Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon — or, rather Elle Woods — is the person who taught me I could love pink, put kindness first, and simultaneously be a boss babe. So, it goes without saying that I draw tons of fashion inspo from the actress, including her recent spring-approved ensemble.

Spotted in New York City, Witherspoon wore a belted shirtdress from Lafayette under a $2,998 tan lapel coat from the same brand, while gold jewelry and large glasses (Harvard Law, anyone?) added the perfect finishing touches. Though, my attention was totally on her low-key sexy shoes.

Sam Edelman Bianka Slingback Pump



Steve Madden Syrie Kitten Heel Slingback Pointed-Toe Pump



Witherspoon’s oxblood-colored slingback pumps featured a pointed toe, slim back strap, and kitten heel. The actress isn’t alone in her love of slingbacks, with nearly everyone reaching for the style this spring, including Katie Holmes, Julia Roberts, Kylie Jenner, and even fashion editors. In fact, one InStyle editor even called the practical shoe “comfier than sneakers” — and I’d have to agree; due to the straps, they securely stay on your foot, while the low kitten heel makes it possible to wear them for extended periods of time (yes, please!).

Slingback pumps are easily spring 2024’s hottest shoe, and that definitely has to do with how versatile they are. Wear the style with a chic dress like Witherspoon, wide-leg trousers, T-shirt, or denim skirt. They even look great with shorts, adding a whole new layer to your spring and summer wardrobe. Because you can dress slingbacks up or down, confidently step out in your new shoes to brunch, a botanical garden, museum, or date night.

So many different options are available, too, letting you capture your own individual style. For something streamlined and classic, consider the Sam Edelman Bianka Slingback Pump, with an adjustable strap, pointed toe, curved heel, and 12 color options. If you want to separate yourself from the pack, then the Steve Madden Syrie pump is ideal; it consists of a scrunched vamp, flared heel, and three colorways, including a striking cherry red that says you’re not afraid to stand out.
