Though it was once taboo to wear any white garments after Labor Day, the restriction has largely been lifted as fashionistas clamored for the acceptance of sweaters, turtlenecks, and coats in snowy hues. But there’s one area where the “no white after Labor Day” moratorium persists: footwear.
If you are among the legions of women who stash away their winter footwear after Labor Day, then take advantage of the last days of summer to flaunt some breezy, crisp, summer white shoes.
For a youthful and sporty look, try the slip-on Dream Out Loud “Caley” boat shoes, featuring white canvas uppers and decorative lacing details that will add a nautical flair to any ensemble — whether it involves cut-off denim shorts, a striped tank dress, or colorful skinny jeans.
For a more coquettish effect, slip into the Kisses “Too Anchor” espadrille wedge sandals, which feature woven straps in a T-bar construction, open toes to flaunt your pedicured toes, and summery, 4-inch tall, jute-wrapped wedge heels. Whether pairing these with a cheeky romper, tailored shorts, a lacy sundress, or a flouncy skirt, these wedge sandals will add a feminine touch to your end-of-summer look.
If you’re aiming for a laid-back look, choose a pair of sporty white sandals like the slip-on Route 66 “Woodstock” slide sandals, which feature a wide faux leather strap with an adjustable, silver-toned buckle. Designed to maximize comfort, these sandals feature a molded foot bed covered with soft suede microfiber and a treaded rubber outsole for traction. With these shoes, you’ll be ”white” on track to kiss summer goodbye in style.
