What’s not to like about this trend? A black boot, that elongates the leg, keeps you warm, protects you from the cold winter, or rainy London weather, and a long-time friend of über-chic Vogue fashion editor Emmanuelle Alt. Even fashion journalist and blogger Géraldine Dormoy, who favours masculine clothes and a minimalist look has fallen for them.
Far are the days when the thigh-high boot evoked a hookerish Pretty Woman style. It is now a staple of fashion editors worldwide and the ultimate AW09 treat for your feet, in the books of Louis Vuitton (left), Gucci (right), Stella McCartney for a perforated faux-leather version, and Chloé‘s fantastic gold and camel boots.
Which ones will you go for? I have made up my mind already. But I personally still heart my ankle boots and knee-high equestrian look..
