Rochelle Humes Swapped Flats for This Chic But Impractical Shoe Trend at Wimbledon

Amongst world-class sport and pints of Pimm's, Britain's annual Wimbledon tennis tournament is also renowned for the incredibly well-dressed crowd that it attracts. Although there is no official dress code for guests, those attending tend to stick to "smart casual" attire that often incorporates the season's favourite trends.

Spotted at yesterday's Championship tournament, Rochelle Humes debuted an elegant ensemble that was right at home in the celebrity-packed centre court. Wearing a sophisticated dress that masqueraded as a two-piece, Humes reached for a structured design from London brand Self-Portrait. Swerving the flat shoe trends such as mary janes and ballet flats that the style set typically reach for throughout Wimbledon, the singer and television personality instead selected a shoe trend that's been sweeping the shop fronts this summer.

Whilst Humes wore summer-ready flip flops, she left her flat pair at home, instead selecting a heeled version for her day out. As any Wimbledon goer will tell you, a trip to the event guarantees a high foot count and a portion of wading through grassy fields—making a flat-footed flip flop a far more obvious choice. But, by choosing a sleek heeled style, the her shoes added a nostalgic '90s mood to her look that felt perfectly chic for the occasion.

Ensuring her outfit met her famously polished aesthetic, Humes chose a pretty black and white dress in a mid-length design that featured structured shoulders and a neat belt fastening.
