For the outfit, Vergara donned a tan, black and white polka-dotted blouse that had a slightly cropped hemline with breezy draping. On the lower half, she wore a pair of cropped wide-leg jeans with a frayed hem and a high-waisted design. Vergara layered with a black longline and oversized blazer for a unifying finish.

The “Modern Family” star accessorized with a quilted Saint Laurent bag that had gold hardware along with black square-shaped sunglasses.

Black platform sandals grounded her relaxed look. The heels had a heel height of approximately 5 inches and a strappy, braided toe knot design that felt modern and sleek. They’re sold but but have retailed for around $1,050 previously.

Platform sandals feature an elevated sole and typically a high heel 4 inches or higher. The platformed construction helps compensate for the height of the heel, allowing for more height than a traditional sandal without any added discomfort. In fact, if comfort is a concern, some experts recommend that you maintain a heel high of no more than 3 inches by subtracting the height of the platform from the heel. For instance, if you’re wearing a 3.75-inch heel, your platform should be .75 inches.

When it comes to Vergara’s clothing tastes, she tends to fancy sophisticated and stylish silhouettes. For example, she recently donned a basic black short-sleeve top teamed with a multi-colored smocked midi skirt and metallic platform pumps while arriving at the set of “America’s Got Talent.”

Vergara is no stranger to the fashion industry, having campaigns with Dolce & Gabbana for the brand’s Devotion bag in 2020. She also has an apparel line with Walmart.
