Overlooked in the winter of 2018, when they were sidelined by derbies and sneakers and other creations that barely rose much above the ankle, boots made a much-noted return to runways in the 2019 autumn-winter fashion shows last February.
The vogue for more substantial footwear has already won over a gallery of renowned models, who are more than eager to take this latest trend in their stride. This year, boots are often worn with long or midi-skirts, trousers or — more rarely — with short skirts, as illustrated by Josephine Skriver, Chiara Ferragni and Karlie Kloss.
Ultra-chic like Karlie Kloss
American catwalk star Karlie Kloss wears boots in much the same way that they were presented on the runways by major fashion houses, that is to say with longish dresses that do not show even a centimeter of skin. It is a chic and urban style, which is accentuated here by a black total look that adds to the refinement of her outfit.
Daring like Chiara Ferragni
The Italian influencer and businesswoman goes her own way on the current trend by combining high-heeled boots with a mini-skirt. The dazzlingly black material of her retro-styled, pointy-toed boots is perfectly matched by a scintillating mini-skirt decorated with a pink stripe. The entire outfit has been sourced from Ferragni’s own clothing collection.
For business like Kylie Jenner
Contrary to all expectations, reality TV star turned businesswoman Kylie Jenner did not team these knee-high boots with one of her signature form-jugging dresses. Onboard a private jet with Kris Jenner, the young woman adopted a business look composed of simple black trousers and square-toed boots, which are combined with a long black leather jacket. An outfit that is certainly in step with the competition.
Boho-chic like Olivia Palermo
Resplendent in the style that best characterizes her, the influencer and entrepreneur opted for a pleated skirt, a black top and a matching jacket worn simply over the shoulders, accessorized with a barely visible pair of high-heeled boots. A perfect winter look that the major fashion houses have already spotlighted on the runways.
Sexy in thigh boots like Josephine Skriver
Boots are making a comeback, but are thigh boots still news? Just as they were last winter, they remain the perfect accessory for short dresses and trousers. Top model Josephine Skriver has opted for these discreetly dazzling, high-heeled, brown thigh boots, which she wears with a trench coat to create a classic, ultra-sexy look. RGA
