Fall’s Favorite: Over-The-Knee” Boots

September 16, 2013

Meet this fall’s hottest new trend; the over-the-knee boots! First spotted at Balmain and Philip Lim’s runways and even picked up by H&M in their Paris Show Collection  (boots all sold out).This is one of the trends I am really excited about.  Fall came early over here, all gladly accompanied by huge amounts of rain and much cooler temps. Great,… just what we need! I needed an instant mood lifter, so I chose for a fresh change in my  fall wardrobe. 
Check out my newest obsession! 

Boots: Unisa here or I like this similar pair too here Skirt: Daphnea, Cardigan: Mes fashion, Belt: (thrifted) at Ladyland Amsterdam, Shirt: H&M divided, Snake ring: H&M.

If you are a regular reader of this blog. You may know, I love color, print and texture mixing. Black and white combinations are always trending and such a classic, you can never ever go wrong with them! When you choose a small print like the skirt I am wearing you can easily mix it with a bolder pattern like I did by adding a warm fuzzy cardigan, blazer or jacket. If you want to add even more “oomph” you can finish it off with a fun embellished belt. It is all about trying new things and make sure you balance out the look by wearing let’s say a classic white shirt. The white will instantly tone it all down, while still adding that ” basic feel” to it. The outfit will look timeless,  yet very trendy because print mixing has been a definite “do” for a while now.

When I choose an outfit I always and really always try to mix these elements:

1: Trendy (modern) vs timeless.
2: Classic feminine vs edgy.

So if you would love to wear an item that is not so in style anymore. No worries! Try mixing it with something uber trendy and everyone will think you are the coolest chick on the block by bringing it back. How about you? Are you as excited as I am “over the knee” boots are back in style? Are they a yay or nay for you this fall and winter? Thanks for stopping by.
