Summer in the city can be brutal; between the rising humidity and the bustling crowds of tourists, it’s not easy navigating these streets—and the right footwear choices can make all the difference. Earlier this season, Jennifer Lawrencestepped out in summer’s hottest heel; judging by the look she wore in New York City today, though, it’s clear she isn’t afraid of a sensible shoe.
Her menswear-inspired tuxedo jacket and slouchy boyfriend jeans were a cool counterpoint to the garden party–ready wedge sandals. The 24-year-old actress has always had a soft spot for bucket bags, and the Kenneth Cole one she sported today complemented the sandy hue on the straps of her shoes. Kate Middletonhas long been a champion of the wedge as an all-terrain summer shoe (they’re ideal for crossing the lawns at royal engagements without sinking into the grass, after all), and clearly Lawrence is applying that practical approach to a cool city-dwelling milieu. We hear Lawrence is in the market for a pad in Manhattan; here’s hoping her new home has enough storage space for her ever-expanding shoe collection.
