This season thigh high boots have become a firm favourite both on the catwalk and on the feet of our favourite celebrities. Our biggest style crush Kim Kardashian has been spotted rocking the footwear in a variety of different styles, from extreme lace-up detailing to faux suede and even plastic. Whilst we're not quite ready to start wearing clear plastic boots to work, we're definitely in love with the versatility and practicality that thigh high boots provide.
If you're worried that you're too small to pull off thigh high boots, we've got good news for you- this style is flattering no matter what height you are. Whilst traditionally this look was associated with taller women, the truth is that that the length of the footwear will actually elongate your legs. So (if you're a little on the short side) thigh high boots will help to make your legs look longer and slimmer, plus the heel will give your height an extra boost.
Thigh high boots are perfect for parties and night-out looks, as they will give your outfit an instant edge and are a great key piece for in-between seasons. They can also be styled down for during the day without making your outfit too dramatic or formal. For day-wear, choose boots that have a sturdy block heel instead of a stiletto. These will be comfortable if you need to stand on your feet all day, and are also more casual than a sharp, pointed heel. Whilst thigh high boots come in a wide variety of different styles and fabrics, our favourite is the classic faux suede style. The soft fabric is easy to wear but also durable, meaning your boots will stay in great condition season after season.
Investing in a pair of thigh high boots this autumn/winter means not only will you be one step ahead of the fashion curve, but you'll also have a quality piece of footwear that you can add to any outfit for a classic but contemporary look.
