You've probably seen over-the-knee (OTK, in style-speak) boots in every possible color and style in Hollywood and on fashion blogs aplenty, but I'm willing to bet you haven't seen any like Amal Clooney's lace OTK boots. According to People, Clooney wore just about the most gorgeous pair of boots I ever did see, but the price will make your heart stop for a hot minute.
The British lawyer stepped out in London with her husband, George Clooney, and made the fashion world's It fall shoe so much fancier (I mean, of course she did). The Dolce & Gabbana stocking boots were thigh-high, super skin tight, and covered in black lace. It's like old-world meets modern, a little bit elegant, a little bit edgy, and just everything that my boot dreams are made of. But these beauties are going to cost you — $1,195. Yikes.
The style statements didn't stop there, of course. Clooney paired her stunning boots with a floral mini dress and a bright red coat, making a case to go bright and colorful with fall fashion. She is seriously such a trendsetter, and I have yet to see an outfit of hers that I don't want to immediately steal.
Flawless, per usual.
