Leave it to Victoria Beckham to master the year’s most controversial shoe trend in the chicest way possible — in Paris, no less!
The former Spice Girl stepped out while in the City of Light on Wednesday, wearing a sharp wool coat. Her black style included a knee-length hem, complete with wide sleeves, pockets and pointed lapels. Beckham simply accessorized with oversized black sunglasses, as well as a black leather version of her own popular Chain pouch — a $1,390 clutch in a large rectangular flap-style silhouette, complete with a gold watchband-style chain handle.
Beckham’s pants actually served as the base for her garden-worthy ensemble. For footwear, the “Spice Up Your Life” singer’s leggings were finished with a set of pointed-toe pumps with thin 4-inch stiletto heels. The style effortlessly finished Beckham’s ensemble in a sharp, streamlined manner.
The pointed-toe pair merged the silhouette of pumps with leggings, forming the latest iteration of “pantaboots” — one of the year’s most popular shoe trends, marrying the shapes of pointed heels with leggings, tights or trousers to create streamlined bottoms. Similar styles have also been released from numerous brands over the last year and a half; Balenciaga and Richard Quinn have been key players in the trend, in addition to Saint Laurent, Diesel and Jeffrey Campbell.
Beckham has made pointed-toe footwear her staple over the years, wearing numerous pairs of sharp boots, mules and pumps by her own namesake label. When it comes to heels, she’s often worn styles by Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, Casadei and Nicholar Kirkwood. Ankle boots by Alaïa and sandals by Bottega Veneta are also some of her go-to styles. When off-duty, the Victoria Beckham Beauty founder also has a penchant for Adidas sneakers — plus shoes from her own athletic collaborations with Reebok.
