Why wear thigh high boots on a night out
These towering boots will work wonders at boosting your self esteem and making you feel like a million dollars for your big night out.
They can deflect attention from a thigh that is chunkier than you would like, and they have the added bonus of being able to keep your legs warm – great for those Winter nights out! Thigh high boots are truly the perfect finish for your well chosen outfit.
What to wear with thigh high boots on a night out
Trousers work well with thigh high boots. You just have to make sure that they are form fitting trousers, or the width of the boots will look a little strange.
Plus, it will be hard to stuff excess fabric into the boots as if you were wearing wellies!
However, you don’t want to go too short or the outfit can end up looking a little trashy.
A skirt whose hem just brushes the top of the boots, or even covers them slightly, is great.
That being said, you don’t have to go too short – a midi skirt is a great choice, as the tops of the boots will still be visible and your legs will still benefit from the flattering coverage of the boots.
If you want to wear a long skirt, go for a loose, flowing one, or the lines of the boots will show through the fabric and look bumpy.
Dresses are a great choice with thigh high boots, as they give a feminine air to these great boots. Go for a short dress, to highlight the boots, otherwise they may get lost!
Alternatively, a longer or even a maxi dress is great – just make sure it is not figure hugging otherwise the tops of the boots will make odd lines under the fabric.
The classic little black dress will be the perfect pairing with thigh high boots, especially if the boots are a bright colour.
This is a dramatic look, that will make you feel like a million dollars! If you are wearing boots that aren’t black, try to pick out the colours of your dress to match the boots, for a really eye catching look.
To give a lovely contrast between the plainness of the boots, go for a lacy dress, or one in sheer fabric – this will really offset the effect of the boots and give your outfit an edge.
One thing to bear in mind though, is that if it is not tucked in, your top should not be long enough to reach the tops of your boots. This may give you a strange looking silhouette, as if you had no torso at all!
A deep v neck top looks stunning with thigh high boots, and you can also go for a vest top or a short sleeved tee.
Play with different lengths when wearing these boots; you can pair your boots with a short skirt and a long coat, to mix up your look and give it some real pizazz.
Blazer style jackets (here is a white one) also work really well with a pair of thigh high boots; they give an edgy look which can be taken from day to night.
Find yourself a bag that matches the colour of your boots. This is a must for any outfit, and thigh high boots are no exception! It doesn’t have to exactly match, but choosing a bag that picks out the colour of the boots is a great tip.
A cross the body bag works really well this style, as the asymmetry gives an air of something different. Apart from this, any accessories you want to wear with your boots pretty much goes! Hats, scarves, jewellery – the world of accessories is yours.
Thigh high boots are one of those daring items that can be added to your wardrobe for an extra special occasion, to make you feel sexy and sophisticated.
They can also be worn for just about any occasion, with a bit of planning, and they are definitely a staple that should be added to your everyday wear.
