For most of us, “thigh high” is not the most inviting fashion phrase ever uttered.
If you thought you’d never go this far, a top designer’s words of wisdom just might change your mind about how to approach this huge trend. Think: Parisian woman fetching coffee and croissants in 1968, not pre-makeoever Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.”
Shoe guru Stuart Weitzman gives tips for pulling off the trend.
- These boots are made for a woman who wants to be noticed. Comfort and confidence are key.
- Stick with classic colors. Brown and black work, and the less ornamentation the better.
- It is OK to show skin with the high-heel thigh high. But with the flat thigh high, it should be worn with tights, with jeans tucked inside, or with a mini skirt paired with tights.
- I would say these work best with a simple outfit. Color is certainly not forbidden, but let the thigh-high be the wow factor and the ultimate accessory.
