And the puffer accessory trend continues! This past season brought us puffer scarves, the neck-warming complement (or alternative) to the classic puffer jacket. Recently, a new option has been ushered into the limelight by Bella and Gigi Hadid — the puffer bootie! Now this is what we call a winter boot.
New York Fashion Week in February can be unforgivingly cold, but the Hadid ladies seem to have it all figured out with this outerwear-as-footwear situation. Both Gigi and Bella rocked the Daphne Puffer Bootie by Alchimia di Ballin, a style from the label’s Fall 2018 collection that retails for $895. Because sisters share everything, right? Even exorbitantly priced shoes, as it turns out. (Photo via James Devaney/GC Images)
Bella took the technical satin style out for a spin in an all-black Matrix-inspired way, complete with vinyl pants and vinyl fur-trimmed coat. Gigi’s take was lighter and brighter, combining all-white everything with a hint of springy color. It was like good versus evil: a sartorial battle of the boots. (Photo via Gotham/GC Images)
There’s no telling yet whether the puffer bootie is a trend that will trickle down to the masses. But if anyone can make an out-there style in demand, it’s the sisters Hadid. (Photo via Alchimia di Ballin)
