Charlize Theron Just Made Flats Look So Dang Fancy on the Red Carpet

I'm certainly not an Oscar-winning actress, but I do have one thing in common with Charlize Theron: We're both 5'10". As a fellow tall gal, I know the struggle of making flats look polished enough for a night out. People seem to equate heels with dressy occasions, but they are far from the only options you have. To wit, Theron's newest appearance in New York City.

Attending the opening of Breitling's new store in the Meatpacking District, Theron wore an oversize blazer, pearl-embellished top, and silky maxi skirt. Other than her sparkling Breitling watch, her strappy flats immediately caught my attention. With this look, Theron just proved once and for all that flats can indeed look fancy. If they're good enough for the red carpet, they're good enough for me! Scroll down to re-create Charlize Theron's newest outfit.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
