Break OUT of those winter doldrums, ladies. Follow the lead of Nicki Minaj, Alexa Chung, and Cory Kennedy and have a little fun with your shoe game. There may be a few more months of the season left, but this year’s uncharacteristically warm temperatures just keep going strong. This may mean bad news for those shearling-lined snow boots that are currently collecting dust but not for ANY of your other kicks. Get in step with this week’s lovely ladies of the Shoe Update, and peel off the socks for a while with funkier footwear.
Nicki Minaj wore these bold Giuseppe Zanotti sandals for her MAC Viva Glam event. Paired with a candy-colored ensemble and Barbie pink lips, these flirty feminine shoes were the perfect complement to her structured suiting.
Running from show to show is hard to do in monstrous heels. Alexa Chung plays it comfy for London Fashion Week in a pair of black fringed loafers. A clunky pair of menswear inspired shoes is tricky territory, but Alexa balances the silhouette with a bodycon mini to show off her gams. Also, with that brass buckle and glimmering sheen, the flats are still dressy enough to keep her look polished despite no added height.
Cory Kennedy’s entire outfit is such a winter breath of fresh air with that bold striped coat, fash-forward updo, and oversized clutch, but we’re zeroing in on the equally stunning footwear. So often fashion risks are only taken from the ankles up and shoes are used to balance the presumed craziness of the rest of the ensemble. Cory bucks this theory, pairing red-and-black with these orange and cobalt heeled loafers. They’re kind of a combination of Nicki and Alexa’s shoes, so you can embrace both ends of the spectrum at once!
