Kinky Boots: How to wear knee highs

As soon as I saw these burgundy knee highs I was totally and irrevocably in love.

Finally a pair of tall boots slender enough for my legs! Plus I am a sucker for anything of a berry hue. At £109, these were a little out of my usual price range so I actually saved for them. Not only did I  crave these boots; I earned them.

Now knee-highs aren’t always the easiest thing to wear. 9/10 I think an ankle boot looks neater. But I was determined to find a way to work these beauties into my wardrobe.

Keep it cosy

Of course, the main purpose of tall boots is to keep your legs warm. Initially I wasn’t too sure about wearing them with my leather-look jeans but I have come to the conclusion you simply cannot have too much leather. In fact, I’ve got for triple leather  with my little sleeveless biker jacket. With the addition of my chunky polo-neck jumper, this must be one of my cosiest outfits (what?! Alice wearing something sensible?! Never).

If you do fancy following in my leather-clad footsteps, I recommend you order the boots in a size up. Never in my life have I been a UK7 apart for with these. Also, the boots are on sale right now so yay for you and sad for me.

Shorts + boots= win

We’ve all seen the fashionistas in tiny shorts, thigh-high boots and bare legs. Well I like to think of this outfit as a toned-down version of that look because, frankly, bare legs are not feasible at this time of year, regardless of how great it looks.

I was worried that tall boots with shorts would divide my legs and make them look stumpy (not helpful when you’re only 5’2″). However, these boots have a healthy heel on them so no stumpy legs here. Woohoo. Plus I feel there’s something a bit pirate-chic about paper-bag shorts and knee-highs. Is that just me?

Be a boho babe

Knee high boots always channel a bohemian to me. Despite the fact these boots are quite chic, paired with a mini dress and the right accessories, they definitely channel a Sienna Miller/ Kate Moss vibe. Me likey.

What I think this outfit is missing is a wine-cloured bag to tie in the boots *swiftly purchases one from Boohoo*.

Go on- pass on the ankle boots for once,
