So white boots have been everywhere lately. Celebs and street style stars have been embracing this trend and I am obsessed with it to say the least. However, I have a problem though. I have a closet full of black shoes and if I put anything other than the colour black on my feet I feel silly. I am completely stuck in a footwear rut and I am desperate to break free. So before I fall face first into the “white boots trend”, which is pretty daunting for a black shoe hoarder, I decided that I will stick to what I know and buy white loafers. For those of you that don’t know I am a loafer freak, so by deciding to buy a white loafers I did not stretch to far out of the comfort zone.
So late December last year I went to one of our local department stores and got myself a reasonably prices pair of white “gucci-dupe” loafers. I’ve managed to style them with black pants and a mustard yellow knit, but that is as far as I got. Sigh! The struggle is real when it comes to styling these babies. So I decided that I need to do some research on how to style white loafers but I couldn't find anything inspirational. Then it occurred to me, it doesn’t necessarily have to be loafers that your are looking for, just Google white boots or shoes! At last I got amazing inspiration from some of my favourite bloggers like Pernille and Style Heroine, as well as celebs like Kendall, Gigi and Bella. Armed with this inspo I think I will be able to create an endless amount of looks from pieces I already have in my wardrobe.
Needless to say, I think I will definitely be taking the plunge with those white boots for winter. Now I just need to find the perfect pair. Below are some of my current favourites…
