How to wear your Knee high boots

long dresses grazing 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.

style inspiration one:
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.

Shirt under dress style: Knitted cocktail dress from Gudrun & Gudrun, Stefanie Seam recycled stockings from Swedish Stockings,  Swan Print Wilson Shirt from Stella McCartney and This is Home brass bracelet from JohannaN

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.

layering knit and leather
Grunge layering: Fluid Speckle Turtleneck and Airforce Blue Crue Neck Jumper from Stella McCartney, recycled acrylic Ballet Sweater from Loup and recycled leather jacket from Pelechecoco

 

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.

Valentino fall 2016

boho
Floating boho dress style: (clockwise from top left) black fur free fur dan coat from Stella McCartney, Usha golden brass Earrings from A/BARENESS, Blakely Dress from the Reformation, Faith Dress – soon to be launched at Just Fashion (if want to know more or be on the waiting list), Harmoni Ring from Hasla, Katya Dress from the Reformation, Center: dark Green Dondini dress from Stella McCartney

 

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.

Nuff said. Come on an boot up the good way! :)

The Trench

Edun trench coat

Are you on the lookout for the perfect trench for fall?

We’ve made a selection of trenches that deliver the ultimate quality and style, but also takes people, nature and animals into consideration.

PS: We only know the details of our own designers production process, but these brands are know for consistent quality and for caring about how they make their products.

 

Marimekko Zelda Trench

Marimekko

 

Norwegian Rain Noir Femme Trench

This trench is windproof, waterproof (this one actually IS waterproof) and made out of recycled material to begin with. It’s made to last a lifetime! It is also possible to buy in a version with warm padding if you want to use it during wintertime.

“We work hard to be as environmentally friendly as possible. By teaming up with leading eco conscious suppliers in the industry, Norwegian Rain aims to amplify the positive spiral of people working together to overcome the climatical challenges we are upon”

These wool trenches are not in store yet. Follow Stella Jean for updates.

“Stella Jean collaborates with African and Haitian artisans, based on the principle of increase in value, economic impact and respect for the territory, resources and traditions of the local communities who must be supported, while at the same time preserving ancestral knowledge – at risk of extinction – and opposing the debasing effect of imperialist homogenisation” 

Stella Jean

 

 

Edun Trench

 

Edun trench coat

This trench is part of Edun’s Resort 17 collection and since they do not have their own webshop we suggest you ask them where to get it if you are interested:)

“In respect of its mission to source production and encourage trade in Africa, EDUN mixes its modern designer vision with the richness and positivity of this fast-growing continent. EDUN is building long-term, sustainable growth opportunities by supporting manufacturers, community-based initiatives and partnering with African artists and artisans”

EDUN

Lastly, if you REALLY are going to invest, we want to take the company that is the epitome of trenches into account…

 

Burberry

If you look closely, you find that some of the heritage trenches from Burberry, the classic ones that will live on forever, with details and tradition that no-one else can show for, is actually produced in England. As mentioned we do not know the details, but this should imply that the conditions are good and that there are craftsmen and educated workers involved. You can also get your initials engraved in the coat. Our favourites are..

The Kensington extra long heritage coat

burberry 4

 

This trench is as classic as it gets, still.

 

Slim fit cotton trench coat with top stitching

 

 

This trench (made in Italy) is classic but with the top stitching as a twist. Here is a total overview of all heritage trenches

 

Let us know if you want more inspiration like this. We have tons of knowledge that we want to share with you to help you do better choises ❤

Swedish Stockings

 

Some inspo on how to style your (eco-conscious) stockings !

Do the ankle boots with 40 to 60 DEN stockings

Stylist and fashion editor Hope Von Joel shows how to pull of a great feminine but laid-back fall outfit.

 

 

Dressing up

Vanja Wikstrøm, blogger at Glammom wearing a classic black dress with her stockings.

 

The wine red palette

Red is everywhere for fall and both the thin and thick variant of the black stockings, with or without pattern, works brilliantly with red. Here, travel writer, editor and founder of Frukostfolket Hanna Stefansson shows of an outfit with only red tones and black stockings.

Kind of obvious what's on my mind today (?). This @filippa_k faux fur is my new best friend✨ What's your #myfilippakwish ?

