Last season, although very sceptical, I took the plunge and entered the world of the white boot trend. Treading cautiously I opted for a pair of kitten heel white boots for £19.99 from New Look’s finest shoe shelves.
Shopping hack: if ever in doubt always go for a cheaper option before investing. New Look is that one stop shop for affordable shoes that will stand the test of time despite what the price tag would have you think. I don’t know how they do it but they have the solution every time.
For someone who approached the trend with a not-so open mind, not-so silently questioning how the shoe had managed to make its way back into fashion in 2018 in the first place, boy was I in for a surprise. For the sake of being both proud and stubborn, I wish I could say I hated them but truthfully, I now don’t know how my wardrobe would survive without those beloved white boots.
In seasons gone by, it’s always been the black boot that unquestionably reigned supreme within the winter shoe department. However, the last few seasons have seen the new neutral on the block, the winter white, worm its way into our wardrobes where it looks set to stay for the foreseeable future – much to my surprising pleasure.
Whether it’s over the knee, cowboy inspired or biker boots, white boots have become the go-to boot for every kind of outfit – dresses, skirts and trousers included.
By extension of the white boot love, chances are you’ll find yourself embracing a lot of colour. Trust me when I say, nothing will make you obsess over 80s trends like a white shoe so bring on the satin blouses and the puffball dresses. Incomparable to all other accessories of the season, nothing will relevant an outfit quite like a white boot.
