You don't necessarily have to drop a lot of cash to look like Beyoncé, where you can still channel the Queen B and still stay on budget. Beyoncé wore Public Desire's Empire Boots on her On the Run II Tour, and they're only $60. You read that right. You don't even need to break a hundred to look like the iconic star. While the artist is known for her love of Givenchy and is usually found decked out in designer pieces everywhere from the red carpet to her Instagram photos, every now and then Bey sneaks in a fast fashion piece that we could all snap up for ourselves.
Public Desire is a British brand that's based in Manchester, but ships worldwide and has been making waves in the U.S. Committed to offering fashion lovers the hottest new styles without breaking the bank, all their pieces fall underneath the $75 mark. Their selection runs the gamut from streetstyle sneakers, to strappy heels, to minimalist slides, and Beyoncé wasn't the only It-celebrity that fell for their affordable looks. Bella and Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Miley Cyrus have all been spotted wearing their designs, proving that you don't necessarily have to drop a lot of money to play with fashion. You just need to find good deals.
The boots that Beyoncé specifically wore on stage were the Empire Ankle Boots, which are a pointed ankle boot in a liquid metallic silver.
If you aren't into the silver chrome look — or already own something similar — then you still have options. The boots come in six different finishes, and you can choose between a red patent hue, a pink metallic color that will throw you right back into your Barbie days, a black metallic shade that packs a lot of attitude, a mod patent white, and a gold chrome.
The boots feature a flared block heel and a pointed toe, and varies from liquid metallic colors to mod patent leather textures. The heel height is a little over three and a half inches, and the shoes are made from a synthetic patent material. They also sit right on the ankle, so they look great with both jeans and dresses. Basically, they will elevate any outfit you throw at them.
Even more exciting, they're on sale right now, meaning the Beyoncé-approved shoes are even more affordable than originally expected. The silver metallic pair are 40 percent off, and right now are only $35. So you can channel the Grammy-winning artist at a bargain basement price and stay well within your budget. The fashion gods have smiled down on us.
Beyoncé matched her chrome pair with a denim outfit, pairing them with frayed booty shorts that sat on top of nude fishnet tights, and topped off with a cropped denim jacket bedazzled with diamonds.
Seeing how the couple has collaborated with Givenchy to create the tour costumes, matching the custom high-end pieces with accessible budget-friendly shoes was an exciting move. Beyoncé and Jay-Z tapped into Clare Waight Keller to create their show-stopping costumes, who is the artistic director for the Givenchy fashion house (and was also the designer who created Meghan Markle's wedding dress.) She created looks inspired by her Spring-Summer 2018 Haute Couture collection, reworking her silhouettes in things like patent leather. But Keller wasn't the only designer creating memorable outfits for the tour. The powerhouse couple also tapped into Mugler, Balmain, Maison Margiela, Gucci and LaQuan Smith, creating custom made couture looks for the stage.
Knowing that, you have to love that Beyoncé decided to do some high-and-low-end mixing, pairing her sparkling denim outfit with $60 boots. She's truly a fashion inspiration.