A photo posted by Hanna Stefansson (@hannastefansson) on

 

All Swedish Stockings are made using recycled nylon thread, in factories that leave no waste behind, use solar panels and energy efficient machines in the production and have full water rinsing systems, so that water can flow back into nature.

Shop Swedish Stockings here.

 

PSST. We’ve also made this search for you. We found lots of inspo here as well. Choose the good stockings, and play around with them:)

Why it’s smart to Wrap

Veryan off white organic cotton wrap dress with adjustable straps

The wrap is such a simple and transformative piece of clothing, and this season there are so many ways to style it.

 

We, off course present the good ones, produced for you personally in organic chemical free cotton, and possible to adjust and tweek if you need to. These wrap models  will last for years to come, easy to transform through changing trends and even quite easy to wear through changing body shapes.

First, which model to choose?

Choose one with broad straps

Trailing stripes taps into another trend this season. Go directly to this item.

If you don’t like it long, get it customized to a shorter model (this is a free service at our site), as seen at Christopher Raeburn Spring catwalk…

Or choose one with narrow straps

Go directly to item.

(PSST! We also got the narrow strap dress with stripes)

This one can off course also be adjusted to a shorter model, as seen at Missoni spring 16..

Choose as a top instead…

To go with your favorite pants or shorts. We deliver one with stripes and one in clean white cotton, seen below.

Like seen at Edeline Lee with classic narrow pants…

So, secondly, how to wear it? 

These pieces have, like the trend, plunging necklines and are quite low cut in front. If you don’t like showing off to much, we suggest either changing the cut when ordering yours (it’s easy and costs €21 to get a total customization of the fit, with good instructions by phone or mail), or you can use a top or statement underwear underneath. 

Here are our best styling tips for getting lots and lots of wear out of your dress!

 

 

Style tip 1: Wear something under

Keep it deep, but wear something underneath.

Inspired by the other V-necks at the catwalk, we imagined it could be a fitness body or tank top…

Tess Giberson SS16
Tess Giberson SS16

 

Or a loose strap singlet…

Ports 1961 SS16
Ports 1961 SS16

Do it the lingerie way, show off whats under, over… like seen on several catwalks this spring.. 

spread showing the loose trend
We recommend Underprotection for the best eco stylish underwear, Veryan wrap dress, double ring, fish leather clutch, moonstone earrings

Style tip 2: Wear something over

 

Style with a bomber.

Rag & Bone SS16
Rag & Bone SS16

…or a sweater

Barbara Casasola SS16

Style tip 3, Style it up

Let the jewelry do the talking.

We’ve seen lots of pearls, it fits the clean cut of a wrap perfectly, but also a statement necklace that plays on, and ads to the v-cut, works great!

Valentino SS16

Or take the top to another level with a real plunging neckline, as seen at Michael Kors….

Style tip 4: Relax in it, and be inspired by new grunge!

Wear with slightly open wrap and relaxed sandals, loafers or sneakers…

 

Rodebjer SS16

Wear it with a long sweater and flats..

Dutch Basics delivers classic jewelry, a failsafe investment that will be wearable forever! They are handmade in a small studio in Portugal.

Take a look at Dutch Basics latest collection

Idamari is a real handcrafter. Her collections are all 100 % handmade by herself, in her studio in Berlin. Ida is also our first designer using certified conflict free gold.

Look at Idamari’s collection here

Swedish Stockings have been collaborators of ours for some years now, and to follow their thorough process of becoming circular in their production is truly inspiring. If you don’t know their stockings yet, we suggest you try.

They are made out of recycled polyester (considered to be waste), made at water saving factories, with their own cleaning system, zero waste guarantee, and solar panel energy-use. It’s really impressive.

Here, green-liver Meilin Hyde shows her classic style with one of the thicker models in black.

Shop the Swedish Stockings collection here

 

5. Why only one ring?

 

abareness karuna stack rings

Wear several at once. Like with the stack rings from Abareness. There are several versions, all handmade in a small workshop in Nepal. Stack rings are brilliant for bringing new life to old rings as well. Try it!

 

6. Dare to Wear Colour

 

I wonder what he is hiding? :)

A photo posted by Hi! I am Luiza ? (@freedom_in_rainbow) on

Like Luiza. Her Instagram is also something to follow! Real colour-boost inspiration!

