Rise of the Thigh high boots
When we say thigh high boots we know, from experience, that will immediately bring to mind, PVC, street corners and Julia Roberts. Now, even though we would certainly don a pair like Vivian’s if it meant we got Richard Gere (Pretty Woman era) as a side dish, we will admit, they may not be quite suitable for everyday life!
The trend though has filtered down to our our very own high streets and is high on the fashionista trend list this winter! And, contrary to popular belief you don’t have to be stick thin to join in and there a bucket load of different styles to choose from! We would probably steer clear of a stiletto toe and heel and high shine if you want to move out of call girl territory and instead head for a flat or chunky heel, rounded toe and a bit of suede texture to soften the look.
Vamp them up with a dress and tights or down with tight jeans and chunky, oversized knit for ultimate casual chic, and to top it off, your legs will be nothing but cosy and warm as the winter chill sets in!
Overall (although they’re a little harsher on the wallet than their ankle counterparts!) we’re backing this glam trend and think that thigh high boots are the way forward this winter! So we have found some of our trend faves, with a variety of budget options depending on how generous you, your significant other or your entire family are feeling!!
