Knee Highs

I have been loving the idea of bring in knee high elements into spring this year.
Throughout the change from freezing cold to bearable I have noticed that the trend of knee highs which has been creeping in revently would be great for this time of year.
The height of these style shoes on the leg allows for you to wear a dress, with tights if it is still rather cold and still keep your legs warm and not expose them fully to the elements (especially if you are a resident in England like I am, the likelihood of you needing warmth is high).
The dress and knee high boots look is a great one in itself, it is a two step way to master effortless style, paired with a long coat or perhaps a leather jacket and you have a completed look, in only three items.
Simple and Stylish, its the best way.

Due to knee highs coming into fashion and gaining popularity so quickly, they are easily attainable on the high street, anywhere from New Look, to River Island to Topshop are stocking them on the high street, and are even more easily available online, with ASOS having a wide range from different designers. You can either invest in a pair you know will last and pay that extra amount of money if you know that you will be one to get a lot of use out of them, or you can do what I would most likely do. I would admit to myself that I would not wear them enough to justify a leather or suede pair and just get a simple pair of knee highs for when I am in the mood to pull the look off.

For those of you who want to carry off recent trends without coming across as girly girly I think that this one is an excellent one for you. The over the knee element adds an 'edgy' feel to the look you would choose to add them to, whether that be a more girly dress or perhaps a big chunky knit dress (my personal choice!).



I used burgundy accessories as I just thought that burgundy is the most amazing colour for the beginning and end of winter.
The coat matching both the bag and the lipstick is such an easy way to add in elements of colour without it taking over your entire outfit, an issue which I have.
Listed below are the items I used to create this look!
