Trend Spotting: How Celebrities, Models, And Street Style Stars Wear White Shoes

You know that pesky little “fashion rule” that decrees thou shalt never wear white shoes after Labor Day? Well, it looks like it’s officially been tossed out the window. In fact, it seems today’s style set—including actresses, models, bloggers, and editors—are tooling around in nothing but white shoes this winter.

The most prevalent type we’ve spotted: stark-white heels or wedges with a super-pointed toe, paired with seasonally-appropriate outfits (warm coats, hats, and cozy scarves, in many cases). What’s so refreshing about the white-shoes-in-winter trend is that it’s simply so fresh. Since the “rule” was followed so closely in the past, it’s not something we’ve seen a great deal of until now.

We’re also aware that it’s a mega-trend because every retailer is offering their own take on the pointed white heel, including fast-fashion favorites like Zara and H&M (whose been particularly adept at hawking several types this season). Another reason why it’s worth picking up a pair today? You can wear ’em all year long!

You wouldn't think pairing stark-white wedges with winter staples like a fur coat, scarf, and a beanie would necessarily work, but this showgoer during Milan Fashion Week shows us how it's done. Come spring, her outfit will look just as chic without the coat.

We love how actress Jenna Elfman punctuates a basic white T-shirt and white heels with a pair neutral trousers. This look would also work well with blue jeans, black trousers, or wide-leg printed silk pants.
