Just discard those old-fashioned stockings and brave winter’s chills in the most extravagant and eye-catching style possible by simply ‘booting-it up’ this season! And we take the cue from the runways of top brands sporting lissome models strutting about with designs to die-for…
Top of the pick is Gucci with a pair of snug, snake leather, thigh-high boots that will set the opposition talking, while Loriblu’s suede black boots feature stalks of pink roses to keep those eyes riveted firmly on your feet, Charlotte Olympia’s goes for a striking gold pattern while Casadei keeps the glams its heels with a tasteful touch of gold, Emilio Pucci flashes gold buckles on its black beauties, Moschino pays tribute to the highwayman of yore with a strapped number and Chloe teams a black suede and leather combo for that extra dash of mystery.
Go for colour urges Donna Karan’s cherry pink pair which almost looks like a pair of leggings until we spot those gorgeous heels which are sure to make you a sensation.
Venturing just up to your knees is Dior’s wedge heeled boots, Baldinini’s colourfully beaded pair, Hogan’s utterly colourful in purple with cheerful prints and a patterned pair from Santoni with a stiletto heels and a buckled front.
But let’s give you two valuable tips before you go simply overboard buying pair after pair of these ‘bootiful ‘creations…take care to first try them on and do walk around a bit to discover just how you feel. Always remember, when it comes to any kind of footwear, comfort should go hand in hand with style. As thigh-high boots tend to limit your movement, avoid choosing those with very high heels.
And regarding how you pair them with your skirts and dresses, it’s important that you do not team a tight dress with tight boots or you could end up extremely uncomfortable. Loose feminine tops and tunics go well with this variety of footwear and you’ll look great with a smart jacket, sweater or even a trench pulled over for that extra warmth.
