Selena Gomez Wore Fall's Most Anti–Quiet Luxury Boot Trend in Paris

When we look back at what defined fashion in 2023, it will undoubtedly be the quiet luxury aesthetic that has seemingly permeated every aspect of fashion. But as the end of the year nears, there are signs that people also just want to have fun with fashion. One person that's been displaying that as of late is Selena Gomez.

Gomez is currently in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, and some of her looks have been far more "maximalist" than "quiet luxury". While many of the fall 2023 shoe trends are understated and elegant (think riding boots and slingback flats), Gomez opted to wear the least quiet luxury shoe trend of them all to go to a restaurant last night. That trend is snakeskin boots. For context, Khaite can be credited with reviving the snakeskin trend with its python-studded S/S 23 collection. Ever since then, the fashion crowd has been enamored.

In Paris, Gomez wore a pair of thigh-high Stuart Weitzman boots, keeping the rest of the outfit simple with a white button-down and corset and denim miniskirt. It's a look that's easy to replicate with the right tools—the most important one being the snakeskin boots. Given that, scroll on to shop some of the best pairs on the internet.
