To all the style mongers out there who share my obsession with boots, this is definitely our season! Boots have always been my favourite kind of shoe, so I am ecstatic that that they are all over the runways and glossy pages of fall magazines. First, we have the "bootie"- my 2 favourites being Prada's sleek bond girl design, and Moschino's exquisite confection. Booties aren't always as dramatic as higher boots, but they are great with jeans, and can be stunning with skirts á la Carrie Bradshaw in Paris (you have to be quite slim to pull this look off though!)
From there we move to the utterly fabulous knee high boots. Where do I start? These can make a fashion addict's heart skip a beat. I love how you can wear them at full height for knock 'em dead glamour, or get a slouchy pair for the more casual, boho chic look. Black and brown leather tend to be the classic favourites that will last through a couple seasons, however there are many colours to choose from, as well as details such as grommets, embroidery and fur trim. These are a few of my favourite looks...
