When over-the-top is just right…
You may have noticed over-the-knee boots are everywhere this Autumn/Winter. As a stylist I’m often asked for my opinion on them. I love them - well, I love some of them! It’s really about choosing the right style and sticking to a few guidelines to ensure the overall look is cool, sexy and effortless rather than Dick Whittington!
If you are tempted to try them I would always recommend choosing suede as opposed to leather and a mid-block heel or flat rather than a stiletto heel. Also, remember there are other colours as opposed to black: navy, grey and chocolate brown are great alternatives and can give a rich and luxurious feel to your overall look.
Once you have found the perfect pair – try wearing with a:
- long knitted dress
- white shirt, skinny jeans and long boyfriend jacket
- shorter skirt and oversized knit
- black evening dress and long coatigan
- culottes and silk blouse
My final piece of advice – invest in a good quality pair which will keep their shape and stay up! Here are just 3 of my favourite brands Unisa; Stuart Weitzman; Uterque and some fabulous style inspiration.
Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
