Celebrities are a great source of inspiration when it comes to outfits, as each of their looks are carefully planned out and executed by their army of stylists. Even something as simple as a pair of kicks is chosen very deliberately. It clearly works because we all end up with serious footwear envy. If you’re hoping to revamp your shoe collection, you’ve come to the right place. Here are six fabulous shoe trends on our favorite celebrities.
1. Cutout sandals
We love these cutout sandals that Taylor Swift is sporting. The embellishment can easily be used to dress up an outfit. The dainty straps crisscross around the ankles, creating an elongated illusion for your legs. Pair them with a beaded mini dress like Taylor for a glamorous night out.
2. Strappy heels
Strappy heels are elegant, timeless, and versatile. From DSW to Saint Laurent, there are plenty of options to choose from. Our advice is to stick with a neutral color like nude, white, or black so you can wear them with almost anything in your closet. Blake Lively went with a subtle beige pair to give her gorgeous lace frock the chance to shine.
3. Python-print booties
Kim Kardashian is not one to shy away from making a bold statement. We love how she paired her casual lingerie-inspired attire with these snake-print ankle boots to create a dramatic look. Wear this style with a little black dress for the evening. If you’re feeling adventurous, follow Kim’s lead and pair them with light-washed jeans and a body-hugging crop top.
4. Thigh-high boots
Rihanna wore these latex-effect thigh-high boots to launch the second season of her Fenty x Puma collection at Bergdorf Goodman in conjunction with fashion week. It’s a pleasant surprise to see how she paired them down with athleisure-inspired clothing for daytime. We love the award-winning singer’s chic and sporty vibe.
5. Chunky heel
Out with the stilettos and in with the chunky heel. We are obsessed with this style, as it provides elevation without the impracticality often associated with stilettos. Emma Roberts rocks her black Mary Jane-inspired chunky heels with a cutout ruffled dress and cool shades. How chic.
6. Clear shoes
The clear shoe trend has taken the fashion world by storm this year. Ranging from semi to completely clear, it seems these heels and boots are the ones to wear. Kylie Jenner styles hers with a blush, tasseled Balmain mini dress complete with shoulder cutouts.
7. Slip-on shoes
Believe it or not, sometimes even celebrities choose to wear flats. Olivia Palermo makes a wise decision to opt for these edgy, mismatched slip-ons to complete her black and white ensemble while running around town during Fashion Week. Trés chic.
