Oh, Tom Ford, where will you draw the line? As a fashion editor and writer, I’ve been behind you since the days of Gucci, YSL and certainly your namesake collections. And as a designer-turned-director, you have an amazing talent for understanding what we want to see, what the next big thing is and, ultimately, what will titillate us.

I’ve never looked at Taylor Momsen and said: “Gee, I wish I could dress like her!” But I have studied Lourdes Ciccone Leon trying to figure out her style secret. So I’m only half embarrassed to admit that I actually enjoyed perusing the Material Girl section during a recent trip to Macy’s.

Oprah said Bootights will revolutionize your closet, and we can’t agree more. This special legwear eliminates the need to wear socks over your tights because the sock is built right in. But no one will see your socks when you wear ankle, mid-calf, knee-high, or over-the-knee boots. Bootights are available in a variety of colors and textures, so your style doesn’t have to suffer. We’re happy not to suffer squished toes for warmth this winter.
