Oh my goodness, my internet has been down since 1pm yesterday but it’s seriously felt like much longer than that! I finally had a break where I can get a lot of my work done, and of course that had to happen – don’t the worst things occur when you have several things to accomplish?! Sigh. It’s obviously back up and running now; plus, I have cable! Pretty excited to watch Gossip Girl, 90210, ANTM, and Project Runway on real time – probably will be tweeting my thoughts while watching, too, hehe.
So once again, the seventies vibe is sweeping through our closets and the streets, this time with knee-high boots! Instead of wearing this staple in the traditional way, why not try them with a long sheer dress or that leather pencil skirt you’ve been lusting after! I absolutely love the fact that I can wear more than one trend in a single outfit this season – they’ve done such a good job this time around with that – making it much easier for us to style our outfits. Wearing knee-high boots also help in bringing out your favorite pair of textured, patterned, colored, or sexy tights, socks, and leggings!
What killed off the knee-high boot fad last time around was the specific way of wearing it: over a skinny jean. This look has definitely turned into a cliche, preferred by women who are clearly under some sort of impression that it makes them look racy, when it’s just an easy way to sophisticate your look (not saying that’s a bad thing, but, it’s nice to switch it up even more!) This fall and winter, wear your boots with a skirt, ideally long enough to graze the top of the boots. Unless you’re a long-legged girl like me, I don’t think you want to foreshorten even more by diving yourself up into three parts (skirt, legs, boots). That may just be a personal preference, though! Either way – like I always say – experiment away! I didn’t mean for that to rhyme, just saying.
