Flat Shoes

When discussing the top trends from the S/S 20 collections, Wintour mentioned flat shoes. A practical trend that’s also chic? Score. Flats—especially those slightly more statement-making styles—look particularly great with cropped jeans for that elevated yet laid-back vibe.

Boots

Last fall, Wintour mentioned that “the accessory of the season has to be the boot.” Well, boots of all varieties are still a must-have item in any closet. Wintour often compliments her winter looks with gorgeous knee-high boots, and we’re also feeling the silhouette right now—especially teamed with straight-leg jeans to give off that ironically cool “bunched” look. Skinnies with knee-high boots is another no-fail look.

Leopard print is basically a neutral these days and could go with just about anything, but we’re especially into how a leopard coat (one of Wintour’s recent coat recommendations) can amp up a denim fit, giving it quite the posh feel.
