The winning look on Naeem Khan’s bridal runway this fall? Thigh-high stiletto bridal boots. Created by Naeem Khan and Christian Louboutin, this killer footwear brought an unexpected twist to Khan’s collection, begging us to ask — is this the next wedding fashion trend? Because there’s just something about miles of white backed by that trademark red heel that we can’t get enough of.
Paired with knee-length wedding dresses, each set of boots are delicately embroidered and jeweled in their own right, infused with their own sense of style. The more opulent and gracefully beaded set complemented a sparkling modern lace mini dress with beaded fringe for a refined Studio 54 vibe while the second set, adorned with floral appliques for a bit more flair, were worn under a feminine fit and flare cocktail dress with similar floral embroidery, opposite a floor-length veil.
Chic? We think so. Rife with texture, these wedding day boots are fashion-forward and have a bit of edge. They’re perfect for a seasonal transition, such as winter to spring when you’re still stuck in the harbor of cold and warmth, seeking a more bare and flirty style but still trying to protect yourself from the lingering chill.
Of course, the best way to flaunt this look is underneath a short hemline, as Khan paired it with — when you ditch tradition, you should really go all out! But we’d also love to see a waterfall hemline frame a pair of wedding day boots for a fun peek-a-boo effect. Perhaps with the advent of the pantsuit, we’ll soon start to see short rompers for the big day — and if we do, we know we’ll want to see a pair of knee-high boots right along with it.
No matter which way they’re worn, there’s no denying the look is modern with a slightly urban feel — and it takes a bold bride who owns her style to pull it off.
Would you wear wedding boots like these down the aisle?
