The NY Times' Bill Cunningham regularly reports his observations of what’s new and noteworthy on the streets of New York City. His astute eye recently noticed New York women are obsessed with fringe boots, particularly these hippie-like Gucci Devendra Boots with Tassels ($1199). Not ready to spend that much on the haute hippie look? Here are some wallet-friendly alternatives.
If you want to go totally boho chic, longer fringe boots are a more modern take on the moccasins you used to wear to Camp Minnetonka as a kid. These Guess Rami Boots ($135) will look amazing with skinny jeans or a shorter skirt.
I personally prefer fringe running down the side in a more rustic color like these brown Steve Madden Arizonaa Boots ($96.71).
These Via Spiga Novella Boots ($253.90) are very close to the Gucci look but come in soft suede instead.
