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 COATED,
DOUBLE VERSATILY

 

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.

UNDER CULOTTES
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!

SNEAK PEEK
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.

  1. Me encantaron todas tus propuestas!! *3* Lastima de vivir en un lugar de playa (donde el frío no existe ni en navidad) sino aplicaría todas tus ideas!

    1. Hola Myki, supongo que vivir en un sitio tan templado tiene sus ventajas (no tienes que invertir en prendas de lana y cashmere que son súper caras), pero me imagino que te haría ilusión vestir de invierno :D. Haré más posts así con prendas de primavera/verano 🙂 xx

    1. Hi Ela, thank you so much! The green boots are my current favorites, I almost never pay full price for this kind of items but these were calling my name so hard. xx

  2. Seeing as how I experience cold seasons like once in two years now, I can’t find any good excuse to buy over-the-knee boots, unfortunately. I did enjoy wearing just-below-the-knees boots when I was in my early 20s studying overseas, so I guess I shouldn’t feel TOO left out… But oh I would loveee to get my hands on the last pair of black boots you wear here, they look like they’re the easiest to match (and hence probably more justifiable in purchasing…?).
    What a BRILLIANT advice: “The worst investment you could do in your life was the one you didn’t make the most of it.” I am definitely going to remember this one.
    I’m trying to be more conscious about adding things to my closet too (it’s reeeally hard but I’m trying), so it’s fantastic to see one of my favourite bloggers ever getting on the same path. (PS: That’s you, in case that wasn’t clear.)

    1. Hi Liyana! I totally get about not been able to find a good excuse to spend so much on a pair of boots you would wear so little. Happened the same to me when I used to live on Mexico. The boots are actually green BUT if you ever decide to get your own pair, make it in black and in a breathable material (not leather, as much as it hurts me to recommend you that haha).
      Thank you so, so much for all your support. Love you lots and wish you the greatest week. xx
