Lily James stepped out to promote her new West End production, Romeo and Juliet, in London on Friday. The Cinderella star was seen outside the BBC Broadcasting House looking rather prim and proper in a black button-up long-sleeved shirt teamed with a white midi skirt.
I’m guessing she wanted to downplay the overly conservative getup so she decided to team the combo with chunky studded platform sandals instead of the usual pumps. Lily’s skirt also came with a thigh-high slit on the front, so there was a good amount of leg on display. Check out her outfit, and then tell me if you approve:

Well, do you like the outfit she put together, or do you think she could have done better?
I think she should have worn something a little more flattering, but the outfit is alright. It’s Western inspired and will probably remind you of the retro-80s, but at least she doesn’t look bad. Would you agree?
I couldn’t find any details on Lily’s outfit, but what I can tell you is that her chunky heels are from Burberry. They’re the “Rhys”, a style detailed with large dome-shaped studs on the t-strap vamps and ankle straps, inch-thick wooden platforms, and 5-inch-tall wooden heels. I couldn’t find them in black, but here they are in brown:

If you wish to steal Lily’s style, wear the sandals with a button-up collared shirt and a midi skirt. If you can’t bring yourself to spend almost $800 on a pair of shoes, try the Report Meeshka instead:
