What could be more seductive, modern and Parisian than a handsome pair of Winter boots, worn under a long coat and a midi dress? We immediately adopt the silhouette of the moment by choosing a chameleon pair that makes legs look leggier and in which you feel comfortable: flat or with heels, discreet or with motifs, thigh high or Western… Just choose the pair of boots that “are made for walking” thank you Nancy (Sinatra)...
We like to imagine these Sézane boots in hazelnut skin, worn with a nice vaporous Winter dress and a big soft cream pullover... Special kudos for the leather loops on the side resolutely elegant.
High Gabriella boots, Sézane, €275.
The Sixties Fever
Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac could have worn them in Les Demoiselles de Rochefort. Hats off to the stylistic return of the retour 60’s with this incredible pair or Charles Jourdan boots, to be flaunted with a straight Courrèges style skirt and a long trench coat.
Danika green leather boots, Charles Jourdan, €665.
Dare the leopard motif boot. Yes, ma’am. Because it conveys panache to a sedate outfit and because the cut of this pair of CosmoParis boots is quite tame. To slip on gleefully over a high-waist pair of black jeans worn with a heavy knit cream pullover.
Vileo Pony boots with heels, CosmoParis, €299.
Parisian Far West
Star of the Isabel Marant and Armani fashion shows, the cowboy boot is back on track, one of the must-have styles of this Winter. Treat yourself to a pair with fringes, or a more sober choice, such as this & Other Stories pair for beginners who wish to shake up their style.
High Western boot in black leather, & Other Stories, 249 €.
Unmissable: violet is everywhere this season. And, good news, this colour looks fabulous on velvet leather. We enjoy it totally with this superb pair of Jonak boots, superb with white and a touch of pink or yellow (its complementary colour) as a scarf or a small bag.
Boots with bevelled heels, Jonak, €150.
White as snow
Immaculate, stylish and joyfully copied on the model by Maison Margiela, we think of our banker and go for the mini price version by Bershka. We know, it’s bad but that way we can invest (to go with it) in a nice leather skirt and a delicate shirt. So there.
Bottes à talons et tige large, Bershka, €55.99
The life-saving pair by Minelli. With its wide cut, it makes the calf looks thinner and the leg longer, giving a midi dress the additional soul of the stylish Parisienne.
Paolina boots, Minelli, €169.
So tempting, not easy to pass the stage of the thigh high boot. Just combine it with semi opaque leggings or with plumetis motif, worn with a goody-good skirt and a long Prince of Wales coat. We easily assume our new look with this pair of Parallèle burgundy easier to tone down with beige or grey pieces. The rest is a question of attitude.
KLEA Velvet Stretch Passion, Parallèle, €495.
The New Wave spirit is back with this adorable Solovière pair, to slip on when lack of pops up. With its small heel and seam in single leather seam, it’s the chic and comfortable ally to go party or wear for work. Forget white to avoid an overly dress astronaut look a little too 2014 Ambassadors evening.
Boots in silver Nappa leather, Solovière, €595.
When the absolute queen of the intergalactic bomber Eli Grita imagines a series of footwear for Bocage, we just cannot resist this red and blue pair of boots to whip out for a flirtatious evening.
