Blue and muted green-blue color are huge color trend this year. Here, Miranda Kerr combined two different shades of blue and spiced them up with wild leopard print. I love how the youthful innocent denim ruffle was juxtaposed against sexy thigh-highs and semi-sheer blouse.

In Chinese: 蓝色是2014的主打色,各种色调的蓝让这个普通得几乎被我们遗忘的颜色变得前所未有的丰富。今天所选的这个造型里,超模米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)就把深浅两种不同的蓝色组合起来,用豹纹给整身造型增加亮点和趣味。这条靛蓝的荷叶边牛仔裙融合了本季的多个流行元素,是值得投资的大热单品。荷叶边和牛仔特有的年轻无邪和性感的大腿靴豹纹冲突也很吸引人。

How Petites Rock Thigh-high Boots

With a small frame, it really took me a long time to wrap my head around the notion of thigh high boots. After trying out a few, I found that it’s all about the right fit: it has to be slimming from the ankle to the thigh area. About the length, those end below the mid thigh are more flattering and proportional to my frame. When it comes to styling, pair them with casual Tees or girly flare skirts/dresses to keep them from looking too sexy.

In Chinese: 我本身也是矮个儿一族,所以对于大热的大腿靴也是犹豫了很长时间才决定挑战看看。试了几次之后发现只要选对款式,娇小女孩完全可以穿,关键在于靴筒要从脚踝开始就非常服帖,一直到大腿的部分都要合,才会显得腿更纤细修长。长度的话最好在膝盖上三寸左右,不要过高。日常穿搭时配上休闲的条纹T恤、针织衫或女孩风的伞裙来平衡大腿靴的性感。

Thigh High Boots: Two Ways

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!
