Julia Roberts’ ‘InStyle’ Awards Outfit Included The Best Menswear-Inspired Oxfords
Menswear hit the runways in full force during fashion month, and from the looks of it, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Whether it comes in the form of tailored trousers or structured button-downs, the unique style adds an ultra-polished component to any outfit. Julia Roberts' white oxfords demonstrate one of the easiest ways to incorporate the trend into you every day look.
Roberts and celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart epitomized best friend goals when they walked the red carpet at the InStyle Awards on Oct. 22 in matching ensembles. The duo coordinated every part of their look, even down to their eyeglasses.
Roberts and Stewart, who were both honorees at the awards show, wore identical lavender suits by Givenchy, paired with pink button-down tops and multi-colored chain bags. While the pastel suits were definitely the main attraction, their exceedingly stylish shoe choice shouldn't go unnoticed. The pair completed their menswear-inspired ensembles with white platform oxfords by Clergerie. The simple shoe made for the perfect finishing touch with small, intricate details like neutral stitching, white laces, and a textured sole.
"It's not often we get to go to something together," Roberts told InStyle of the thought behind the look. "And I said, you know, because we do look alike, I said, 'What if we wore, like, a similar outfit? Let's wear the same thing.'"
Stewart has been styling Roberts for quite some time, on magazine covers, red carpets, and more. However, Roberts isn't Stewart's only famous client. She frequently works with other big names in Hollywood like Cate Blanchett, Amanda Seyfried, and Viola Davis.
With experience like that under her belt, it's hard not to trust that she has a clear grasp on the latest and greatest trends — including this comfortable take on formal footwear. And considering we've officially reached cold-weather season, now is a smart time to swap your favorite sandals and mules for a more weather-appropriate style.
Ahead, shop Roberts and Stewart's exact pair of shoes, as well as The Zoe Report's hand-picked selection of the most stylish, platform oxfords on the market.
