Student Trend Saturday: Tall Boots

Fall in full swing at UCLA can only mean one thing: bring on the boots. The always trendy and ever practical long boot is perfect for stomping on leaves and adding an extra layer of warmth. Believe it or not, long boots were originally made for men! Over the knee boots were first created for men as an added protection while on horseback. It wasn’t until the 1960s when major fashion brands such as Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent began to showcase tall boots in their fashion shows, as a call against the forced femininity of corsets and skirts at the time.
Nowadays, the long boot is a major trend amonst women and is the perfect shoe for fall. Any outfit can go from casual to fall trendsetter with a pair of knee or thigh high boots. Pair this fall trend with a skirt for a chic look or with jeans for a comfy yet stylist option! Here’s a look into how some Bruins have decided to style their long boots:
