For our third and final shoe trend update we’re tackling a subject previously known for making most stylish women break out in a rash – white shoes! If you thought this was a no no for fear of association with The Dreaded White Stiletto stigma then look no further than the SS12 catwalks from the likes of DVF, Nina Ricci and The Row to see white everywhere.
The uber cool Olsen twins’ SS12 collection was primarily white and who can forget Kate Moss stepping off that Louis Vuitton carousel in a dress that dreams are made of… and white heels!
Take a look at some of our favourite designs that changed our minds about heels in this perennial summer hue…
For a touch of summer luxe add tan and camel to your white heels – we’re coveting these white snakeskin round toe courts with their camel leather toe cap and sprinkling of studs on the counter back. A simple platform sandal looks like it’s stepped straight off the catwalk when you add in buttery camel leather platform and heel detail.
For a subtle statement, try out a brogue design – these white patent and tan leather peep toes would be perfect for taking you from the office to the cocktail bar. For day long comfort, a lower 1.5″ heel is available at the checkout stage. Mix your summer whites with metallics and finish off your look with these oh so elegant white Italian satin peep toe platforms with a subtle metallic accent.
This beautifully classic ballet flat in white and tan leather with a small bow and matching trim would elongate any tanned leg this summer and screams pure Hampton’s chic. Every fashion savvy girl knows that a metallic toe cap on a sexy pointed court is the shoe of the season and we’re lusting after this glamorous white snakeskin pointed court with a dazzling silver metallic toe cap and Swarovski diamante embellished ankle strap.
