What to Wear With: Drag Queen Shoes
We bring you a fashion advice column on how to style “drag queen shoes”. What exactly are they? Not limited to just drag queens, of course, but the term is simply an umbrella that encompasses unconventionally stylish shoes that you wouldn’t typically see in everyday fashion.
The key words here are “platform” and “heels”. These characteristics are what we’re looking for in unconventional shoe trends. The variety is endless. Platform heels, platform boots, jewel/rhinestone/stud encrusted boots, statement heels, etc.
Let’s tackle one of our most popular styles today: “Darcie Bone” (pictured above).
For a grunge look: We suggest a classic ripped mom jean with a stone-washed graphic tee on top. To layer, add a distressed jean jacket to match with your bottoms, a leather jacket, or suede jacket with fringe detailing.
For a feminine touch: Pair the boots with a slip dress. Layer a tee under the dress and a longline cardigan for a more casual 90s vibe, or layer a duster coat over to dress your outfit up.
For a sporty casual vibe: Sweatpants are key. Matching sets are even better. Layer a puffer jacket over a sweatshirt or hoodie to balance top to bottom elements. Top it off with a simple fisherman beanie, why not?
Try out these outfits and feel free to add or subtract any elements! Let us know how you’ve been inspired. We’d love to hear about your ideas!
