Forget about that “no white after Labor Day” rule. This crisp, light neutral has long been a year- round favorite of ours, and a close runner up to our all-black wardrobe; especially during the warmer months. It’s clean, cool, and when worn correctly, mimics the essence of truly effortless Parisian style in New York form.
Case in point, Dîner en Blanc - an elegant fête that originated in Paris and has since expanded to our beloved NYC. This self-proclaimed “chic-picnic” brings thousands together to enjoy an evening of food, beauty, and style (obvi). While the location is kept a secret until the very last minute, there is one well known requirement of guests; an all-white ensemble.

If you’ve been keeping up with the summer 411, you know that white shoes are having a major moment, so what better time to incorporate the hot to trot footwear trend then a glam night out in the city we call home? If you need some inspo on what to wear, try our current color crush; coconut. The latest batch of shoe arrivals include heels, flats, sandals, and slides in this season’s chicest shade of white.
The Pina Kitten Heel is everything we imagine of French style - feminine, cool, and classic. Soft leather and a ladylike bow make this kitten heel a timeless closet staple. The Carlie Mule is a mid-height heel that pairs well with any combo of all-white, including the Lennox Wicker Crossbody in Marshmallow.
If you’re not ready to rock an open toe shoe just yet, the Annika Flat has a chic pointed toe and is ready for any adventure. The latest version of our everyday summer sandal comes in the form of detailed slides. The Fargo Sandal has a sleek buckle, toe loop detail, and side cut out to create a flattering fit on your foot, while the Moira slide has boho braided leather straps and is easy to slip on and go. Pair your new sandals with the Valentina Straw Tote in Marshmallow for the perfect on-the-go style.
