purse to keep your lipstick, phone, and IDs close by.
4. Business Meeting Or Day At The Office
Whether you're heading into a job interview, giving a presentation, closing a deal, or just going to work for a casual day, you want to look both professional and stylish.
For a look that's polished and professional yet stylish, go for a pair of white loafers or pumps with wide-leg trousers or a pencil skirt; add a button-down shirt, blouse, or even a turtleneck to keep it office-appropriate.
This look is fashionable and says that you mean business; to add a bit of personality to your look and finish off the look, add a tailored blazer for an extra touch of professionalism.
Make sure your shoes are polished and your clothing is wrinkle-free, so you look put-together and like you're ready to take on the world.
5. Wedding Guest
When it comes to weddings, you want to look your best but be comfortable while respecting the dress code.
For a simple yet elegant and comfortable look, go for a pair of white formal heels with a simple ballgown or jumpsuit (if that's more your style); and add a scarf or shawl if the wedding is outdoors or in a cooler climate.
If you're looking for the perfect dress for a summer or spring wedding, try a pair of heeled sandals with a pretty tulle evening gown.
But, if you want to go all out because it's a more formal wedding, consider wearing a pair of formal white heels with a more eye-catching ball gown.
All looks are stylish and elegant and appropriate for a wedding, but the key is to be comfortable so you can enjoy the night; add some jewelry and a clutch bag to finish off the looks.
Tips For When You're Wearing White Shoes
If you're going out and have made up your mind about wearing white shoes, then there are a few tips you need to consider and keep in mind:
- Make sure that your shoes are the right size. It's very important to get the right size, because if you don't, your shoes will be uncomfortable and you'll probably end up with blisters.
- Make sure that your shoes are clean. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to clean their shoes before they wear them out.
- White shoes can be a great way to add a touch of elegance to an outfit.
- Wearing white shoes with denim is always a good idea. The classic combination works for casual and dressier occasions because the contrast between the two colors looks great.
- If you are wearing brightly colored clothing with many patterns, white shoes can help tone down and tie the overall look together. But if you're wearing a lighter-colored outfit, consider matching your shoes to your handbag or jewelry for contrast.
- When in doubt, keep it simple. If you're not sure what to wear with your white shoes, then just keep it simple and pair them with a basic tee or tank top and a pair of jeans or shorts. This is a classic, easy-to-wear look that will always look great.
- Enjoy yourself! Wearing white shoes can be a lot of fun, so make sure you enjoy the experience and don't let anyone else's opinion ruin it for you.
