This Is the Feature That Makes Cowboy Boots Flattering

Today marked one of the most highly anticipated collections of the season at Paris Fashion Week: Clare Waight Keller's debut collection for Givenchy. Waight Keller, the former creative director for Chloé, saw much success at that veteran French fashion house, so the industry has been buzzing about what she would do in her new role at Givenchy upon taking the reigns from Riccardo Tisci.

Her debut collection, shown this morning, was full of polished, cool-glam pieces in a mostly black, white, and red palette. Many of the looks were paired with a boot style that's been trending for fall: cowboy boots. Waight Keller gave hers an ultra-flattering update by creating a deep V-shaped scallop at the boot's shaft. Instead of cutting the legs off just below the knee, they showed a little more skin, which in turn lengthened the appearance of the legs. We fully expect to see this chic, flattering take on the cowboy trend on plenty of fashion girls come spring.
