Keep Clothing Choices Basic
Clothing should never detract from the stylistic elements of your thigh-high boots. Leggings in solid hues, a long boyfriend styled blazer, oversized sweaters, fitted jeans or a flirty skirt are a sampling of pieces that can help to play up, the appearance of your boots. If you opt to sport a fairly short dress or skirt during the fall or winter seasons — the most practical option is to incorporate a complementary hue of opaque tights into the outfit. The tights will help tone everything down in a fashionable manner, while also keeping you comfortable in chill weather.
