TREND ALERT: White Pumps are in for Summer 2013

This week's trend alert is a questionable one for me - the white shoe. All the fashion bloggers a screaming the praises of the white pump/sandal for summer 2013. However, I am on the fence. Personally, I hate white shoes (with the exception of sneakers). White shoes get dirty quick, scuffed up, and start reminding me of 1980's prostitute, not 2013 fashion girl. 

But I couldn't let me personal conviction keep me from exploring the option of adding the white shoe to my repertoire this summer. So, I went to Polyvore.com to play around with the trend. Slowly, but surely, I started realizing how white pumps can work for summer 2013. Check it out:



Going Back to Cali


The first look, 'Going Back to Cali', summer utilizes the white pump as an element in modern color-blocking. This look pulls a couple of hot trends of the season: chain link jewelry, skater skirts, neon accessories, and cropped top shirts. The white pumps gives this look a further playful kick.


Slouch Luxe


This look, 'Slouch Luxe' utilizes a white t-strap pump as an addition to what could be a summer casual look. This look could easily be changed with flat sandals and a slouchy bag. But adding these cute pumps, classic ring, and clutch, makes this outfit perfect for going out on the town. Oh yeah, check out the heavy embellished sunnies - ULTRA trendy!


Stripped Away


This last look, 'Stripped Away', made me a believer. For me, the key to rocking the white shoe trend is to make sure it's the perfect accent to a well pulled together ensemble. Currently, I'm in love with stripes and this cute dress with neon detailing is a great transition piece. You can rock this look from day til night. The white strappy sandal is super cute and non-intrusive to the total look.

So I hope these looks encourage you to add the white pump to your summer look.
