White Shoes FTW
Remember when everyone had to wear white shoes throughout primary and secondary school as part of our uniform? Those were the good old days of conformity. The only way to stand out in a sea of fellow white shoe-shod students is to have your shoes come in a unique or coveted design, such as Chucks or (for the modern student) an expensive pair of Yeezy Boost 350s that smack of nouveau riche.
Now, however, white shoes are the very definition of très cool. They scream “I don’t care if I come in an incredibly inconvenient colour, and god forbid it rains while I’m out on the streets! My owner has an obligation to keep me spotless for the sake of their street cred!”, which, to their credit, makes them fairly easy to upkeep in sunny Singapore with its well-paved roads and relatively clean footpaths.
Want to learn how to sport white shoes without looking like you’re missing third period? Check out these 4 unique looks that’ll elevate your status and get you that street cred you crave.

No Need To Mule Over It
Pointy closed-toe mules are sophistication incarnate. That’s why the Nirasa mule by Aldo has drawn so much attention — its clean lines and classic colour make it look like an outfit inspiration off a Pinterest page.
In cases like these, it’s best to let the shoe stand out by having a simple outfit over it. The Kate Shirtdress in black by Lver has gorgeous cape detailing and a classic fit-and-flare silhouette, making it the perfect dress for the Aldo mules. To add a pop of colour to the outfit, sling Pleatation’s delightfully-coloured Orange Creamsicle Envelope Clutch over your shoulder!
