How to wear your Knee high boots

If you are anything like us, you love playing around with style, and wear some key pieces in many ways. So if you should invest in a pair of fairly produced high quality boots, you would need some style options to get the most out of them. Here are our style suggestions. One pair – million wears. At least!

 

Scroll through the gallery below for styling inspiration on how to wear you boots and where to get good luxe pieces to go with them.
And remember, all designers we mention who are not part of Just Fashion are to us known for consistent quality and care for how they make their products. Therefore the following style suggestions should be good for the planet, though we can only count for the details of our own designers.

 

Classic knee-highs

These are the boots.

Made by hand in Portugal, in a small family owned factory. It is in fact so small that half of Amorina&Mia’s collection is Made to Order (produced after ordering).

Not an easy-fast way of doing things, but a really environmental one.

Style 1.

Like a woman.

Wear with short dresses or skirts.

This is a fail-safe way of adding a grungy tough to femininity. We feel that short skirt and dresses can be too pretty sometimes. In the second we add a pair of flat boots, we feel grounded.

Skirtstyle: Anemone Pleated skirt from Rakha, architectural gold earrings from Hasla, Nina fishleater Pouch  from Eben, Manzanillo Knit from Hekne and Amanda Control top recycled stockings from Swedish Stockings

 

Wear with a dress over shirt-combo.

Keep the dress knitted or woolly, and add a feminine lightweight shirt. This style, if dress is not to short, will also work really well for the office.

Style 2.

Layering wool the grungy way.

Wear with long oversized coats.

It’s slouchy and cool. Layer fine knits underneath; add a belt or several jewelries in different lengths.

Style 3.

Inspired by the past.

 

Wear with a billowing flower dress.

On top, wear a short shearling or wool jacket. It’s easy to tweak to a 70’s look, but is also channeling the femi-grunge of the 90’s with a shorter dress and stockings. Change out the shoulder strap with an old guitar strap, and you are ready to go.

Wear with long narrower skirt or dress grazing or covering your boots.

This look is buttoned up from heel to toe, with a long skirt and long coat or with a cropped sweater or jacket that emphasizes your waist. It has a hint of the 60’s and the 70’s, but is still a modern take on a boots /skirt look.
