LKISObsession: On Virgin Radio, Going Thigh-High


My next post on Virgin Radio is up: 

Today I am chatting about my favourite Fall thigh-high boots AND how to wear the trend! 

I am posting it here for your convenience!: 

I love Fall.

It’s time to go rifling through your closet and pull out your heavy peices, your fuzzy things, your thick-knit sweaters and of course…your boots. Yesterday, I was busy making the switch from cotton to leather and feather-weight to leather. And, of course, I pulled out my favourite boots.

It just so happens that the trend this season is thigh-high, and I happen to have a few pairs of over-the-knees that are perfect.

Don’t have any thigh-high boots buried in the back of your closet? Not to worry! This trend is easily found at all your favourite stores in a variety of styles.

Here are a few of my personal faves for Fall:

My absolute ultimate favourite is this boot from Ferragamo that just adds a bit of sexy with that mid-foot cutout.

A great way to sport the trend without feeling like Pretty Woman, is to go with over-the-knee but flat. These Maison Martin Margiela boots are also embracing this season’s menswear inspired look without a chunkier sole.

A classic flat over-the-knee boot is Stuart Weitzman’s 50/50, which is actually having its 20th anniversary this year and so it comes in an array of fabulous colours or you can always go with the classic black (they are amazingly comfortable, too).

If you want to lessen the vampy-ness of the thigh-high boot, go for lighter colours like these kicks from Casadei.

And, you can always count on JC (Jeffrey Campbell) for some wackadoodle versions of the seasons’ trends. Check out these lace-ups:

And, these spacey, crazy, kinda’ mind blowing boots:

These thigh-highs from Aldo are sort of a mix of shoe and boot.

And, my personal favourites (and the ones I will be sporting all Fall-long) are the Lodense boots from Call It Spring.

Check out how I wore the Lodense boots last year at a Call It Spring event in London:

What is best way to wear this trend? It’s all about balance.

I would say combine either covered up or looser garments when sporting these bad boys:

– Try it with a babydoll dress;

– Try a flared skirt and a rock’n roll T-shirt;

– Try with a pair of shorts and a bulky knit sweater;

– Try it with leggings and an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt;

– Try it with your jeans tucked in and a body-hugging turtleneck.

Promise you will be strutting your stuff,
