3 WAYS TO WEAR
OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
It’s been so long I don’t quite remember if it was my mother, a friend or a stranger on the bus who told me the worst investment you could do in your life was the one you didn’t make the most of it. A bad planned trip? Money down the drain. A book you never read and it ended up rotting in a closet? You could at least have used it to start a wood fire. A stunning pair of boots you wore twice last year? Clearly not your best investment.
Due to my intentions of reducing my clothing consumption, the fact that we’re within the coldest weeks of the year and that just a few days ago I realised the amount of long boots I own under my wardrobe, here are three different ways to wear them. Not your everyday combinations, the classics we all have already seen at the storefront on sale, on Instagram or on your cousin who can’t stop wearing them with jeans (hey, at least she made a good investment, huh?), but in three proposals that, although not transgressive, are sufficiently fresh so you dare to wear them on any day of the week.
Double coat, double versatility, double warmth and double visual interest. It’s essential for the coat you’re going to wear as a dress to be shorter than the second one. Top it up with a fanny pack or an unexpected bag to bring down the formality of the outfit. No one will know you’re not wearing anything underneath and you will make the most out of the simplest coat.
FOR MAX WARMTH
Born from my need of not wearing tight jeans and to masculinise its use with a basic coat, besides from not freezing yourself with culottes in winter. Preferably, pick a pair of boots that fit well on your ankles to help maintain a slender figure. If the boots are a different color from the culotte, even better!
WITH A PENCIL SKIRT
Pretty Woman would kill for this boots. Give them style -and finesse- with a pencil skirt that shows just a tiny bit of skin and accessories that contrast against the shine from the boots. You don’t have to dress skin-tight in order to look sensual, and this outfit is the proof.
