Take it from Vogue: “Boots are stepping into their very own spotlight this season. Gone are the days that they were… simply a blank canvas for our winter wardrobe.” So, take the cue and buy a pair of tall, exotic, over-the-knee python boots. P.S. – Thigh-high cowboy boots are also a thing this season, so these boots fit right in with their snip toes and western heels.
This season’s fashion forward bootie wearers will go above and beyond — the ankle, that is — to the mid-calf. From motorcycle-inspired styles like the Peyton, to exotics like the Zita or the western chic Chloe, do yourself a favor and raise your booties to the next level (literally).
As seen on the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 runways of Calvin Klein, Mara Hoffman, and Isabel Marant, the classic cowboy boot is being reintroduced, reinvented and redesigned this season. Yes, you need a pair. Yes, you can wear them year round. Yes, you must try the Beatrice. New to Lucchese for Fall 2017, it’s a beautiful combination of calf and exotic leathers in a simplistic western silhouette.
Paint Wash Finish
Every season has a new color. This season, try paint wash. Inspired by the whitewashed fences that trace backcountry roads, Lucchese’s new finish makes vintage new again. The Wynonna has that classic cowboy silhouette (and comes in four paint wash colors) while Wyly is perfect if you’re a mid-calf kind of gal who likes a little color.
If you don’t have a pair from last year (or the year before), it’s not too late to invest. Equestrian boots seem to never go out of style, whether you know how to handle a horse or not, and anyone can wear them. This season, look for rich colors, luxurious finishes, or unique details. The Riley comes in six colors, it’s style inspired by Lucchese’s original 1883 (yes, as in the year 1883) calvary boots.
