Streetstyle Stars On How To Rock Knee And Thigh-High Boots

These are the boots that'll keep you warm and stylish.
#1: A more formal vibe
If you’re looking to wear a pair of boots in a more formal manner – for a business trip, for example – a good idea is to pair the boots with classic, presentable pieces. A knit grey sweater and structured beige coat can never go wrong. Pay attention to length: a skirt that reaches just above the knees goes well with knee-high boots, as showing that sliver of skin keeps you from looking too overwhelmed. Wool-blend coat, $249, H&M
Cotton-blend skirt, $45.90, Mango
Rochas leather boots, US$1,185 (S$1,584), www.modaoperandi.com
#2: Over jeans
If you are on holiday, there will be lots of exploring and walking to do, so comfort is key. And what’s more comfortable than a good ol’ pair of jeans? Match it with a pair of thigh-high, patent leather boots, and stay trendy and warm with a stylish military cap and faux-fur coat. Cotton cap, $29.90, Stradivarius
Denim jeans, $45.90, Pull & Bear
Ganni leather boots, $556, www.farfetch.com
#3: With hot pants
If you’re not that afraid of the cold (or just want to show off your gams), a pair of thigh-high boots can look very good worn with a pair of super short shorts. However, make sure you don’t freeze to death by donning a snuggly, thick coat that you can cover your thighs with when the temperature drops. Cotton trench coat, $119, Zara
Viscose-blend shorts, $35.90, Bershka
Fabric boots, $116, Dorothy Perkins
#4: Shine bright like a diamond
Ready to party the night away? Grab a pair of shiny boots – preferably one in a head-turning shade like bold red – and wear it with an equally stunning dress. We suggest anything that is metallic or made of sequins, and don’t forget a statement bag or clutch to complete the look. Cotton-blend dress with sequins, $159, Topshop
Leather crossbody bag, $225, Massimo Dutti
Off-White satin and PVC boots, US$1,772 (S$2,368), www.net-a-porter.com
#5: The classic
If you’re looking around for your first pair, we suggest going with a classic and timeless black version, which you can wear with endless things. Viscose-blend jersey dress, $34.95, H&M
Acrylic scarf, $26.90, Dorothy Perkins
Textile boots, $116, Topshop
#6: Colour coordinate
For a truly outstanding look, go matchy-matchy and colour coordinate your boots with your outfit. They don’t have to be all monotonous – for example, you can wear boots that has a delIcate and subtle coloured pattern as above, and wear a dress alongside a bag in the same shade.
