Sticking to a chill vibe, the Golden Globe winner opted for minimal accessories and only added a collection of silver midi rings. Eilish let blunt-cut bangs frame her face and styled the rest of her hair straight.

When it came down to the shoes, the songwriter slipped into a pair of Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star
platform sneakers. The silhouette had a round toe with black uppers and a thick white outsole.

Popularized in the ‘90s, many platform sneakers feature an exaggerated sole on a classic sneaker silhouette. The style is often credited to being popularized by The Spice Girls, returning to fashion in the late 2010s as part of the resurgence of ‘90s trends.

For footwear, Eilish usually opts for sneakers. In fact, she is set to release another collaboration with Nike. During previous red-carpet events, the star could be seen in platform sandals and pumps from brands like Gucci. However, her go-to styles are often sneakers hailing from Converse, Nike, Burberry and Balenciaga. The star occasionally wears tall boots that coordinate with her outfits as well, usually by Moon Boot, Dr. Martens and Swear London.
