Do you have a pair of white shoes in your closet? I’m assuming you may have a pair of white sneakers. But how about a different style of flats or heels? White shoes can add an unexpected, on trend look to your outfits. Let’s look at the best white shoes for women – and how you could wear them.
Best white shoes for women
Before we move onto white shoes outfits, let’s look at some of the styles of shoe you could choose to add to your existing outfits.
White pumps were particularly on-trend in the 80s, and they’re having another style moment now. Kim @kimair above (read her style interview here) wears her white shoes with an asymmetric skirt and blazer.
Steve Madden white flats
Of course, you don’t have to opt for heels. A pair of white flats like the Steve Madden loafers (below) can look just as stylish. Reviewers say they are flexible and stylish.
Sam Edelman loafer
If you want to choose a pair of white heels that are easy to walk in, and you can wear to your summer events, block heeled sandals can be ideal. Reviewers say they combine beauty and comfort.
For summer, to go with your shorts or summer dresses, how about the designer-inspired Sam Edelman cut outs (below). The contrasting footbed adds an element of interest.

White shoe boots
For a summer style that won’t date, a pair of Birkenstock can be a good investment that you can wear summer after summer with your shorts or dresses.

Now that you have chosen your favorite style of shoes, what should you wear them with? Take a look below for some outfit ideas.
1. With other neutrals
Wearing an all neutral outfit can look incredibly classy. Team your white shoes with other neutrals like your white jeans and trench coat. I like the color block element of the Karen Millen trench coat (below).

2. With black for a monochrome look

3. With a shirt dress for work or play
Do you already have a shirt dress in your closet? How about updating it with a pair of white shoes?
4. With boyfriend jeans
A pair of smart white shoes can add an unexpected element to your more casual looks. Abi @stealmystyle40 above shows how you can wear your white shoes with crop jeans. Opting for a crop style makes sure that you show off your shoes.

5. With palazzo pants
For a summer vacation or event, a pair of palazzos with white wedges can work really well.
6. with your LBD
While it may be easier to think about wearing dark shades with your little black dress, adding a pair of white shoes can breathe new life into outfits you’ve had for ages. You can make your black dress summer ready by teaming with white shoes and a denim jacket.
7. with bright pants

8. With a leather skirt
If you tend to only wear the leather items in your closet during the winter months, adding a pair of white shoes can give them a different look, making them suitable for wearing year-round.
9. With your summer dresses
