Top Sellers: High Boots, Bright Tights.

We're not sure where you are, but here in Ch-ch-ch-icago the cold slapped down this past weekend and has not abated – good for the marathon, and good for breaking out those high boots and leggings. (Miraculously, we can still see the sun. We give it another couple days.) Cold weather and bright skies make a fine shopping day. We saw a healthy uptick in sales of boots and leggings, a trend worth exploring in more detail as it is one of our favorite looks this season.

Above are some of our most popular (and our most favoritest) selections from last week as fall got down to business.

Leggings by HUE (left to right): Merino Wool Tight - Graphite Heather | Denim Legging - Navy | Super Opaque Control Top Tights - Violet
High Boots (left to right): Restricted Vamp - Taupe | Jeffrey Campbell Wishlist-2 - Black | Jeffrey Campbell A-Plus - Black

We're in love with denim and sweater leggings. These are a nice compliment to motorcycle boots and worker boots. Layer on the texture and keep color shifts within a narrow palette – taupes and grays, grays and blacks, blacks and blacks – to let the texture contrasts stand out. Or take an OTK boot like the JC A-Plus that has all the texture you'll ever need and punch it up with an opaque tight in deep, rich jewel tones.
