We got a major kick out of Emma Watson’s latest look. Not only did she look adorable and sophisticated (two adjectives that rarely go hand in hand), but she effortlessly pulled off the overalls trend, making it wearable by layering her black pair (hers are by Frame Denim, $300; net-a-porter.com) over a polished button-down, cuffing the hems, and sporting some cool sneaks to seal the deal.
But then again, those sneaks could make any ensemble infinitely cooler. As an upgraded version of the slip-0n skater shoe, this pair embodies all the right active elements, including mesh-like perforation, easy-to-wear stretch panels, and thick rubber soles, all encased in rich ultra-luxe nubuck leather. The brand that’s responsible for this display of chic athleticism? The “Blair” sneaker is by contemporary label Vince, and it’s available for $195 in black and taupe at vince.com and neimanmarcus.com. Wear yours paired with skinnies (or overalls, if you’re so inclined) and with shorts when warmer weather strikes.
