LindsayWe've talked about white shoes before. They can be very difficult to wear if you're over the age of 8 and not planning to get married any time soon. But designers continue to make them a trend, as if to test us. The trick is to avoid bridal fabrics like satin and silk, and go for shoes that are easy to keep clean and trimmed or decorated with darker colours for contrast. These mini-platforms from Linea Paolo (the 'Lindsay' for $89.95) are just right. But if you're still cautious, they also come in black.
