Fly High with Thigh High Boots 2015

Thigh high boots for women are notoriously known for their sex appeal which is why it is understandable that it could be quite intimidating to even try this style of boot but when done correctly, this look can have incredible pay off.  With the months cooling down, here are three ways you can fly high with thigh highs!

Get Tied Up: Lace Up Thigh High Boots

If leather thigh high boots are a tad on the overdone side for you, and you are just waiting to dive into your next fashion expedition- lace up thigh high boots are calling your name. Although the boot length is already sexy enough, and the lace up design amplifies the sultry vibe even more- believe it or not, there is a way to tame and balance this look down! The secret lies in wearing a fuller bottom silhouette. A circle skirt or a fuller figured dress would definitely do the trick!

Boxy Yet Foxy: Oversized Tops

Under usual circumstances, recommending a boxy top for a sexy outfit sounds strange- but trust us, a boxy top will do nothing but balance out your outfit and let your suede thigh high boots do all the talking!  To pull this look off, opt for a chunky knit sweater in neutral tones. The idea behind this look is that less is definitely more. Neutrals allow for more room to stack on those fall time favorite accessories. To ensure that you don’t feel like you are a walking potato sack, you can definitely pair skin tight thigh high boots with body con skirts for women, dark skinny jeans, jeggings, leggings, or just plain old tights! Wearing bottoms and thigh highs that are the same color will create an illusion of insanely long legs!

Caught in the Trenches: Trench Coats with Thigh High Boots

One of the hottest trends of the season has definitely got to be the trench coat! This classic style has made a huge comeback with a few modern modifications making it a refreshing component of trendy women’s outerwear. Of course there is always the classic khaki trench but with unpredictable weather, a cardigan meets trench fusion might be exactly what you need. The light material makes an optimal daytime option when thinking about wearing thigh highs. However, though light, the length still provides enough coverage for a night time look. With the same idea in mind behind the boxy top outfit, this outfit is all about balance! The length of an oversized trench coat allows for you to get away with short shorts, a mini skirt or even a skort!

Style tip: Keep hair and makeup minimal to keep the spotlight on your uber cute boots! Try air dried hair with a bit of texturizing spray to get a beachy feel  or even wave enhancing mousse for our straight haired girls!

It’s comeback season- and the 70s trend is in the lead! It is very well known that the 70s are back with a full vengeance. Silhouettes like flared bottoms, and textures like our favorite- suede have made a huge comeback in 2015! But what we haven’t heard enough of are 70s prints! They’ve subtly crept into the fashion scene but have made a huge splash. If you are looking for trendy clothes for women, patterns are a great place to start! Nothing says trendsetter more than bold and daring patterns! Even if bold and daring isn’t your thing, the subtle flower child patterns of the 70s could be your cup of tea.

Bold and Daring

The psychedelic patterns of the 70s didn’t emerge out of nowhere! Here is a quick little rundown on one of the most iconic patterns to date! This favorite trend was not only an artistic reflection of the changing culture at the time but a way to rebel against consumerism. The unconventional intense color palette and abstract patterns were ways in which people of the time were able to make a statement and voice their opinions on politics and the ever changing culture. For our adventurous fashionistas, who are not afraid of brights and flashy patterns, rock the 70s trend wearing nothing other than psychedelic printed dresses! Balance out the look with white leatherette platform sandals.

Feminine Subtlety

On the other side of the spectrum, we have the soft florals of the 70s. This look is so easy to recreate as the gentle colors of the palette almost act as a neutral. So with this trend, anything pretty much goes! Retro floral prints were usually paired with head scarves, groovy shades but today, you can throw in some modern pieces to contrast this nostalgic look and really make it your own! For instance, pair your florals with grunge inspired platform shoes for an edgy meets retro ensemble. Alternatively, go for a western inspired vibe by pairing your feminine frock with boho fringe boots for a bohemian yet girly attire.

Carefree Spirit

To truly embody the carefree spirit of the 70s, opt for paisley or tribal prints! The new attraction to exotic and foreign influences brought the paisley print into popularity. With its’ historical musical ties to rock n’ roll this print is perfect for those who are wild and free! Get your print on with loose paisley palazzo pants and a fitted crop top. Alternatively, if paisley is not your thing, go for the more versatile tribal-geometric patterns! This was all the rage in the 70s as previously mentioned due to the fascination with exotic and foreign culture. If you’re wondering how to add a fresh twist to tribal prints, pair your tribal inspired look with d’orsay flats. The lace up detailing and sleek pointed silhouette adds a subtle sexiness to your vintage vibe!
