Off-White shoes are true to size; unlike some other brands, you won't have to worry about sizing up or down. They're also quite comfy. Most are lightweight, however many other types of shoes are hefty and difficult to walk in for extended periods of time.
Black is a very versatile color that fits into most styles of clothing. Whether you choose a solid black dress or a printed black top, black will look good with almost anything else in your wardrobe. Black goes with almost any skin tone, too. If you have dark skin, a black dress will make you look slimmer than if you were a lighter-skinned woman wearing the same dress.
White is classic and elegant. It makes any outfit it's paired with appear more fashionable and high-end. White goes with just about everything — except red. If you wear white with red, it can make you look sickly, so stick to pairing it with other colors.
Grey is sophisticated without being dull. It's a perfect color to add some interest to an otherwise boring outfit. Grey goes with just about everything, which is why it's such a popular choice for daily outfits.
Blue is classic and flattering to all shapes and sizes. It makes any body type look better because it can be worn with almost any weight distribution.
Why it works: "Simple white trainers are the ideal casual Friday shoes—smarter, but comfy and unobtrusive." Furthermore, black jeans seem a little sharper than blue jeans, and the black socks maintain the outfit clean and basic.
The classic white trainer has been improved with the addition of cushioned soles and colorful designs. Today, you can find white trainers in a range of styles including slip-ons, lace-ups, and slides. Some companies also sell colored plastic straps that you can buy to replace the black ones that come installed on the shoe.
Casual Friday is that day at the end of the workweek when you wear something more comfortable than your business attire. It's the day you feel free to relax a bit by wearing sneakers instead of your office shoes. In fact, according to popular culture, many people start the weekend by changing out of their smart clothes into something more fun or casual.
In terms of fashion, white trainers are the perfect choice for this type of look. They're easy to wear with most any other piece of clothing and will never get too old-fashioned or trendy. Since they're such an affordable option, you won't have to worry about being able to afford new shoes each time a trend comes around.
Of course, not all whites are created equal.
Off-White creates lots of high-fashion clothing, but it's more known for stuff like $1,000 hoodies, costly, tongue-in-cheek phone covers, buzzy partnerships that help drive the $1 billion sneaker resale business, and its characteristic, seemingly nonfunctional industrial-themed belts. The brand has also been known to release limited edition items with prices such as $100,000 and $200,000.
Why do people love it? It's not just a fad brand - the company has over 100 employees in Los Angeles, and many of them have worked at other big names in fashion like Nike and Adidas. It also doesn't hurt that the founder is Kanye West: one of the most influential musicians in the world who knows how to create hype around products.
How much does it cost? While you can find some items under $10,000, most of their clothes are priced above $500. Famous fans include Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Rihanna who all wear Off-White merchandise in their videos.
Where can I get it? You can find almost everything from jackets to shoes to phone cases online or in retail stores like Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Dress and black shoes A white gown and black shoes? Well, regardless of how brilliant or off-white it is, it will always look fantastic with a black shoe and is one of my favorite white dress shoe color pairs. It keeps things simple and classy, and both the shoes and the dress can shine without competing for attention.
The key to making this look work is that the shoes must be black and the dress should be white or very close to it in tone. A red or blue dress with black shoes would look strange because neither the dress nor the shoes have enough contrast with each other. Also, make sure there's no yellow or orange present in either the dress or the shoes; these colors will clash.
Wearing white with black is an elegant way to end a night out or start a day. It's classic and timeless, so it works for any occasion. White dresses are easy to clean too, which is great if you're planning to wear it again later in the week.
