Trend report: White shoes for summer
Once the hallmark of an 'Essex girl', the white heel has had a rebrand this summer; adopted by style bloggers and fashion editors into their wardrobes - from classic espadrilles to modern sports luxe styles. A great alternative to harsh black, yet equally as versatile, a white summer sandal feels fresher and lighter - great for enhancing a tan and perfect for pairing with denim, florals or to complete this season's 'all-white' look with linens and floaty broderie anglaise dresses.
Here are our 5 top styles for summer:
These Castaner ankle-tie, wedge espadrilles are the perfect addition to any summer capsule wardrobe - these and some slides for the beach and your holiday packing is done. We love their magical leg lengthening ability (as worn by the gorgeous Lydia Millen above) and their classic, feminine appeal.
Brand new in, these metal toe-capped, white leather cowboy boots put the perfect summer spin on a classic style, the block heel makes them super comfortable to wear, paired with bare legs and maxi skirts or denim cut-offs - perfect for this summer's music festivals.
When black feels too heavy but you want to keep your look minimal, these modern mules from Senso are the perfect option. Great for summer events, the frill and smocking detail add a design touch - just had a pop of colour to your pedi and you're good to go.
A bit of a wild card, literally, these python print cage heels from Lola Cruz are the perfect summer party shoe. Monochrome, so will go with anything, they're an elegant shape that will have you dancing till dawn...
If you're looking for a great everyday, on-trend white slide for summer - this is it. The frill detail and contrast black stitching elevate the design, perfect worn with a kaftan around the pool, or with a silk maxi dress for elegant summer nights.
