Must Have: White Shoes

Ok so I know that white shoes aren’t anything new BUT I do think that white shoes sometimes get a bit of a bad rap. We all love our white sneakers but for some reason, white heels and white sandals just don’t seem to get the same level of respect. This Spring however, it’s going to be hard to ignore white shoes as they’re absolutely everywhere from sneakers to sandals to heels and yes, even combat boots and I’m 100% on board.

When it comes to selecting our “light” neutral shoes, we seem to always opt for nude when a white shoe would really be just as good. Now I’m not advocating that you get rid of all your nude shoes, I just think it’s time to open your heart (and your closet) to white. IMHO, white adds more of a cool-girl edge to your look than nude and definitely makes more of a statement (after all, the whole point of a nude shoe is that it disappears). Plus, white looks amazing with denim and black as well as this season’s hottest colours like mustard, coral and neon.

So, here is just a taste of some of the white shoes out there right now, all available at Coquitlam Centre.


Pair this d'Orsay shoe with everything from denim to skirts to sundresses. What is a d'Orsay shoe you ask? It's any shoe that's cut away at the side to reveal the arch of your foot (doesn't matter what sort of heel, toe, straps...the shoe also has). This one just happens to have an ankle strap, making it easier to walk in.
