French pop star Francoise Hardy wore white boots with her miniskirts and matching suit sets throughout the 1960s, go-go dancers were essentially synonymous with the shiny platform iteration, and don't forget while Nancy Sinatra sang "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" she was doing so in a pair of — you guessed it — white boots. Fast forward to the present day, and the trend is just as relevant as it once was. Street style stars have made white boots an outfit staple not just for winter, but year-round wear. That said, there's really no way around the fact that a pair of bright white boots is far more of a statement than your ubiquitous black booties, which is no cause for panic but simply a call for a little outfit creativity.
As it usually goes these days, when one is in need of some fresh outfit ideas, the quickest way to fuel up is Instagram. A few taps and scrolls can open up a world of inspiration for not only accessible approaches to styling of-the-moment pieces (like white boots), but also versatile wardrobe staples (also white boots). Below, you'll find 15 women who have illustrated with ease how they wear their favorite white boots at any time of the year.
