It’s time to make room in your closet for boots. Need some motivation? Take a cue from Zendaya, who has stocked up on durable shoes for the coming season. She loves platforms on the red carpet and favors Valentino’s glossy Tan-Gos, but when she’s not working, she prioritizes utility over style.
The star was beaming as she perused the shops in Manhattan on September 7 while donning knee-high stomper boots with a big stacked lug sole and a body-skimming LBD with a scoop neck and leg slit. She added angular sunglasses, a watch, and a tight hairdo to her understated ensemble as accessories.
She wore mid-rise jeans, a stripey shirt that was partially unbuttoned, a preppy peak-lapel jacket from Vera Wang, and mid-rise boots from Brother Vellies for another recent outing on September 5. Zendaya wore the same pair in August, this time with a lace-trim dress and an oversized sweater, demonstrating how adaptable basic black ankle boots can be.
