The thigh high boots trend returns this season. And it was Emilio Pucci’s Fall Winter 2013 Runway Show that got me head over heels for thigh boots, all over again. The look is more girly and softer this season as the collections showed them dressed with pieces in feminine lines and shapes, like pretty peacoats and shift dresses. The Emilio Pucci’s runway boots in the suede leather teamed with ruffle bottom skirts, delicate blouses and belted at the waist were some of my favorite looks. Then there was Celine with those dreamy soft leather boots that look as though they fit like leather gloves for the legs – creating a svelte like silhouette under oversized coats and voluminous shapes they showed. Thigh boots are versatile enough for both a casual or glamorous look, it’s all in the dressing. It’s a trend I love this season and here is some inspiration.
Thigh boots can be quite versatile for Winter dressing – just as easily dressed down for a casual day look as they can be jazzed up for a glam night out. For an edgier look go for calf or patent leather, wear them bare legged with shorts, or over tight leggings. For an even more daring look wear just a trench coat or dress coat belted at the waist and open split. This look is FABULOUS.
Cinch the waist and add some volume in the skirt and shoulders for a power look
For a girlier look look try suede leather and team with oversized sweaters, a tweed or frayed skirt, a flowy dress or a princess or pea coat in a pop of colour.
Teaming with knitwear (sweaters / cardigans) for a casual day look
Preppy and clean with a peacoat or princess coat
For a clean cut smart and girly look, team with a skirt + jacket or skirt + cardigan ensemble like Camilla Mackintosh and Hilary Duff below
