TREND REPORT: OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

It’s officially sweater season! Although admittedly, the weather in Malta is still pretty warm, but nothing like being prepared, right?

This season, we’ll be slipping into boots that go to infinity and beyond, as the knee-high or over-the-knee boot is back on trend – from the runway to the high streets, and it’s definitely becoming a big winter staple.

Everyone from Rihanna to Miranda Kerr to Gigi Hadid has been spotted wearing the statement-making boot, so it’s therefore a must-have this season. These A-listers always aim to stand out, and when it comes to over-the-knee boots, we definitely understand the allure.

However, over the years, the knee boots have been associated with vulgarity. Perhaps Pretty Woman (1990) should be to blame for this. That’s why it’s crucial to properly wear this trend, as this’ll be the only way to bring the right amount of chic as well as an elegant richness to your look.

The go-to shoe of the season comes in leather, suede and velvet. You should keep in mind that it’s important for the boots to come in a leg-hugging flattering fit. Otherwise, there’s a risk of them visually adding some extra weight.

It’s crucial to stay away from tight dresses and figure-hugging silhouettes when dressing them up. The safest way to look chic is to choose suede boots in lighter shades like camel or grey, and team them up with an oversized, cosy sweater dress for a relaxed vibe.

If you want an easy pair in the upcoming cold season, you can wear them with a mini dress, a leather biker jacket and a fedora for an on-trend finish and go. If you’re a jeans-and-tee kind of girl, yet still want to make a bit of a statement, these boots will certainly help you. Choose skinny jeans and complete them with the ultimate winter season fashion essential. Upgrade your boot game; it’s a trend we can all get behind.
