I’m often asked what is a “must have” in my Winter wardrobe.
For me it would definitely have to be a pair of boots. I love both the ankle and the knee high boots.
The ankle boot suits most body shapes but if you are short just take care – you’ll need to match the colour of your boots with your pants or leggings . Avoid contrast as it will make you appear shorter and wider. They look best with Boyfriend jeans, light coloured skinny jeans, printed tights and a mid-length skirt. My favourite look is a tan coloured ankle boot teamed with a printed dress and a denim jacket – it’s a great trans- seasonal outfit.
Calf length boots look best on long lanky legs as they add volume to the calves. If you have large calf muscles make sure you avoid this style. They look best with shorts, a mini skirt, or an above the knee flowing skirt or dress.
Knee highs look great on the curvy girls with a knee length dress as they make the leg appear longer and slimmer. They look best with skinny legged jeans, tights and knee length dresses straight or flared. Avoid light coloured jeans and dark coloured knee high boots. My favourite casual look is a pair of black Ponte pants , a white shirt, a bright coloured cropped jumper teamed with a leather jacket and my pointy toed knee highs.
One of the latest trends is the “Thigh high boots”. If you’re tall and thin and you want that edgy look give them a go. The short girls will look even shorter and the curvy girls will appear larger. They look best with skinny legged jeans, shorts, a short skirt or a pair of tights.
