No closet is complete without a pair of tall boots, and never before have they been so alluring. Fall has marked the return of precariously high heels in high voltage colors and glossy skins that allow you to cross-pollinate looks on a whim.
Winding gold zippers, sumptuous pearl leather and a stacked wooden heel give a little kick to Goldenbleu’s otherwise basic Hannah boots ($475). The San Francisco-based company also produces this look in richly hued patent leather: night (black), rain (blue) or desert (brown). Any of these options looks darkly romantic and a touch rock and roll when paired with the season’s lacy dresses.
Of course, high heeled boots such as these are easier to pull off when you’re not hobbled with discomfort. I’ve found that gelled cushion inserts allow me to stand (or dance up a Saturday night storm) for longer periods of time. When all else fails, find a spot with the most flattering lighting, sit down to rest your weary little piggies, and let your people come to you.
