Covet: Biker Booties

When done by Stuart Weitzman, studs and black leather are nothing but chic.

It’s the trend that won’t die: tough-girl boots. This season, you can pick your poison—grunge combat boots, punk-leaning buckled and spiked boots, black studded rocker boots. The question I hear most is: How’s a decidedly non-punk, non-grunge, non-rocker chick supposed to wear ‘em? My answer: Invest in a still-sophisticated version like Stuart Weitzman’s studded Cityslicker pair, which mix a sleek silhouette with just-tough-enough hardware. Throw these on with a gauzy dress and an oversized grandfather cardigan for an early-fall go-to look. Rock on.
