No doubt there are as many eyes on the sidewalks during fashion month as there are on the runways. And one of the biggest draws for street-style photographers? Shoes. From New York to London, the style elite have been flaunting fall’s must-have boots: over-the-knee stunners, dressed-up moto styles, and cutout booties. Here’s how to work them into your wardrobe.
From sporty caged styles to color-blocked pointed toes, there is a cutout for every mood. Opt for a strappy, colorful stiletto to complement a menswear-inspired trouser or amp up a simple shift dress with chunky-heeled, open-toe bootie.
One of the sexier boot silhouettes, OTK also serves a dual purpose as one of the warmest. Suede, heeled, or flat – the extended height is ideal for experimenting with a short hemline and textured tights. Go for a sultry look with a lace-up version (just don’t be surprised if the cameras follow).
You already know the power of a low-key moto boot, but the latest iterations are anything but simple. With studded bone-white leather and mixed chain detailing, designers are reinventing this perennial off-duty-model favorite. Let this trend do the
talking stomping and keep the rest of your outfit classic – think boyfriend jeans and a chunky sweater.
Shop these and more sidewalk boot trends in our Street-Style Star: Rebecca Minkoff Boots & More Boutique, which opened Thursday, September 18, at 11AM ET.
