I have a love/hate relationship with thigh high boots. I love their sexy and tough vibe and the fact that they provide extra warmth and additional coverage for our legs. But being a petite (I’m only 5’1 ft), I didn’t think I could pull them off. After a few weeks of trying, now I don’t want to take mine off! I even use my Mary Jane pump and thigh-high socks to create the similar look when it’s too hot to wear boots.

Here are my four main considerations for hunting and styling thigh high boots: Buy suede ones instead of leather, since suede has a matte finish which can slim our legs; The perfect pair should fit like a glove, not too tight, not too loose, especially around the ankle area; When wearing them with skirts or shorts, make sure there are a few inches between the hemline and the top of your boots; Finally, balance the sexiness of a thigh high boot with some masculine touches, like the menswear-inspired coat and newsboy cap showed on the models above.

In Chinese:大腿靴性感又保暖,但我却既爱又恨,因为我个子比较小,总觉得这种靴型会切断腿形。但进入秋季后尝试着穿搭了几周,发现只要在选购和搭配时注意一些小细节和小技巧,娇小的女孩也可以穿,不但不会破坏线条,还会拉长腿型。

首先在选择时,我发现麂皮更能修饰腿型,因为相比有光泽的牛皮,麂皮吸光的特性使腿部看起来更收缩;其次在试穿时,不能太松或太紧,尤其不能盖住脚踝本身的线条;最后,在搭配时,尤其是配裙子或短裤时,要露出一些皮肤,裙子或短裤的边不能盖住靴子的上缘,因为视线会停留在靴筒的高度,视觉上靴筒盖住的地方好像都是小腿的长度,无形中就大大拉长了腿型。另外搭配时可以用这一季最流行的男孩风的单品去中和大腿靴太过女人味的感觉,比如在超模Rosie Huntington-Whiteley和Miranda Kerr身上看到的男士大衣和报童帽等。天气不太冷时,也可以用高跟鞋大腿袜打造一个类似大腿靴的性感又可爱的造型!

Work-wear in origin, denim has been a fashion symbol for decades. Classic staples worth notice and repeat (as you can see here, here & here). Today let’s share two more stylish looks, see how the utilitarian and versatility make denim a non-fail choice whether you want to team with avant-garde pieces for a fashionable look or wear with other basics for an understated outfit.

The printed skinny jeans that Anja Rubik wearing (below) combines several hot trends this season: black and white stripes, checks and botanical pattern. If you are not ready to wear a strong piece like that, this pair from Theyskens’ Theory is a great alternative: with the psychedelic print which is another trend now, it’s equally stylish, easier to pull off and wallet-friendly!

For loud bottoms like that, casual, easy denim shirt or jacket is great choice to pair with. Add a simple basic pump, you are ready to go. For chilly days, top it off with a black coat like this one, the faux leather sleeves echo the overall edgy chic vibe. This grey Loeffler Randall bag is my current favorite, it will instantly add an understated urban chic touch.

For a laid-back, shabby chic look, distressed denim pieces are ideal. They are great to toughen up delicate pieces like a chiffon floral top, add edginess to other basics as Alexa Chung did below. When the color palette is simple, I like to add details, like the matte gold hardware on this “school girl” bag and the subtle glitter heel on this affordable booties. A delicate bar necklace adds a hint of sophistication.
