Ever since I was a teenager, fall fashion magazines have been my favorites of the entire year. Traditionally the thickest, most packed issues, the fall pages of Seventeen and YM were always filled with incredible back-to-school looks and the belief that this year readers could look any way we wanted, do anything we tried, and be who we wanted to be (usually Kate Moss!).
This year, my fall faves from Vogue, to BAZAAR, to InStyle are noticeably thinner. And, getting dressed for daily life is a lot more casual than it ever was before. But, there are still some fashionable fall and winter looks that I am simply lusting after!
Because there is so much uncertainty in the world right now, versatility in all purchases is absolutely essential. And, nothing is more versatile than THE Chanel Musketeer Boots. These are the equestrian style boots which were featured in the Chanel Fall 2020 / Winter 2021 RTW Runway Show on every single model. Let me say that again. These boots were worn by every single model, with every single ensemble from weekend casual, to office wear, to Saturday date night.
Patterned tights? No problem. Short skirt. Got it. Cutaway trousers? Check. These boots were spectacular with absolutely everything.
What makes these boots so special? Crafted of calfskin in black and caramel, with a clever fold down top (termed Musketeer boots or seven-league boots) these boots have a sturdy 2 ½ inch heel that makes them easy to wear and comfortable all day.
Unfortunately, at $1800 (available at Chanel.com) these boots are way out of my price range. But, you can approximate the look with simple mid-shin equestrian boots, which are widely available at all major department stores, shoe stores, and even equestrian tack shops such as Dover Saddlery and State Line Tack.
