“These boots are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do,” no one understands the chic sex appeal of a great pair of boots like Nancy Sinatra. Her infamous song celebrated the fabulous footwear and has been the mantra for all fashionistas strutting their fabulousness in boots. From the ankle to the thigh, from moccasins to leather this season there is no style that doesn’t come with a complimentary boot to complete their look. Whether you’re style is bohemian, sophisticated, or rocker-chic this is a wardrobe essential. From Christian Louboutin to Topshop boots are hot in the shops!
If you are not sure which style is right for you, remember that with boots, like all clothing it is all about the right cut. Knowing your body shape and what style suits you can take an outfit from acceptable to amazing! If you are on the shorter side, invest in a high-heeled pair which elongates the body. If you have thicker legs, avoid ankle or calf-length boots, instead try full-length boot which ends just above the knee. If you’re just looking to elongate then try this year’s must-have look and try the thigh-high boots. Long pull-on boots that are tight around the ankle give legs contour and length!
Ankle boots can be the perfect accessory to a dress. From a wool sweater dress to a cotton paisley dress ankle boots don’t have to be seasonal! They add a bit of gypsy flair to any outfit but are also perfect for contrasting more structured styles. Best of all they look fabulous with tucked in jeans! Perfect, for cold winter days when summer flats just won’t cut it. Some of the best ankle boots can be found right on the Highsteet; Topshop has one of the most fabulous collection of ankle boots which come in both flat and heeled styles. You can find these at Topshop.
The thigh-high boot is hot on the runways this season. It is sexy and suits nearly every shape as it elongates the body while spicing up any look. Whether with a dress or jeans, nothing looks stale with thigh-highs. Louboutin, Tory Burch, Stella McCartney and Gucci all have thigh-high boots this season that come in an array of colours and (faux) leathers. Want the same look on a budget? Chinese Laundry has a large array of boots that look virtually the same!
So fellow fashionistas find the boots which suit you and strut your stuff, because as Ms. Sinatra sang, “these boots were made for walking” and that just what you should do!
