Velvet Crush

Alberta Ferretti Velvet Boots

If you thought over-the-knee boots were just a fleeting trend, think again! What we like to consider a new closet staple, the daring silhouette is here to stay and ready to rock your wardrobe this fall. For inspiration on the look, we’re turning to Italian designer Alberta Ferretti who killed it on the catwalk with a plethora of OTK styles, including today’s velvet beauties

More than just a little crush, we are unabashedly enamored with these alluring thigh-high boots. Everything about them—their audacious shape, soft velvet material and chunky heel—makes our fashion-driven hearts sing. To master your own Alberta Ferretti-inspired runway getup, try a pair of comparable over-the-knee boots teamed with a shift dress, faux fur coat and tweed headband! OTK? OOC!

Availability: Alberta Ferretti Velvet Boots ($1175). For additional information, visit
