Ayesha Curry took a trip with her hubby in a polarizing shoe trend.
Steph and Ayesha Curry were seen leaving Club 55 in Saint Tropez today in summery ensembles. The couple were celebrating 11 years of marriage in the French coastal town.
With the oceanscape in mind, Curry donned a blue, white and green tie-dye maxi dress with spaghetti straps. The dress featured two cutouts on either side of the long piece just below the bodice, which added a bit of edge to the breezy ensemble.
The skirt of the dress was long and flowing, layered with a second piece of fabric to add volume and keep Curry covered when the wind blew. The mother-of-three accessorized minimally with a turquoise necklace and pearl bracelet, evoking summer vibes thanks to the vibrant and eye-catching color combinations.
Curry took a risk with her shoes, slipping into controversial “ugly sandals” in black with peep-toe detailing. The shoe style is widely contested for looking bloated and almost clunky, making many outfits look lazy or thrown together in the process.
“Ugly sandals” are characterized by wide straps and thick construction, often prioritizing comfort and foot support over popular trends that don’t emphasize practicality. Contrary to their name, “ugly sandals” are actually an oddly stylish choice of modern footwear, worn by celebrities and fashion influencers. Rated “ugly sandals” include the ever-popular Birkenstocks. While they can be tricky to style, “ugly slides” like these are easy for those of us looking for something to slip on while running errands or spending a day at the beach.
Slip into these comfy slides for your next vacation.
