Hailey Bieber spoke at The Wall Street Journal’s WSJ Tech Live Conference yesterday in Laguna Beach, Calif. The model, who was clad in a slouchy ensemble and sturdy footwear, shared her strategy for taking control of her business ventures, expanding on ideas surrounding her skincare line and her successful YouTube series “Who’s in My Bathroom?”

A lover of neutrals, Bieber’s outfit centered around black, offering the Fila brand ambassador a neutral slate to work off of. Prioritizing comfort, the star wore a sweater dress consisting of a risky plunging neckline and loose-fitting exaggerated sleeves that properly kept her cozy throughout the talk.

Bieber accessorized her outfit with chunky gold accessories, the sparkling additions elevating the one-toned look.

On her feet, the social media personality sported black boots with sharp pointed toes and an intense shine that transitioned into sharp stiletto heels. The heel height certainly made the model taller, while creating cohesion, the footwear further streamlining Bieber’s silhouette, thanks to the angular arch and elongated toes.

Popularized in the ‘60 go-go era, knee-high boots leave the wearer’s knee exposed, but cover the calves. Often worn with skirts, the style is a wise choice in fall and winter for protecting the leg from the elements while still allowing the wearer to show some leg.
