These Are Officially the Most Popular Designer Boots of 2020

Sometimes certain Hollywood trends don't end up translating for real shoppers—perhaps a latex dress just doesn't feel right outside of a red carpet event. But in the case of Prada's Pouch-Detailed Leather Lace-Up Boots ($1350), the shoes were not only spotted on a ton of well-dressed A-listers like Rihanna and Bella Hadid, but they also sold like crazy. 

How do I know this? Well, the numbers don't lie. Moda Operandi shared with Who What Wear its top 20 best-selling items of the year and the Prada clunkers were the #1 boots on the list. Despite being an investment piece, the shoes enjoyed widespread appeal from both celebrities and shoppers alike—the truest sign of a crossover hit. Scroll down to see how celebs wore the popular boots and browse the rest of Moda Operandi's top 20 best-sellers list of the year.

Next, an expert told me the 5 most soothing colors to wear right now

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
