Mindy Kaling serves up Y2K glamor with floral top and slick sandals – Footwear News

Mindy Kaling took social media back to the early 2000s with her latest dynamic outfit.

While posing in a new Instagram post, the “Never Have I Ever” creator wore a glamorous Area ensemble. Her whimsical outfit, fully embodying 2000-era fashion, featured a pair of high-waisted light blue jeans with a curved back cutout in the shape of a whale’s tail. The bold denim was paired with a dramatic top – also by Area – which featured vibrant pink silk designed in the shape of a massive blooming flower, with crystals creating its center. For added glam, the piece was completed with halter and crystal back straps, the lower part of which featured sparkling “Area” letter charms.

“I’m too old for this outfit, I hope you’ll tell me I’m not?!?!” Kaling captioned her post, which was acclaimed by stars including Niecy Nash, Rebecca Rittenhouse and Squigs founder Nikita Charuza.

As for shoes, Kaling completed her ensemble with a pair of plain heeled sandals. Her ensemble, mostly hidden under the long hems of her jeans, appeared to feature pale beige patent leather uppers in an open-toe silhouette with thin soles. Although the pair’s heels were not visible, they likely encompassed a traditional stiletto shape, totaling 3-4 inches in height. The pair Kaling wore only served to emphasize the bold textures and sparkle of her outfit, creating a neutral base to do so.

Kaling herself is no stranger to bold footwear, often sporting sleek styles. In fact, while announcing “Velma” at New York Comic Con earlier this fall, she donned an orange and purple ombre sweater, shorts and blazer by Oscar de la Renta with lavender satin pumps in New York City.

The ‘Mindy Project’ designer is never shy about a bold look, often wearing ensembles in bright colors, glamorous textures and cheerful prints from brands such as Oscar de la Renta, Retrofete and Tory Burch. Kaling’s upbeat wardrobe also includes a range of colorful sandals and pumps from designers including Stuart Weitzman, Christian Louboutin and Sophia Webster. When not on duty, she can also be spotted in Hoka One One sneakers, Adidas slides and Kate Spade low heel sandals.
