Remember when we all went crazy for striped trousers last year, basically after we saw Olivia Palermo in her Zara trousers? Well stripes are officially back again this season, except this time, they will be on your boots, all thanks to Moschino, Valentino et al.
We first spotted the trend at Milan Fashion Week, where many a Fashion editor wore the multicoloured Valentino Garavani boots. Although they’re a statement piece, they proved wonderfully versatile.
Some wore them over jeans (yep, that trend’s coming back too), and others with floaty floral dresses for a more 70s feel.
The Resort shows were quick to embrace them too, with Moschino sending models down the catwalk in sporty platform boots with stripes and the Moschino logo stamped on them.
Meanwhile, while Kenzo didn’t exactly have striped boots, they made the socks with sandals combo cool by pairing normcore shoes with thigh high striped socks.
The wonderful thing about this trend is that there are stripes to suit everyone. You could go down the sporty route and go for knee-highs with simple stripes down the side, paired with an oversized sweatshirt or distressed denim – basically an outfit Gigi or Bella Hadid would wear.
If you’re after more of a 70s vibe, try the Valentino look, with horizontal striped boots in soft leather, paired with corduroys or a floaty dress.
Either way, you’ll be a winner if you embrace this boot trend come autumn.
