If you're anything like most women, you probably own around 19 pairs of shoes. This makes sense- you can never have too much fab footwear to pair with your fave outfits!
Summertime vibes necessitate flip-flops, so these shoes should be your focus this season. White sandals are a must-have since they go with literally everything.
Still, it's important that you get some style (and cleaning) tips for these timeless shoes. Read on to learn how you can keep them fashionable and fine.
Styling White Sandals: The Fashionable Girl's Guide
White sandals are trendy because you can wear them with any colors you want. They mellow out vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges. You'll get the aesthetic of the soft glow of summer sunsets rather than of overly sharp, passionate fire.
However, we'd be lying if we said this was the #1 way to wear beach sandals this season. Becoming a beachy babe is the best way that you can showcase your white sandals.
This means wearing them with blue or seafoam green apparel to give yourself the vibes of ocean waves with soft white sand. Dresses are ideal in these cases because they'll bell out around your legs like waves.
White flip flops also go great with beige short-shorts or sand-colored cargo pants. You have a lot of options!
Flat, Funky, and Fabulous Footwear
Flats are the classic flip flop style because they're comfortable and go with anything. You won't get sore feet when you go with these simple styles. They're designed for maximum comfort and support.
White flats are also ideal for showing off your favorite ankle bracelets. Flats are better than wedges for showcasing anklets since they have less material to them, making the ankle bracelet stand out. There also are no other colors to be distracted by.
Wonderful Women's Wedges (White Edition)
Wedges are awesome in a lot of different situations. They're perfect for both outdoor and indoor formal events. They're also a great choice for dates and nights out where you just want to look and feel confident.
You can get simple and timeless wedges in a white and tan combo. The strap will be pure white and look perfect with the tan wedge heel. To make the most of this sandal, wear it with beige or tan shorts with a white top.
Daytime Dresses (and Sundown Skirts)
The type of sandal that you wear with a dress or skirt will depend on the length of your outfit.
If you're wearing a long dress, wedges are likely the right choice. They'll add some height to you so that your feet still are visible under a maxi dress. This will make you look taller and more elegant rather than short and stout.
On the flip side, wearing wedges with short dresses or those that lay right above or below the knee is a poor choice. They'll make your legs look long and gangly even if you have a perfect form. Flat flip flops aren't just a comfy option here- they accentuate and flatter your legs perfectly.
Superb Shorts and Cool Capris
White sandals go with shorts of pretty much any color. Pastel-hued denim is really trendy right now, and using white flip flops ensures that the hues don't clash. They're versatile and en vogue. This is also the case for capris if you're feeling daring.
Lots of people don't like capris because they think that you look shorter in them. This is sad since they're really just not wearing the right shoes. Tall platform sandals or wedges will add height to your appearance and accentuate your calves.
How to Care for Your White Flip Flops
White women's sandals are definitely a fashion 'yes.' Unfortunately, though, many people have trouble ensuring that their white flip-flops actually stay white. When you walk around outdoors, they're likely to gather mud, dirt, and grime that mars the color.
Since you don't want your sandals to die an ugly and premature death, you'll need to know how to clean them properly. This will stop them from becoming discolored by regular wear and tear. They can last for many years if you care for them properly!
Mind Your Step
White sandals will obviously get dirty with wear and tear no matter what you do. However, there's still a lot to be said for making sure that you don't wear them in conditions that could get them dirtier than at other times.
Don't bring them out into the rain where you'll step in a mud puddle- save your black sandals for these conditions. Don't walk into the ocean while still wearing your white flip flops. Hold them in your hand or leave them on the shore.
Being a bit more mindful of where you step when wearing white shoes goes a long way.
Clean the Right Way
Still, dirt and grime buildup is inevitable over time, so you'll need to know how to clean your shoes. While most people think that cleaning methods vary from material to material, there are some surefire ways to clean shoes made from anything.
Here are the steps that you'll need to follow:
- Use a small-bristled brush to remove loose dirt from the shoe's surface
- Mix 3 tbsp baking soda with 1 tbsp white vinegar in a small bowl
- Dip a toothbrush in the mixture and scrub softly
- Use a bleach pen on spots that just won't go away
This easy process will eliminate all major stains and stop you from needing to buy new shoes.
