A closer look at Gabrielle Union’s metallic brown sandals.

For the shoes, Union slipped on a pair of brown metallic sandals that had a slight platform sole, which added a nice touch of sleekness to the overall aesthetic of the ensemble.

Union’s essential style consists of chic, trendy clothing plays of the modernity of fashion while also harking back to vintage silhouettes. Her Instagram features photos of her in printed dresses, loose-fitting tailoring, intricate swimwear, edgy skirts, striking outerwear and efficient activewear. For her essential footwear aesthetic, Union typically wears sharp pumps, sleek boots, heeled sandals and elegant slides.

When she’s not posting pictures of her daughter Kaavia’s fashion moments or her husband dressed to the nines, Union struts down red carpets in gowns from brands like Dundas, Raisa & Vanessa, Prada and Giambattista Valli.

Union also explored fashion ventures in the past when she created a collection for New York & Company. The line incorporated a series of trendy yet classic clothing that appealed to women of all ages in the form of printed kimonos, strapless dresses, eye-catching sweaters and vibrant jumpsuits.

Slip on a pair of brown heeled platform sandals and a touch of refinement to your outfits, inspired by Gabrielle Union.
