French First Lady Brigitte Macron Votes in Skinny Jeans & This Trending Boot Style

Brigitte Macron made a case for effortlessly chic casual dressing today as she voted in the French municipal elections in Paris.

France’s first lady, 66, looked stylish in a sky blue coat worn over a black turtleneck and skinny jeans.

France is holding nationwide elections to choose all of its mayors and other local leaders despite a crackdown on public gatherings because of the new Covid-19 coronavirus. Several European countries have closed borders, schools as well as public facilities, and have cancelled most major sports and entertainment events in order to prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus causing the Covid-19 disease.Municipal elections in France amid Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, Le Touquet - 15 Mar 2020

For footwear, Macron selected black boots with an almond toe, a lug sole and a leather-like upper. The shoes had a bit of a rock ‘n’ roll twist courtesy of stud detailing at the ankle.

The shoe choice was a fitting one, as heavy lugs are trending for fall. The clompy, slightly apocalyptic look has become popular thanks in large part to Prada, as its fall ’19 combat boots with attached ankle pouches were a street style favorite among fashionistas and A-listers alike.

When it comes to her personal shoe style, Macron can often be found in high heels, with the Louis Vuitton Eyeline — a classic, pointed-toe pump with a stiletto heel — as a particular favorite. The former teacher has also been spotted in more trend-forward styles, such as all-over monogrammed Louis Vuitton pumps with block heels and PVC-accented pumps in lipstick red.
