STYLE GURU STYLE: Thigh-High Or The High Way

A new year is the perfect opportunity to try out a daring look. Whether it’s a bold lip color, a statement necklace or a pair of over-the-knee boots, never miss the chance to spice up your wardrobe. This winter, my obsession has been over-the-knee boots. I fell in love with the effortlessly-chic look these boots have when paired with a T-shirt dress. This season, Isabel Maran’s pre-fall 2016 collection was my source for inspiration. This collection has a series of looks consisting of knit dresses and trousers paired with over-the-knee boots. The boots were enough to transform the dresses from girly to edgy.

Every outfit needs a touch of edge. Even when I wear girly silhouettes, I like to pair leather jackets, chokers or suede boots to add a touch of punk. I find it fun to add an element that is out of the ordinary to any outfit. It’s not every day you see a pair of black suede over-the-knee boots paired with a simple outfit—until now.

Suede has been an old friend that is coming back around. From crop tops to mini skirt, suede has made its come back this season. Suede was something found frequently in my winter wardrobe this season. I now own four suede coats, three pair of suede boots and two suede skirts from this season. That may sound outrageous but keep in mind Fashionista/os, spending money on timeless pieces is always a good investment. Take risks with your wardrobe this season by trying new silhouettes and materials in your daily looks.
