Kate Upton always dresses to impress.
The supermodel-turned-actress has a classic style and knows exactly what to wear to flatter her figure. This month, the star decided to take a risk and go in a new direction with her look. She took on the architectural shoe trend that’s been popping up everywhere this season, thanks to celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Priyanka Chopra.
While out and about walking her dog in New York City, Upton was spotted in a gorgeous black-and-white printed Zimmermann dress — you can find a similar one for $495 — and a matching pair of structured Mercedes Castillo mules. The shoes elevated her already incredible outfit and gave it the extra edge it needed. Next time you want to amp up a casual summer dress, give the trend a try. We recommend you start out with Upton’s pick and copy her look ASAP, as the shoes are available for purchase today online for $350.
Perfect for summer, it seems the footwear style was versatile enough for her day-long schedule.
Upton changed two more times and opted for Giuseppe Zanotti mules ($278) teamed with a Michael Kors strapless number, and later that night she teamed the shoes with a black one-shoulder dress by Balmain when she stepped out alongside her fiancé, sports star Justin Verlander, for an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Bravo late-night chat show “Watch What Happens Live.”
