To amp up her look, the “Ladies First” hitmaker accessorized with pink shades, oversized hoop earrings and a gold chain. She opted for minimal makeup and pulled her hair back into a bun.

Completing Latifah’s look was a pair of black wedge sandals. The shoe style featured a wide leather strap across the toe and had stud details around the ankle and on the counter and sat on a woven wedge heel. Effortless summer outfits are taken to the next level when you finish them off with wedge sandals. They are the perfect shoe choice for someone that is looking for stability and the chunkiness that a platform shoe provides with more shape.