She wears a yellow backpack from Kokosina. Handmade for you personally after you order it, and made in their studios in Latvia or Italy. Take a look at the wide range of colours in the leather. You are bound to find your favorite here! Leather is guaranteed from livestock, where whole animal is used for food purposes.

DIY Collar

Choose flowers..

The collar is on our radar for spring and summer, so we thought we should inspire you with style-options and tell you how to make your own. To be a craftsman starts with training you know !

 

It’s in the picture

Yes, its everywhere, the elevated collar. And if it is not attached, it can elevate even more outfits. And even better if you can make it yourself.

Inspiration

There are so many versions, as seen at Carolina Herrera SS16, the simple elegant one with a stick pin….

DIY

So how to do it?

It is not difficult to make a collar yourself. The second hand shops are full of used shirts in all kinds of colours. So.. here described by Rookie, this is what you do:

How to make a DIY collar described by Rookie

1. You take an old shirt. Open it up and lay the collar down flat, like so:

How to make a DIY collar described by Rookie

  1. Using the neckline seam as a guide, take your scissors and cut as close to the collar as you can (but be careful not to snip the neckband in the process!).
How to make a DIY collar described by RookieAnd that’s it! After cutting your way through the neckline you’ll be left with one detachable collar.

How to make a DIY collar described by Rookie

 

Or even better, this video, making a collar using scraps

Now you can start being creative!

 

Where to buy one?

If you don’t want to make it yourself, take a look at Señorita Lylo’s Embroidered Collars. She only makes them on demand, contact her through her Tumblr-site. They are really beautiful and detailed.

5 Versions of the suit – (with a good conscience)

Miroslava Duma in London at fashion week wearing a stunning blue suit

 

The suit is always an investment. Not only does it work dresses up as an ensemble, but also, it is great to wear as separates, as blazer and pants with casual tops, denim, sweatpants etc. Perfect for a casual cool look.

We’ve collected some people who look both flawless and cool in their suits. Stylists, fashion insiders and creative’s with their own style, mixed up with our eco suggestions from our luxury handmade label Kerber. Masculine or feminine, their suits come in mix-and-match models to choose from, and they last a lifetime.

 

Keep scrolling to see and shop 5 looks that will elevate your wardrobe

 

Mix masculinity and femininity.

Comfy waist, cropped legs and a longer jacket. Feminine and masculine in one, elevates the feeling of effortlessness. Choose a loose singlet or t-shirt underneath to dress up or down. The keyword is loose. Like Kasia Smutniak, in a white Armani suit, with red lips and tousled hair. 

Kasia Smutniak in a white suit

 

Our feminine/masculine (conscious) suggestion:

Kerber Comfy Pants,    (1.997 NOK (no added expences)  Norway /€168 rest of the world)
Kerber Business Jacket   (2.979 NOK (no added expences) Norway, €250 rest of the world)

 

Elevate length with loose legs.

You don’t need to wear a traditional colour to look chick. Like Miroslava Duma does here in a perfect blue Stella McCartney suit, worn with a casual braid and classic white shirt.

Our loose leg suggestion:

 

Fatal Pants in Blue,    (2.099 NOK Norway / €177 rest of the world)
Business Jacket in Blue,   (2.979 NOK Norway / €250 rest of the world)

 

Never be afraid to use your femininity.

Something that always works is the feminine black suit. With narrow, cropped legs and a jacket that elevate the waist. Like Hannah Davis shows of here at a Vanity Fair party.

Hannah Davis in the classic feminine suit at a Vanity Fair party

Our feminine ensamble suggestion:

Disco Pants,   (1.971 NOK Norway / €165 rest of the world)
Stall Jacket,   (3.004 NOK Norway / €252 rest of the world)

 

Embrace the slouchy masculine laidback trousers.

Works so well with brogues or sneakers. Like Mary Orton from Memorandum shows of here, long legs, loose shirt tucked in pants

Our laidback slouchy pants suggestion:

AW15_Flatter_pants_wool_black_one_strap_v_top_forest_green_473_F_Just-Fshion kopi

Try the white shirt with high-waisted pants.

That’s enough. Style a feminine shirt with a high waisted loose pair of pants. Here shown by Clémence Poésy.
