What happens when you drop a West Coast athleisure aficionado onto the trendy streets of Manhattan? She swaps her sneakers out for a pair of leather flats and slips into a mini skirt, apparently. Jennifer Garner's studded Oxfords added a New York City touch to her latest black-and-white ensemble.

On any given day, you can find this mom of three walking through her Brentwood neighborhood with a coffee cup in hand and, oftentimes, a colorful kid's backpack slung over her shoulders. It's safe to say Garner has truly embraced her seemingly endless collection of leggings, sweatshirts, vests, and running shoes.

In one video she shared on Instagram in July, she even kissed her beloved pair of sweatpants and hashtagged #sweatpantsmatter in the caption. So, when she hit the city in something other than a pair of cotton bottoms on Weds., it was cause for celebration.

Garner was spotted wearing a white tee with cinched sleeves tucked into a black A-line mini skirt while chatting and taking selfies with a fan on the sidewalk. The hero piece of her outfit, however, was a pair of black, studded Oxfords.

The daring and slightly underrated footwear in question is actually a mainstay in the actor's East Coast wardrobe.

Anytime she wears an outfit that doesn't consist entirely of gym clothes — which mostly happens when she's traveling to NYC — she often reaches for a pair of sleek, sophisticated loafers. She owns a blue suede version by The Row, ones sprinkled with glitter by Brunello Cucinelli, and a caramel croc-embossed pair by Tod's. Needless to say, the leather slip-ons are her go-to.

The Oxfords she sported most recently are lined with edgy silver studs. They made for the perfect fashion statement, paired with that A-line skirt, and had to be way more comfortable than a pair of heels as she navigated the city on foot.

Recreate her outfit with these Jennifer Garner-inspired Oxfords, ahead.
