ALL IN THE DETAILS: Over-the-Knee Simplicity

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Over-the-Knee Simplicity

When I was growing up, tall boots had some heavy associations. “Nice girls” did not wear anything of the sort. There are a number of reasons why I disagree with that statement, but first and foremost, here’s my biggest reason: Trends have changed! We are in an era where ladies are feeling bold and challenging social norms in their fashion. This usually begins bold and shocking, but trickles down into our everyday style, no questions asked. Suddenly, the roots are forgotten and over-the-knee boots are not so controversial anymore.

This Fashionista styles her over-the-knee boots with simplicity and modesty. Because they are black suede, they really do not call a lot of attention to themselves. Instead, they add a subtle touch of interest. Tall black boots are easy to pair with countless looks. They are fashionable and always flattering. Aside from those, many aspects of her outfit are dainty and minimalist, which contrast and compliment the intrigue of her boots. She sports a chunky turtleneck sweater that is cute for the chilly weather and is a guaranteed win in the black and white stripe. The turtleneck is a tastefully modest counter to the stigma that surround these boots when we were growing up. Her medium-wash blue jeans are classic and effortless, which supports the simplicity of her look. Finally, she is rocking three studs in her ear: a tiny silver bar and two crystals.

Overall, this Fashionista has embraced the modern twist on a seemingly daring look. She is modest and simple, but does not miss a chance to strut one of the season’s biggest trends.
