Higher Ground

Tall black boots are a wardrobe staple. With fall upon us, the tendency is to go for lots of layers. Some killer boots can give even the coziest, comfy-est look a little sex appeal, so kick your Uggs to the curb.

 During the day, think looks with blazers, sweaters and jeans with a rock vibe a la Kate Moss and Emmanuelle Alt.

Leopard too much for you? How about pairing a classic trench with your boots. How great are Lauren Santo Domingo's custom boots? Sky high black leather held up with garter belts.

 Skirts (with or without tights) plus boots is straight out of the swinging sixties, when fashion icons like Brigitte Bardot popularized thigh high styles (without looking like a go go girl).

 Jane Fonda proves if you have great legs, show them off or better yet highlight them with short hemlines and killer boots. Her look reminds me of Kate Moss's glam yet bohemian style of today .

 And how can you forget Anne Hathaway's transformation in The Devil Wears Prada from schlumpy to sexy with a new haircut and some fabulous Chanel boots.

 And since life imitates art, or vice versa, Anna Wintour proves leather boots are anything but trendy, she's been sporting mostly Manolo styles for years. 

Whether you prefer uptown pairings, like Anna's, or the downtown chic looks of Kate Moss, no doubt you'll be hooked on boots this fall!

Fashion week came and went in a blur... Forget the front row celebrities and of the moment socialites (although they certainly make a splash), fashions veterans like Nina Garcia and Anna Dello Russo really brought the chic factor.

Jailhouse Rockin' in Stripes

Oscar de la Renta,
 Fashionistas seem to be smitten with stripes. Not so much the nautical variety, but thick black and white stripes. Clearly stripes are not just a passing phase, both on and off the runway, fashion week has seen its fair share of stripes. My favorite is the Oscar de la Renta striped gown. So simple yet so statement making as only Oscar can do.

 The design world loves stripes too. Modern spaces and traditional rooms alike.
