Emily Ratajkowski Brings Back the Boots-Over-Jeans Look
To tuck or not to tuck—that is the question. The answer isn’t always easy to address where boots and jeans are concerned. Popular with Sloane Ranger types in the ’80s and supermodels such as Kate Moss in the ’90s, the styling trick seems to be making a comeback thanks to the likes of Emily Ratajkowski, who was spotted out in Los Angeles yesterday wearing the look.
During the colder months it can be especially cozy to keep one’s jeans in place with a pair of practical and stylish boots, and as Ratajkowski demonstrates, the idea works just as well in milder California climes, too. Her feminine blouse and neck scarf have an alluring ’70s appeal paired with light-wash denim by MOTHER, though it’s the over-the-knee boot that takes the spotlight here, footwear that could be easily stepped up for evening. Finishing with retro-inspired accessories—a Gucci horsebit shoulder bag and round sunnies, in this case—isn’t a bad way to elevate an easy, everyday ensemble, either.
