The over- the- knee or thigh- high boots have been a hit since 2009 on runway shows. And I have no surprise that this is one of the footwear trend now. This type of boots is the perfect transition shoe between winter and spring or between summer and autumn. With the unstable UK weather, over- the- knee boots work for every british woman’s ensembles for all times. When come to styling the boots, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman is what I associated with. If wear it properly, it looks more like street-style’r’ than street walker.
This is how I style mine:
Why we love it: All time accessories under the weather like Britain. There are also lots of different ways to make your outfits look cool and never out of trend. For example, brown riding boots would be nice to go with skirt and blazer for work or skinny jeans and a chuck sweater for brunch or day time look. Wear the classic black over- the- knee boot with A- line dresses or pencil skirt for work or leggings on the weekend.
How to style it: Over- the- knee or thigh high boots are such a statement piece to accessorise your outfits. Keep everything else in your ensemble e.g. make- up moderated. Balance the look with subtle smokey eyes and costume accessories competing for the attention. These boots are sexy any way you style them.
As we all know that living in a country with the most famous Queen Elizabeth we would get weather like April shower, May windy or June misery, therefore a cover up for our spring and summer is a must. Sometimes a cover up is just a little thin to me, with this season leather is everywhere including leather shorts, leather skirts and all time leather bag. As a result, a leather jacket is one of the garment that you need to carry around in this season.
Personally, I really like those two leather jackets from high street brand, one with Whistle and one with Zara. I think both of them will be looking great with long frocks or this season important colour yellow summer frocks. Especially wedding season like now, these leather jackets would be a good friend of your black lace dress or elegant silky white dress to create a grunge and sophisticated style in this spring and summer ,or may be in a wedding!!
