booting up


According to Harper's Bazaar, "The unassailable rule of thumb is once there are three, call it a trend." With this edict in mind, I'd like to call out the high boot trend materializing on New York's Fall/Winter 2014 runways. Dominating the catwalks at Tibi (above), Altuzarra (below), Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, and Rag & Bone, just to name a few (er, more than three!), boots are reaching new heights--mostly to the knee cap and above. Because the ankle boot has reigned for several years now, this higher silhouette looks fresh and different and yet is proving to be just as versatile, shown with everything from mini skirts to evening dresses. Already, show attendees are taking note and sporting leg-climbing boots outside the tents (see below). With all the winter clearance sales happening, I'm thinking this is an opportune time to look into taller, next-year-ready varieties. So far, I've found these beauties from Isabel Marant (40% 0ff), Sam Edelman (40% off), Cole Haan (60% off), Pour La Victoire, and Mia (30% off).

OOPS, never really quit wearing mine from a few years ago. So I am ahead of the trend, hopelessly outdated or just sticking with what works. :-)

Me either but I'm going mad trying to find a boot in the shape of the Cole Haan but that goes over the knee, maybe even can cuff over. I'd love to know if you find one in your travels!
