Thigh high boots were everywhere on the catwalks of the different Fashion Weeks, the most recent being Givenchy at PFW (pictured) It may have been presented for SS15 but its definitely a trend to watch for the Autumn and Winter months too. Perfect for keeping you lovely and cosy whilst also keeping you uber stylish, which lets face it is the most important aspect! A good friend of mine also pointed out that thigh high boots also made a regular appearance on one of my favourite shows; Gossip Girl! Ms SVW loved a good thigh high boot and lets be honest, if its good enough for one of the most stylish fictional characters on television, then it is certainly good enough for me.
They may not seem like the easiest style to pull off however they are surprisingly flattering provided you choose the correct style and length. Perfect for emphasizing your legs,another key trend highlighted by Tom Ford at London Fashion Week. Thigh highs will elongate your legs, guaranteed to leave even the shortest girls with enviable pins!
Top Tip: shorter girls (like myself) don’t wear the boots too far up your leg as it will make your thighs look shorter…nobody wants this!

As my last few posts have been all about Fashion Week, I thought today’s post should be dedicated to the stars who graced these shows and looked flawless. From SJP to Olivia Palermo, of course the Frow was as stylish as the pieces being modelled down the catwalk.
Attending the Calvin Klein Spring 2015 show, Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted rocking this statement blue coat, a possible ode to the upcoming tailored trend. Of course SJP would have to put her own twist on this trend and opt for such a striking colour; something only she could pull off. It’s very Ms. Bradshaw and perfectly suitable for the streets of New York.
Attending the Desigual show during New York Fashion Week, Olivia Palermo looked exquisite as always in one of Desiqual’s designs. Always one to opt for something a little different and lot more fabulous, she looked completely unique and beautiful. I’m loving the cute and chic hair she chose for her look along with the clashing clutch.
One Fashion Week is clearly not enough for this style icon. Ms. Palermo effectively hopped the pond to the London shows and managed to remain equally as stylish as the previous week. She chose to go head to toe in Burberry Prorsum FW14 in a ombre lace dress, co-ordinated with a chic belted scarf to complete her look. That hair is also phenomenal! Leather on Leather was also a look she used, more than likely to keep warm in the less than fantastic London weather. She still manages to make double leather look ladylike and sophisticated, something that is not an easy task.
Two of the ultimate style icons today, completely knocked it out of the park with their Fashion Week styles. I don’t think either ever seem to put a foot wrong when it comes to selecting outfits and act as perfect inspiration for my next shopping haul.
Hope you enjoyed ladies
