Fashion Bomb 101: How to Wear White Pumps
By Claire

So I’ve received a surprising amount of e-mails asking how to style white pumps!
What was deemed ‘tacky’ a ‘bad look’ and ‘only for church’ a mere 9 months ago, is now fashionable, thanks to style stars like Kim Kardashian and Solange Knowles giving the accessory their cosign.

Brittny writes, “I have been itching to try the white shoe trend, but I am having trouble on how to style it. Should I wear jeans, dress, or even pair it with a white bag?”

Allie adds, “I know last year around Spring 2012, you did a fashion post about how to rock white shoes with a few celebrities. Is it possible you can give an updated version of it to accommodate the spring trends for this year? A what to wear with white pumps 2013?”
Sure! Basically you wear them the same way you would at any time. White, like black or nude, is a neutral color that can go with just about everything. Wear them as the exclamation point to a colorful or patterned look. Jeans, a dress…whatever you like. Have fun with it!

To answer Brittny’s question, you do not necessarily have to wear a white purse. A colorful handbag that goes with your ensemble would work as well (and might work better!).

If you feel like playing it safe , of course a white purse would coordinate, as Karolina Kurkova and Jennifer Lopez display.

    I’ve never been against white pumps. I’ve been wearing them on & off for years

  6. DomDom says:

    I don’t get why white pumps are only getting shine now? Rihanna was rocking white pumps during the rated r era, ahead of the pack as usual

  7. Crystal says:

    @DomDom, I agree. Rihanna is always YEARS ahead of the trends, hell, she creates the trends.

  8. Angela says:

    Great post! thanks.

  9. Angela says:

    All the outfits look nice, but Karolina killed it! Totally unexpected.. I would rock it fo sho!

  10. bella says:

    Thank you Claire! Now your (baby) readers should only be a couple of seasons behind, instead of years.. <3

  14. HairOfTheDay says:

    I’ve had a thing for white pumps for years, was unaware of the wariness surrounding them! I think they can add a chic touch to an outfit.

  15. Kitty B. says:

    @Bar i believe thats her Psoriasis, looks like she was having a breakout that day..

  16. toni says:

    Nice post… I usually only wear white pumps for sorority functions, but these suggestions are cute!

  17. Andie says:

    Im still in the air with white shoes despite the trend. I do like kim k in all white and keri. If I could have the g zanoti pair I would DEF give it a go

  18. Mrs windy city says:

    I have big stompers sooooooo I don’t know. I may try

  19. Kisha says:

    I remember the post from last year and everybody including myself was against the white pumps. Seeing how these ladies styled them is encouraging. They make them look very chic and fashion forward. I am now a believer lol. Thanks Claire!

  20. LOLO says:

    Ive been itchin to try this trend too! Love this post…it looks like the key to it not lookin “tacky” is for the white shoe to be really sleek and not clunky like a platform

  21. binks says:

    Death to white shoes! Yeah, I’ am still anti this trend, only a handful of ocassion white shoes actually look good but for the most part they still cheapen an outfit to me.

  22. Gugu Lethu says:

    I’ve always liked and wore pumps even though I was told yrs ago that its a fashion faux-pas. Thank I only adhere to my own rules. That suit Karolina is wearing is exquisite.

  23. Gugu Lethu says:

    *goodness

  24. yusufswifee says:

    well done, claire. But sasquatch is going to continue to pass on this trend. Maybe if they were a gift from an insanely hot man who needed to be encouraged for his good behavior….I’d swoon and wear them in his presence only…but I digress!

  25. Jen says:

    I always thought they would look like a nurse., but they look amazing in all of the above celebrities. I guess i’d have to try it.

  26. DIVA says:

    one trend I wont be jumping on
