Nothing makes you feel sassier than strutting your stuff in a killer pair of heels. Unfortunately, nothing makes your feet hurt more than strutting your stuff in a killer pair of heels. It’s a cruel world we live in.
I’m one of those people that craves the sass-factor, but lacks the pain threshold (and balancing skills) to be a regular heel wearer. Which is why I always end up wearing the same, now off-white, pair of trainers for all eternity. Alas, what can save me from my shoe conundrum? What can give me comfort, style and ultimate sass all in one go? Well, look no further than the classic knee-high boot.
This trend has been slowly taking over my Instagram feed for the last few weeks and I am completely here for it. It may be 2020, but we’re bringing back the swinging sixties with the knee-high boot trend and not only does it look fabulous, but the chunky block heel makes it the perfect shoe for those of you who don’t want to be crippled by the end of the day.
When browsing for my perfect pair online, I already had an idea of exactly what I wanted, and my vision came to me in the form of this gorgeous patent croc-print pair from Missguided (which were on sale too!) I absolutely loved the square toe detail at the front as well as the triangular block heel, they perfectly fitted the style I wanted. Plus, unlike thigh-high boots which I had tried wearing before, these are stiff material, so there’s no struggle trying to make sure they aren’t constantly falling down your legs! These really are the boots of the moment, so I wanted to write a little #ootd blog post to show you how I have styled them recently!
I first styled these boots with a simple black jumper dress. I got this oversized jumper from Bershka ages ago and sort of forgot about it until recently when I rediscovered it, don’t you just love it when that happens? This is a combination that I think you can’t go wrong with, and it’s so simple. You could also add a black blazer over the top if you want to opt for a more dressy style. I like to add in a belt around the waist for some more shape, but I also think it looks cool without one!
I wanted to make this more of a chic outfit so I added a classic beret and this lovely Chanel-esque bag from Newlife stores. I think these accessories really compliment the style of the boots and pull the whole outfit together, making the plain jumper dress base that bit more interesting.
This outfit was giving me 90s Clueless vibes and I am obsessed. I have had this skirt in my wardrobe for two years now and I still love it (even though I do struggle to breathe in it because it’s too tight). If there’s one combination that you can rely on to make you feel sassy AF, it’s the mini-skirt-knee-high-boot-combo. I think this checkered, pleated skirt just looks so good with the boots and I feel really confident when I wear this look.
I paired this skirt with a simple ribbed, high-neck top from Primark because I wear it with everything and I think a simple top is needed with the other components of the outfit. Lastly, I topped off the look with my favourite croc print mini bag from Primark that perfectly matches my boots! I have to say, I think this is my favourite look of the winter season, that I have worn many times and (as a shameless outfit repeated) will probably wear at least another 100 times…
These are just the first couple of looks I have created with these boots, but I already can’t wait to keep styling them with different outfits. From winter through to spring, I just know these are going to continue to be my staple sassy shoes, and that I will probably keep wearing them until they have holes in the bottom. Well, in the famous words of Nancy Sinatra, these boots are made for walkin, so that’s just what I’ll do.
