White Pointed Toe Pumps

When you get dressed, do you ever say to yourself, “I wish I had (fill in the blank)…“?

As I try to navigate a more minimalist approach to style, I find myself easily zoning in on those missing items and recognizing any gaps I have in my wardrobe. It’s kind of refreshing to shop with a purpose rather than shop just for recreation and come home with a lot of nice things that end up going unworn… and this is coming from a woman who likes loves to shop!

One of this season’s missing pieces to my wardrobe puzzle is a pair of white pointed toe pumps.

Yes, white.

Yes, in the dead of winter.

No, I’m not crazy.

I’ve been seeing great editorials and street style images with a winter appropriate look accented with crisp white pointed toe pumps. Simple, yet striking.

Now, this is not the place or time to get all fancy with the shoe. What we’re looking for here is a well-made, single sole, pointed toe pump — just in le blanc! No straps, embellishments, patent or platform; When combined with the white, those are all a bit too Frederick’s of Hollywood/exotic dancer material. Which is clearly a different type of street style than the one I am generally referencing!

Oh, and remember yesterday’s focus on Pantone’s 2016 COLOR OF THE YEAR?! A white pointed toe pump would look amazing against the soft pastel hues. Try it out now with a menswear inspired coat and trousers, or later this spring/summer with a feminine dress.

Here are a few other white pumps that have caught my eye for all lifestyles and budgets:
