With triple-digit temperatures in the forecast for New York, you'd think Manhattanites would be bracing for the heat wave with their sandals and slides. Instead, fall boots have monopolized summer shoes because, well, they pair well with a short hemline and fashion comes first. Bella Hadid isn't the only one sporting knee-high boots in middle of July.
The Boroughs are so hot this summer even the buildings look to be sweating — the subway has become a literal sauna — but that's not stopping the street style gang from going out in leather knee-high boots.
The Hadids, Kendall Jenner, and Priyanka Chopra have singlehandedly turned this quintessential fall shoe into a summer 2019 staple. It may be sweltering, but a short dress and tall boots are still a match made in heaven.
Kendall Jenner may have been the one to spark the trend (unsurprisingly) during her trip to New York in June. Her leopard-print reformation dress and Stuart Weitzman boots made a hundred headlines and now, her bestie Bella Hadid is following her lead.
A day after sister Gigi debuted a new take on double denim, the 22-year-old wore her own version of a jean jacket over a white Oxford button-down worn as a dress. The black patent-leather boots were a nice touch.
This outfit formula is boding well for the fashion crowd lately. As it turns out, shorts and mini dresses are the perfect excuse to get more wear out your go-to fall boots. According to Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen, long maxis are, too.
No offense to sneakers and mules, but tall boots are definitely becoming summer's it-shoe. Hadid's shirt dress and denim jacket ensemble is a perfect way to try the polarizing trend this weekend. So, forget the heat wave and add a pair of black knee-high boots to your summer lineup stat.
