Over the past few months, nearly every editor at ELLE Canada bought a pair of white booties—from western style pairs to dainty kitten heels. Keep scrolling to see the exact pairs we own and love (or dream of owning).
Yes, we know this particular pair of boots is not white. But EIC Vanessa Craft's pair is! The white option is due back in stock in January (we think Vanessa rocking these boots had something to do with them selling out).
"What don't I style my white cowboy boots with? They work with everything — midi dresses, flared knife pleat skirts, jeans, wide leg trousers… White is a neutral, so you can wear it with any colour – and it brings a fresher, cool vibe." – Vanessa Craft, editor-in-chief
Aldo "Drerissa" Booties ($160)
"I have rather specific preferences when it comes to my footwear: sneakers come in white, and boots preferably black or grey. This Franken-sneaker-boot bridges that divide. Plus the distressed painted wash means I can leave the magic eraser at home." – Jed Tallo, art director
Maison Margiela High-Top Fusion Sneaker ($960)
"I'd been looking for white booties for months, but couldn't find a pair that had a low heel but still felt interesting and were in my budget. Then, I stumbled across this Topshop pair (on sale!) and there were in my cart within seconds." – Carli Whitwell, managing editor
Topshop Sculpted Heel Ankle Boots ($122.50)
"I bought them because I had my eye on white boots for a while—and the price was right with these ones! Hopefully they look good on me and I will keep them!" – Victoria DiPlacido, beauty director
Rebecca Minkoff "Kaiegan" Leather Cowboy Boots ($220)
"These boots are deceptively simple, they look way more expensive than they are and manage the nearly impossible task of matching with everything: denim, skirts, dresses. My favourite way to wear them now that it's truly winter is with a black suit—the subtle pop of white peeking out from a long trouser is so crisp. This pair is by Le Château, who have been killing it with their boots this season, by the way. I also have my eye on these."
– Liz Guber, style editor
Le Château Pointy Toe Ankle Boot ($69.96)
"I love the contrast of the white suede and white leather. It adds interest and elevates the idea of a basic white boot. I'd wear them with black leather culottes and a comfy knit sweater or a nice tailored blazer." – Elaine Jyll Regio, fashion & market editor
Rag & Bone "Beha" Boot ($580)
“The zipper and stud-embellishments on these boots take the style from basic to rocker-chic. It’s the perfect pair to elevate a classic denim and t-shirt outfit. White boots don’t look the same — it’s all in the details!” – Erica Ngao, fashion editorial assistant
Alexander Wang “Eri” Studded Leather Ankle Boots ($795 USD)
“I haven’t been able to commit to a pair of white boots yet—they’re just not my vibe (but if everyone keeps wearing them around the office, I may be converted). For the time being, I love the pink hue of these Chelsea boots. They add the perfect pop of colour.” – Patricia Karounos, editorial assistant
New Republic Chelsea Boots ($99)
