trend alert: boots & bare legs

one trend has been catching my eye a lot lately: chunky ankle boots worn with mini dresses and short shorts over bare legs. I love how it adds a rock chic appeal to any outfit and makes legs look sky-high. while waiting for the appropriate weather, I browsed through some photos for inspiration.

ankle boots are a star item in spring/summer 2010 collections:
3.1 philip lim/ 3.1 philip lim/ balmain/ burberry

igor chapurin/ versace/ givenchy

alexa chung is one big devotee of the look. her beloved black, chunky ankle boots accentuate her chopstick-thin long legs, therefore her signature gamine appeal.

real-life blair waldorf olivia palermo is a huge fan aswell. with ankle boots, she adds some instant edge to her preppy, feminine, glitzy outfits.

alexa and olivia aren't the only celebs who recently sported ankle boots on bare legs.
my favorites are anja rubik with her rock star/goddess look, and rachel weisz; who combined her boots with a ladylike frock for an uber-cool finish.

rachel weisz/ selena gomez/ whitney port/ nina garcia

and, as always, my favorite part: street style!
