Fashion Police Glossary: The Peep Toe Boot Rule > Fashion Police

Peep toe boots with ugly sweatpants

The Peep Toe Boot Rule is a Fashion Police rule of thumb which states that where a pair of peep-toe-boots are found, another crime of fashion is likely to be occurring somewhere in the same outfit. For instance, in the example above, the peep-toe-boot crime is compounded by the wearing of a pair of saggy sweatpants with ugly boxer shorts attached to them. God help that model.

The Peep Toe Boot rule is a handy tool for Fashion Police officers on patrol, allowing them to easily narrow down suspects. Out in public in peep toe boots? Don’t be surprised to be pulled over and searched: even if the boots themselves don’t offend our sense of aesthetics (and they probably will), the very fact that you’re wearing them means you have a higher than usual chance of being a fashion criminal. And we have to check that out.

Exceptions to the Peep Toe Boot Rule:

There are some (rare) exceptions to the peep toe boot rule: times when peep toe boots are worn, but the rest of the outfit passes the Fashion Police’s strict quality checks. Our officers recently identified Gwyneth Paltrow as an exception to the rule, for instance: we’re still watching her, though.

An extension of the Peep Toe Boot Rule:

While the wearing of peep toe boots makes you more likely to be committing a secondary Crime of Fashion, it’s also true to say that any outfit worn with peep toe boots would look better with some other form of footwear. There are no exceptions to this that we have seen.
