Hereeee they comeeee!!
The boots of the season, which all of the “it” girls here at fashion week are wearing (the boots is how you tell who’s an it girl). They’re a little like the fashion week holy grail – everyone wants a pair but in the rarest color. Basically everyone wants to wear the same thing but still be unique (ok, so fashion can be confusing).
This season it’s the Dior patent boot with the lucite heel.
Even in the crazy crowds outside the shows, they’re really distinctive and a little sexy (that gloss red?!!) — even in all variation of colors and length (calf height or over the knee). And, right now in Paris, they’re more common than baguette for breakfast. Just kidding.
Of course we love them, too. Secretly I would kill for a pair. In grey.
(If you have a spare, you know where to send them…)
But the Dior boot is really just an indicator of what the season has in store, boot-wise. It’s really about the block heel, with a mode sensibility — whether low or a super high heel. So we wanted to show you some of our other favorites.
First off, I admit that I have serious shoe envy of G right now. She has three of these… You might have noticed the black Stella McCartneys with the beautiful velvet brocade in yesterday’s post. Or, on Instagram, that she recently acquired the dream black patent miu mius with the super mode buckle.
Oh, and then there’s the more boots that are just as cool but on the more affordable side.These Topshop flat suede booties with lace up sides that have such a cute detail for exposing socks, if you so wish.
What do you think of the boots of fall? Which one is your favorite?
