You’re probably familiar with showing a little cleavage, a little leg, or even some midriff…but how about showing a little hip? I must say, it’s surprisingly fun, and a great opportunity to show off an embellished belt (I wear this one all the time, but the embellishments that make it unique are usually hidden by layers and shirt hems).
I’ve talked before about how white shoes can be used as “fashion bookends” to cap the top and bottom of an outfit with the same color in an aesthetically pleasing way, and I’ve used them really similarly here. The white shoes complement the contrasting white stripes of the sweater, and I feel just brings the color palette full circle in a way that feels “complete”.
I wasn’t totally sure I’d like white shoes when I first picked these up, and purposely got a pair that weren’t too expensive in an effort to try out the trend before investing . White shoes have proved their purpose, and after some thought, I’m planning their upgrade. I think the trick to white shoes is getting less shoe. White has a tendency to make things look big and chunky, so I’m thinking a sleeker shoe silhouette would be much more flattering. I’m thinking a d’orsay style would look really nice, and I’d also like to find a 3 inch heel to replace these 4 inchers, since I’ve already determined that’s my ideal heel height. I have my eye on these 3 inch d’orsays, but am wondering if the off-white color would be more or less versatile than a true bright white…hmmm….
