Just a simple OOTD post today Londonistas, since it was either that or posting photos from the cross dressing party.. and I have no real reason to want to scar any of you for the rest of your lives, so I thought it best not to.
I thought I’d do a post focusing on how to make over the knee boots (OTKB’s) look classy as opposed to looking like you’re ready to walk a street corner. A few of my friends have mentioned to me that they are hesitant to buy OTKB’s since they’re not sure how to wear them on a day to day basis. With boots of that length, I think it really comes down to the details. If you’re going to get them in leather then aim to get ones that are slightly slouchy in their fit as apposed to extremely fitted ones. Go for a rounded or square toe instead of a pointed toe so that you don’t end up looking like you’re auditioning for a role as the Wicked Witch of the West. Oh and for the love of Batman don’t ever buy patent leather boots unless you are Julia Roberts’ body double in Pretty Woman.
These particular boots I found in none other than a Topshop outlet store for a mere £25. I absolutely adore them.. the fit, the size of the heel, the material and above all how comfortable they are. I often get complimented on how good they look and no one believes me when I tell them how much I bought them for!
A big thank you to Matt Brajlih for taking these photos!
I teamed my boots up with a white shirt, a black jersey blazer and a beautiful printed scarf (worn as a bow) from UAE luxury brand Jahaanara. I added a splash of colour by wearing denim and obviously had to carry the Chanel to finish it off.
So, did I manage to win you over? Classy or Trashy?
Thanks for reading!
Until the next post Londonistas!
