How To Wear Thigh High Boots With A Dress

Let's be honest, some pieces of clothing can be intimidating. I've heard it countless times, from friends, from family and even from myself and I'm sure nearly everyone has felt the same at some point. When people are sifting through the rails in a high street shop, an interesting piece catches their eye and they say "that wouldn't suit me"! or "I'm too old for that" or "I could never pull that off!". One of these intimidating pieces has got to be the thigh high boot and that's especially true when stepping away from the safer boots-over-jeans look. Public Desire challenged me to style a pair of their wonderful thigh high boots with a dress to prove that actually, they can look pretty dang cool with a number of pieces in your wardrobe and with the loom of Autumn and Winter, we need to find some way to get some wear out of those lovely lil dresses don't we?!





For me, the thigh high boots are all about making a statement. They look amazing teamed with little dresses and personally I think the outfit comes together in a much easier way if there's a slight length difference between the hem of the dress and the top of the boot. Leaving a little bit of leg on show between the two pieces of clothing can just mean that the outfit doesn't look too busy and it gives the sillhouette a bit of shape.

These thigh high Janine Boots are my idea of a perfect boot. The heel height give little old me a bit of a boost (we all know I'm lacking in the height department!) and as my frame is quite small, the ties at the back of the boot mean that it can be adjusted to fit my leg shape. Obviously it's no fun when over the knee boots are hanging off you or are basically cutting your circulation off so this is an uh-mazing feature if you struggle to get the right fit for your leg shape!

My advice for finding your own style with thigh high boots would be to experiment, experiment, experiment! You don't have to feel intimidated by any style and over the knee boots with dresses is far too cool of a look to miss out on this Autumn and are perfect if you have any city breaks or mini holidays booked for the next few months. I think this is my third pair of over the knee boots now and I don't see any sign of me slowing down! Next I think I'd like to push myself out and try some real statement ones like this pair of red over the knee boots - I'm getting so many off-duty model vibes from them and even though they are ordinarily a colour that would terrify me, I think they're what I need to go for as the seasons and styles change for AW17.

What do you think of over the knee boots with dresses?

  2. I love over the knee boots but I've always been really terrified of trying them. They seem to be too much for me hhaha. But now you are really convincing me to try them.
    I think you should go for the red ones! They are so amazing.

  4. You are totally right. I'm afraid of certain pieces of clothes because I don't know how will they look but sometimes it's about making an statement of simply just doing what you want to do and the boots are incredible and they look amazing on you!!
