STYLE GURU STYLE: Thigh-Highs

It’s January and we still haven’t seen snow in NYC. Isn’t that crazy? Usually I’d be bundled in layers and asking myself why have I not moved to California yet, but this year hasn’t been that way. We’ve had our cold days, but we’ve been blessed with way warmer days as well. This kind of weather is perfect for bringing out my thigh-high babies.

Thigh-high boots have been making their way back into trend, especially with the lusted after Stuart Weitzman boots. Burberry has also given me inspiration with the thigh-high style by giving it a feminine touch with a dress. Inspired by the Burberry collection, I wore a skirt instead of a dress because I don’t have many dresses. A solid, neutral colored skirt or dress is best when paired with thigh high boots in order to keep the balance of the look. A loud patterned dress may be a bit much, especially when we want the focus of the look to be on the boots. If you want to wear a patterned or colored dress, make sure it’s not overwhelmingly loud or it may look overdone. The point of this look is to remain simple, but still looking chic.

I like the all-black look much better than a white dress because it gives off an edgier vibe, but I love how the length of the dress is very flattering when paired with the thigh high boots. Some outfits can look a bit overdone with thigh high boots and make people look short. By showing a little skin, you are able to give the impression of elongating your legs. It also looks less suffocating.

This style of boot can give off a very sexy, but chic vibe without overdoing it. It’s also great for keeping your legs warm on a chilly day.

For accessories, I went for a black bag with silver studs and added my own bag charm for some personality and pop. Bag charms are great for adding a little spice to your outfit and they’re nearly available everywhere.
