Whether you're browsing your favorite department store, sifting through an online boutique, or scrolling your social media feed, animal print has secured its place as a major trend for fall and winter. Although following the lead of celebrity style often comes with a ultra-high price tag, affordable ways to achieve your desired look exist. Bella Hadid's snakeskin boots, which will only set you back $130, prove that A-list fashion doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg.
Hadid documented her short visit to Kuala Lumpur via Instagram on Mon. The model, who traveled to Malaysia for an event hosted by Tag Heuer, posed in front of a stunning building looking equally as immaculate. She wore a matching suit set, featuring a gray-silk mini skirt, a sparkly crop top, and a matching oversized blazer. While she's become well known for her love of vintage-inspired suit sets, her bold footwear choice stole the show this time around.
Hadid opted for a pair of knee-high snakeskin boots with a block heel by Mango. The edgy pair may look elaborate, but they actually retail for just $130. The model completed the otherwise uncomplicated outfit by wearing her mid-length hair in a retro half-up style, keeping it sleek and to the point.
The 22-year-old has dabbled in the world of snakeskin before, donning a much more expensive pair by Celine earlier this month. She was photographed heading into a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show fitting wearing the pricier pair with a sweater dress, a chain-link belt by Chanel, and a black shoulder bag.
Hadid is all too familiar with top-of-the-line designers, partly due to the fact that she's constantly collaborating with them on the runway, gracing the covers of major magazines, and starring in fashion campaigns. However, there's something comforting about the fact that even one of the highest-paid models in the industry can't help herself from a quality pair of shoes with an impressively low price tag. If Hadid's wearing them, you probably should, too.
Not only can these boots add an element of excitement to a monochrome look, they're also the perfect companion to spice up an outfit you've worn a million times over. Pair them with your trusted skinny denim, a cozy turtleneck, and a wool trench for an easy upgrade from your black booties. If you're in the mood to take a style risk, try mixing prints by teaming the boots with a checkered mini skirt or a leopard-print dress.
The downside to a Hadid sister scoring an affordable piece? The sell-out rate is incredibly fast. Ahead, shop Bella's knee-highs before it's too late, along with The Zoe Report's selection of snakeskin boots to add to your ever-expanding shoe closet.
