THIGH'S THE LIMIT



Leggings and tights have basically made traditional pants obsolete. Now fall footwear appears to be all thigh-grazing boots. Weitzman's fall 2009 ad campaign features his "HIHO" suede boot ($675), 12 square feet of leather on top of a killer 100mm heel. "What brought it about was leggings -- girls got used to covering up their legs with different textures and colors, and this is a similar look," he says. "Heels make you feel powerful and sexy.

For their fall shows, Prada showed rubber versions of the boots and Antonio Berardi lined suede pairs in fur. Christian Louboutin has a gorgeous suede and mesh cutout pair, and Beyoncé sported a pair of Cavalli's $2,300 stretch leather pair in her "Sweet Dreams" video. To appear more lady and less lady of the night, see our tips for the simple rules of booting.
1. If your are under 18 or over 60, don't wear them.
2. Stay sleek and chic. No neon bright patent leather, or animal print designs.
3. Black is the new black, and only black.
4. When pairing the boots with skirts, show some skin.
5. Stilettos are perfect for nighttime activities, but not so at work.
6. Girls with shorter legs should pair them with miniskirts and tights. Leggy ladies can rock the tucked-in-jeans look with ease.
