The Thigh's The Limit!

Street style: Over the knee boots

This fall, boots have hit a new high. Literally! Thigh-high or over the knees boots have become a must-have and it accessory this season. Nothing says chic quiet like a gorgeous pair of thigh-high boots! They can instantly elevate your fall outfit to several notches. It's edgy, classy and oh so hot! These statement boots are as eye-catching as they're trendy. They've been endorsed by dozens of celebs, fashion insiders, and the who's who of the fashion world. Over the knee boots were particularly dominant in the collections of Phillip Lim, Chanel, Tom Ford and many more. So now that you've got the memo, here's how you can hit the trend and make a statement:

1. Topshop boots - $270
2. Dune boots - $456
3. Phillip Lim boots - $975
4. Asos boots - $143
5. Guess boots - $159

Tips on how to work the trend:
  • You're not Julia Roberts from "Pretty Woman"! Don't pair thigh-high boots with super short, figure hugging dresses or body-con skirts. Not cool. At all. Wear them with skinny jeans, leggings and skater skirts. 
  • Since these boots are a statement in itself, try keeping your other accesories muted. They're pretty much enough to steal the show!
  • Try sticking to neutral colours when buying thigh high boots as they tend to be pricey. Go for a black or brown coloured pair that will go with everything. 
  • Patterned, printed, textured and embellished or super shiny, patent leather thigh high boots are a big no-no! Keep it classy, simple and elegant with a single hued pair of boots.
  • It's a myth that this trend is only meant for tall girls. Petite girls too can rock the trend. Just remember to match the colour of your boots with your jeans or leggings. They'll make your legs look miles long. 

So, what do you guys think about this trend? How would y'all style your over the knee boots?
