Reese Witherspoon Made $55 Vans Sneakers Look Posh in the Rain

From a collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum to a partnership with Disney and Mickey Mouse, Vans has released plenty of cool collaborations recently if you're looking to update your tried-and-true sneakers. Sometimes, though, the cult brand's classic shoes are just what the doctor ordered, as was the case with Reese Witherspoon's new outfit.

Photographed on a rainy New York City evening, Witherspoon made Vans' perennially cool Old Skool Sneakers ($55) look chic with an all-black look. When in doubt, go monochrome—it's the easiest way to look put-together immediately. While you might be more inclined to wear Vans sneakers with jeans, a pair of trousers like Witherspoon's is more polished and a bit unexpected. Scroll down to see her look and shop the shoes.

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.
