Thigh Highs & Bare Shoulders

Thigh High Boots + Off the Shoulder Top + Choker = One Perfect Fall Outfit

I’m already predicting that these thigh high boots will be everywhere this fall and winter. My boyfriend surprised me with Kanye West tickets about a month ago, and I made the quick decision to take advantage of my Amazon Prime account and ordered a pair of thigh highs. I swear, Prime was made for moments like these… that two-day shipping is unbeatable. I wore my black suede boots with a grunge “Pablo” oversized T-shirt. Needless to say, I felt very Kardashian-esque in the audience, so, mission accomplished!

This style of boot is starting to flood the streets and internet and I couldn’t be happier. I wanted to find a pair at a reasonable price (college budget, duh) and these boots are just as cute as the $800 Stuart Weitzman pair!  The slim, sock-like fit is so flattering and the length compliments anything from leggings and black jeans, to mini skirts and oversized sweaters. Depending on how you style them, over-the-knee boots can make a bold statement while being sexy, chic, and sophisticated. It’s truly the little details that make the biggest impact.

I have a rehearsal dinner coming up next weekend, which is clearly a totally different occasion to wear my new boots to. My go-to color is black for more formal occasions, which explains the boots, skinny jeans and choker. But, I wanted to add a fall hue. Yellow is dominating in the color game this year. I know, what an unexpected color, but it’s really catching my eye this season and I’m loving it. I found this off the shoulder, ruffled top on shopakira.com. I’m obsessed. It’s super comfortable and gathers at the waist, showing some shape and contrast.

The over-the-knee boots dress up my outfit, but I also really enjoy styling this top with a distressed jean jacket and black booties for a daytime look.  See, like I said, it’s all in the details. Little changes like this go a long way in transforming an outfit.
