Rules for Wearing White Shoes

Wearing white shoes isn't for wallflowers. While the color white gets enough of a bad rap when it comes to clothing, people are even more reluctant to wear shoes in this hue. Keeping white shoes clean is half the battle, but the other half is wearing them well. Follow these rules and look stylish, before and after Labor Day.


    The old fashion adage that "You can't wear white after Labor Day" is a thing of the past.

Warm Weather

    Wearing white shoes in the spring and summer really has no rules. If you feel your feet and legs are too pale to don white shoes, hit yourself with a gradual self-tanner to gain color. Wedges are easy to wear in white, while a pair of white heels or flats are more bold and look great when channeling a mod look. Keep hair and makeup simple to avoid looking like you're wearing a costume.

Cold Weather

    Wearing white shoes in cold weather is hard, but it can be done. Instead of stark white, opt for shades of ivory, eggshell and cream, which look fantastic with cool and warm tones in your winter wardrobe. Suede or textured fabrics give white winter shoes a cozy feel.

Match Your Handbag

    To avoid having your shoes stick out like a sore thumb, keep your handbag light. It doesn't have to match exactly, but keeping the focal points on your bag and shoes will make wearing white shoes seamless.


    Spring and summer are the only seasons that work for white shoes on men. Look for a canvas, leather or nubuck boat shoe, which can be worn on the weekend with twill pants.
