Dua Lipa Is ‘Future Nostalgic’ Chic in a Graphic-Printed Dress and Black Lace-Up Heeled Sandals

Dua Lipa looks edgy and chic in her latest Instagram post.

The “Future Nostalgia” singer posted a photoset of her in a fashion-forward Knwls dress that featured an edgy peek-a-boo design and a graphic print. She accented this outfit with an orange clutch (also from Knwls), silver rings and a pearl and silver matching necklace and bracelet set.

As it pertains to footwear, Lipa wore a striking pair of black lace-up heeled sandals with a heel that totals at least 2 inches of height. They feature a square-toe shape that’s on-trend and have grown in prominence over the last year thanks to brands like Bottega Veneta and Gia Borghini popularizing the shoe silhouette.

Lipa is known for being, well, future nostalgic. She tends to adorn herself in styles that harken back to simpler times in fashion while also adding a mix of the modern chaos of today’s fashion industry. Wearing silhouettes like edgy dresses, oversized loungewear, intricate suiting, eye-catching graphic separates and snuggly cardigans. On the footwear front, she tends to dabble in silhouettes like heeled sandals, pumps and boots from brands like Attico and Vivienne Westwood. And when she’s not in a heel, she’s in a sleek or chunky sneaker from brands like Puma and Adidas.

Having modeled for historic and principal luxury fashion houses like Versace and Yves Saint Laurent, she proves that she can pose with the best of them. She has also participated in ad campaigns for sportswear brands like Adidas and Puma, hence her fascination with wearing the two brands’ athletic sneakers.
