The hot new boot this season is actually a shoe. Everyone from Vogue to Topshop are featuring shoe boots as the new boots for fall. Think round toe, black boots, circa late 19th century, made of satin, with thick and/or lacey shoe laces. You won’t see me rocking a pair—they make chunky legs look chunkier—but I do think that budget fashionistas who are a bit trendier or socialite in their style would be able to carry off the look without a hitch.

How You’ll Wear Them:

- With a tailored, 1940’s style suit and pair of black (or gray) leggings

- to add a bit of femininity to a pair of tailored menswear pants

- with a ultra mini and pair of bright colored tights
