I have a feeling this post will generate a divide… White boots are like marmite; you either love or hate them! For some, the connection with garish 80s outfits will be too much to override, but for others (me included), there’s a new appreciation for white footwear – especially boots!
They may be man-repellers (and who cares about that?!!) but white boots have ditched their trashy reputation and are now considered the epitome of cool. Flick through the street-style pages of any magazine or take a look at my Pinterest page here and you’ll notice all the current fashion icons sporting a pair of sparkling white boots.
White boots are a great alternative to trainers. They will work with all your regular outfits – trust me! Just swap your white pumps for white boots when you want to elevate the look and turn up the sass factor! Yes, they make a bold statement but if you’ve already embraced red boots, then why not white???
I purchased a pair of white shoe-boots last year from Next (after much deliberation!!!) I’ve already worn them loads and I’m confident I will continue to get lots of wear out of them this coming year.
You may have been lucky to snap up a pair in the recent sales, as they were discounted at Next, Top Shop and Zara. Otherwise, there are still lots of style options around and white boots are a perfect choice for Spring.
Choose from pointy stiletto-heeled ankle boots, western-style boots or chic, flat boots. Just remember to pop some white scuff polish in with your weekly shop!!
Wear white boots with cropped jeans and a blazer for a sharp, contemporary look, or pair them with your favourite floral dress to avoid looking too whimsical. I wear my white shoe-boots with black opaque tights to the office for a 60s beatnik vibe.
If you aren’t convinced about white boots, please at least banish any negative ‘Essex girl’ connotations!!! This is an out-dated cliché – thankfully, a stereotype our daughters have no understanding of and hopefully will never need to… (Look up the campaign #iamanessexgirl)
Wear white boots with pride, safe in the knowledge that you look super-stylish!

So where do you sit with white boots? Do you love or hate them? I’d love to know…
