Reese Witherspoon Dares to Match a Classic Black Dress to These ‘Cheugy’ 2000s Boots
Reese Witherspoon is bringing back a disputed boot from the early 2000s for her newest movie.
Filming “Your Place or Mine” on Wednesday, the actress joined her co-star Jesse Williams on set in New York for the Netflix romantic comedy. Witherspoon herself got into character in a classic black dress that featured a scooped neckline and a belt-cinched waist.
When it came down to footwear, the “Sweet Home Alabama” star brought back both shearling-lined boots and wedge heels from the early aughts.
The term “cheugy” resurfaced across the Internet this summer due mostly in part to trends and new videos addressing the word across TikTok. Though it draws similarities in definition to basic or cliché, cheugy is a whole new category that addresses things that are considered by the general public to be outdated, overhyped or even just straight-up extra. TikTok users like Glow Up University, who frequented the term on social media, referenced former favorites like oversize Gucci belts, Lily Pulitzer and velour tracksuits.
Witherspoon’s choice of footwear, in particular, used to be a favorite of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Kate Moss and more style stars from decades past.
Though the actress tends to incorporate styles from her own line, her mom-chic style also features top brands such as Armani, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin to name a few. Her go-to shoe, though is not a heel but a sneaker from Hoka One One. The “Little Fires Everywhere” frontwoman oftentimes steps out for walks and runs with chunky running shoes in all different shades.
