how to wear white shoes after labor day

White shoes might be one of the most surprising trends of the last few seasons.  Even more surprising? This footwear trend has, er, legs, and is sticking around for fall. Where we used to think of white shoes as the stuff of first communions and cheesy ’80s ensembles, they’ve gotten a total cool-girl makeover, adding an unexpected pop to all types of outfits. They felt perfect for summer with mini dresses, shorts, rompers, and more, so why not keep these versatile wardrobe MVPs around to brighten up your fall looks?

It’s easier than you think. Instead of reaching for your go-to black or nude shoes, swap them out for a stark white style. Whether you’re rocking a rich fall floral, distressed denim, vinyl, or suede, you’ll find this footwear trend gives you an instant refresh. If you need some outfit inspiration to get you started, check out four ways to style white shoes for fall ahead.

Transition into a new season with a breezy skirt in rich hues and a short sleeve mock neck top, paired with strappy white sandals.  

Add a sleek finishing touch to a ruffly wrap top and frayed jeans with white mules.

Tone down a vegan patent mini skirt for daytime with a graphic tee, denim jacket, and pointy white loafers.

Layer a suede moto jacket over a polka dot mini dress with white ankle boots and cat eye sunglasses, and you’ve got a flirty, vintage vibe that’s perfect for fall.
