The thigh-high boot gets a slouchy upgrade.

Isabel Marant


Hands up if you’ve worn a pair of sleek leather thigh-high boots that were oh-so-sexy but then had to spend half the night pulling them up after they slipped down to your calves. We’ve all been there. Thankfully, the winter warrior has received a more practical update this season courtesy of Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent and the creative team at Isabel Marant. With a slouchy silhouette, the boot allows the fabric to scrunch up near the ankles, and is roomy enough to tuck your skinny jeans or leggings into. Why not try pairing plaid boots with a bold jacket a la Off-White? And if you feel the trend is a tad understated for your taste, you could opt for a jaw-dropping diamante version from Saint Laurent sporting 3,000 rhinestones. As the saying goes, “Go big or go home!”
