So summer is good and all but Autumn is where my wardrobe SHINES. I’m all over the knits, coats and boots. It’s the perfect combination of cool temperatures but also warm enough to have your legs out. Before winter kicks in and the only skin on show is my face, can anyone else relate?
The best Autumnal purchase I have ever made is my thigh high boots, they can turn a normal outfit into chic so quickly. But not only do they look great, they keep your legs warm and you don’t need to shave them when you want to wear a skirt or a dress, I’m gonna call that a win win!
The boots featured in this blog were purchased from H&M a few years ago and they are still going strong. They don’t have to be expensive and can definitely be found on a budget. Personally I prefer them with a little heel but there are plenty of flats that look chic too.
They are such a versatile shoe and I could have put endless outfits in this post but I’ll stick to seven main styles!
1. T-shirt and dress combo
The dress and t-shirt combo is very in right now and when you add the thigh highs it dresses it up a little but not too much. Although if you wanted to really dress it up you could simply remove the t-shirt and add a stylish jacket.
2. Blazer dress
This is one of my favourite purchases that gets brought out every year. It’s so simple yet looks so classy. Also, if it was a little on the colder side you could wear a pair of patterned tights with it. You can easily dress this look up and down by adding a t-shirt underneath or keeping it as a bralette.
3. Knit and skirt
This is one of my favourite Autumn looks! I love a knit with a skirt, especially one with exaggerated arms, I think it looks so chic. I also can’t say no to a turtleneck, they are so timeless and cosy.
4. Knitted dress
You can’t go wrong with a knitted dress especially a turtleneck, I like them can you tell? This with a lovely long coat is such a vibe and a great day outfit! This can be worn with or without a belt and possible even a lovely hat like a fedora. Very Autumn chic!
5. Blazer and leggings
Now for the days you don’t want to get the legs out! Chuck on a pair of wet look or faux leather leggings, a bodysuit and an oversized blazer and you’ve got yourself a look. I love this dogtooth blazer and it’s just the right thickness to keep me warm without layers.
6. Jeans and a shirt
This is such an easy and go to look for during the day or at night. I think thigh highs and a blue jean is such a statement look, then add a white loose shirt and it’s casual yet classy. Another one for the cooler nights where you don’t want the bare legs out!
7. Oversized blazer and cycling shorts
This look came into fashion last year I think and I wasn’t sure on it but I’ve decided I’m all here for it. I bought this blazer during lockdown and it’s honestly one of the best things I’ve ever bought. This brings together casual and dressed up very nicely in my eyes. Then add a headscarf and you have got yourself a good look.
So there you have it, seven ways to easily style some thigh boots this Autumn!
