To some, summer is swimsuit season. To others, it’s rosé season or picnic season. But for some, all that matters is that it’s white dress season. Nothing says summer to me quite like a white dress. And because they’re such a blank canvas, there’s a lot you can do to make a white dress feel fresh each summer. One of those things is switching up your shoes.
Shoe color trends are a thing, and you’d be remiss not to wear some of this season’s most popular colors (or most reliable neutrals) with your favorite white dress. The six shoe colors below are a mix of classic shades and trendy hues—and all of them look amazing with white dresses. Shoes in these popular colors abound on the market, but I found the chicest ones (as one does when they’re a Who What Wear editor). Scroll to shop them and some of my favorite white dresses for summer 2023, including the Reformation dress featured alongside each shoe color trend.
