Karlie Kloss’ Red Slingback Heels Will Brighten Up Any All-Black Outfit
Moving away from your trusted black booties for a more daring choice can feel like an impossible feat, especially after you've spent all season breaking them in. Although leopard and snakeskin have spent the last few months fighting for the spot of the most popular shoe trend, a bolder, brighter option has officially arrived. When you feel like it's time to take a break from your many pairs of boots, Karlie Kloss' red slingbacks are the answer to your prayers.
Kloss was photographed as she strolled through Manhattan on Weds. in an outfit that kept her feeling warm while looking cool. The model sported a white v-neck underneath an oversized navy trench coat in a cozy teddy bear material. She paired the top and jacket with classic, ankle-grazing black trousers. The delicate pop of color that elevated the entire look from comfortable to polished came in the form of her cherry-red slingbacks by Tamara Mellon. The suede shoes feature a pointed toe, a small block heel, and a dainty strap.
Kloss carried her box-shaped bag by the structured handle, rather than wearing the crossbody strap, to finish off the look. As she's been known to wear before, Kloss styled her hair in a messy bun with a few wispy pieces left out. The overall look remained fresh and casual thanks to her glowy skin and natural makeup.
The 26-year-old newlywed is often seen donning the best kind of on-the-go outfits, which typically feature an exciting statement piece. She's worn items like edgy leather pants paired with a simple cropped sweater, and a bright-yellow silk duster worn on top of a little black dress.
As evident by her latest fashion choice, red slingbacks can act as a fitting pop of color for any otherwise straightforward look. Wear the shoe to work with a structured pantsuit, for a night out with a satin slip dress, or for a more casual occasion paired with jeans and a fluttery blouse.
The perfect way to liven up any simple outfit, you'll want to keep a pair of slingbacks on hand all winter long. Channel your inner Kloss by incorporating them into your coziest ensemble with a soft coat, sleek pants, and a plain white t-shirt.
