Katy Perry’s Floral Sundress & Chic Low-Top Kicks Create The Outfit of the Summer

Summer is here and that means so are summer trends — and who better to turn to for a chic season ensemble than Katy Perry!

The “Firework” singer revealed a few vacation snaps on Instagram today from her trip to Venice, Italy. In the first image, Perry posed in front of the city’s famous channels in a stylish floral sundress; the puff-sleeve design came with a butter yellow base accented by a blue flower print with a mini hemline.

The finishing touches for the outfit included a woven floppy hat and white low-top leather sneakers.

Matching sneakers to dresses is a major trend for this summer as celebrities and fashion fans alike transition slowly back into more glam attire. The casualness of a sneaker finds the perfect balance between dressed-up and relaxed styling for those who aren’t quite ready to break out their heels and sandals yet.

Just last month, Perry found the perfect shoe to match her outfit of the day with a little help from her own brand.

The “Daisies” musician took to Instagram to help finalize her look in May, scrolling through a chic selection of pieces from her eponymous footwear label. To match her slick leather boilersuit, Perry tested out $59 Jimmi watermelon slides and $69 Pearl sunshine yellow sandals before locking in her choice: the Dina pumps.

The scalloped-edge heels come set atop a pointed toe with a 3.5-inch lift and microsuede uppers, all retailing for $89 on the brand’s website.

As for Perry herself, the new mom, who welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom in August 2020, is no stranger to adding a bold piece to her rotation of ensembles. In addition to wearing standout looks and stylish shoes from Balmain, Bottega Veneta and Giuseppe Zanotti, the award-winning singer also has her own line of footwear. Perry launched her namesake collection in 2016 as a joint venture with Global Brands Group Holding Ltd.

“I like my shoes to tell a story through the heel, [asking]: ‘Can it be this or can it be that?’ I’ve tried to put many a different figure or ornament on the heels just to tell a story and to hopefully start conversations via your feet wherever you’re going, whatever you’re doing,” Perry told FN of her brand in 2018.
