First, we saw it in Copenhagen, then we spotted it in New York, and now again in London. What could it be? Did you guess? If you said thigh high and knee oversized boots, you are a street style spotter!
Our motto is “the bigger the boot the better” and this trend started on the street this fashion month and made its way on the catwalk. In Toga’s show we saw the girls wearing a variety of oversized boots but what made these special was how thick they were made. You couldn’t see the models legs it almost looked like they were in leg warmers! The Natasha Zinko show also had big boots however those boots had pockets on the side which we absolutely love. In the Ports 1961 show all the high boots had an accent color which made the boot stand out. We were impressed with this classy look and like the simplicity of the idea while looking extremely sharp. Victoria Beckham was a crowd pleaser wearing thigh high boots however, the front part was open toed. You can also check them out on JW Anderson and Rejina Pyo shows.
The best part about the thigh-high boots is that they are so easy to style. If you are going for a sexy and seductive look like Jeanette Friis Madsen did. a long skirt with a slit is one of the best ways to show off your legs. If you are going for an everyday casual look pair the boots with jeans or even just tuck your pants into your boots. Evangelie Smyrniotaki tucked her pants in boots look creates such cool ridges in the boot which gives more detail and if you get the same color or print boot as your pants like Doina Ciobanu did with a matching snake print pants and boots it looks like a full outfit. You can even wear dresses or shorts and match the high boots for an edgy look like Leonie Hanne did on London Fashion Week. The high boots definitely create a statement and add so much style.
We can’t wait to see you try this trend because this season thigh high boots are a MUST have item so don’t forget and purchase your own pair!
