Emma Watson Just Wore a Pretty Mini Dress With This Revived '90s Shoe Trend

Kicking off Milan Fashion WeekEmma Watson was spotted front and centre at the Prada spring/summer 2024 runway show from Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons.

Favouring a quieter approach to event dressing, Watson styled a black mini halterneck dress for the occasion. Focusing on considered details, her LBD was elevated with a subtle fit-and-flare shape and delicate white piping around the border of the dress, adding dimension and interest to the sleek style. 

Whether styling a simple black mini, or going all out in a suit-set, Watson prioritises excellent tailoring in all of her garments. This attention to detail affords the actor to opt for simple silhouettes that suit her personal style, as the sharp tailoring elevates the feel of her outfit.

Whilst retaining a timeless quality to her look, Watson leant in to one of summer's key dress trends: piping detailing. Spotted on offer at both Celine and Dries Van Noten, as well as high street retailers such as Arket and Mango, contrast dresses have been a celebrity favourite over the past few months with the trend expected to grow as we move towards winter.

Keeping her look on theme with the Prada event, Watson styled a black Prada bag and simple black court shoes for the occasion. Having rocketed in popularity, court shoes have become a trusty favourite of the style set, shaking off their dated association and polishing the looks of those with great taste.
