This Is the One Meghan Markle-Approved Heel to Splurge On
The duchess's latest look had us clamoring to add her Aquazzura mules to our online carts.
Name a celebrity whose closet you long to raid and we’re willing to bet that if the answer isn’t Kate Middleton, it’s Meghan Markle. The pregnant Duchess of Sussex (who’s expecting a royal bundle of joy this April with husband Prince Harry) has a proven track record of enviable outfits, including a collection of ultra-chic trench coats and a comfortable shoe collection that’s posh enough to convince us to toss all of our existing kicks. As much as we can’t get enough of Markle’s everyday outfits and gala-ready gowns, the duchess’s latest look had us clamoring to add her shoes to our online carts.
Meghan and Harry attended the Endeavor Fund Awards in London on Thursday, and the Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a pair of black and gold mules that can best be described as the ultimate Carrie Bradshaw shoe. Crafted from black suede and gold leather, the Aquazzura ‘Rendez Vouz’ mule ($750; net-a-porter.com) stood out for its metallic straps and sleek pointed toe. The royal mom-to-be wore the chic mules with a bespoke collared top and black skirt by Clare Weight Keller for Givenchy (the same fashion house behind her silk wedding dress). She finished the look with a classic black Givenchy clutch.
The price of Markle’s mules isn’t one to balk at (we told you they basically come Carrie Bradshaw-approved), but the sheer versatility of the shoe is enough to make us consider treating ourselves to a new pair of heels. The thick band of gold leather provides an element of low-key glam, and the convenience of a slip-on heel makes it appealing for both professional settings and nights out on the town.
