When over-the-top is just right…

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 UnisaStuart WeitzmanUterque and some fabulous style inspiration.

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
