Here’s a question: Is something a new “trend” if it never truly went away in the first place? We’ve been wondering about this lately in regards to the ubiquitous white boot. They’ve always been around in some capacity, but now, it’s to the point where they’ve become inescapable—which, we guess, is what makes them feel so trendy.
In a sense, it’s fascinating that the white boot is everywhere because white clothing items, especially in wintertime, can be tricky territory to navigate. And items you’re wearing on your feet—and whose squeaky-clean appearance has the potential to be ruined with one fatal step—are probably the hardest. But, those who dare to jump on the always-moving bandwagon know just how wearable white boots are.
For one, white is a neutral so it goes with everything. Two, unlike the black boots that blend into the sea of everyone else’s black boots, the lightness of white boots make them truly eye-catching. And finally, white boots can feel as casual as a pair of sneakers or as fancy as a pair of formal heels. This means you can wear them with a pair of jeans and a nice sweater, definitely, but also with other more unexpected pieces. To give you a sense of what we mean, ahead, we put together a couple of inspirational outfits to help (gently) push you into the wonderful world of white boots. New year, new risks, eh?
