While browsing The New York Times online over almond croissants and O.J. here in gay Paris, I spotted the lovable Bill Cunningham’s video story about, you guessed it, over-the-knee boots being all the rage in Paris. This seemed so fitting since I just wrote about the topic yesterday in my blog post from Paris Pretty Woman: From Paris to Portugal.
There are some extreme examples, and of course the women milling around Paris Fashion Week provide ample examples of more ways to make the look work for you. There are even boot pants. Yes, boot pants — boots so high up your thigh they indeed are your pants. Fascinating.
See the video here.
