The Thighs Have It
Every year I fall in love with a new pair of boots and I wear them until they’ve been worn out. Could be UGGS, could be Sorels, could be a pair of fringe booties whose heel threatens to snap sideways, along with my ankle, after navigating one too many city streets…
But this year it is unequivocally this pair of Highland thigh highs from Stuart Weitzman. I’ve gone in search of the perfect over-the-knee boots for years now and somehow always come up short. Too loose, too tight, too Pretty Woman – the thigh high is a lot of look to master and yet these beauties nail it. It’s the perfect heel height to wear for both day and night looks, and the leather bow detail in the back makes these both sexy and sweet. They come in a slew of colors too, so you can go basic in black, sophisticated in gray, or dip into these Bordeaux suede beauties.
One thing I should mention – like most thigh highs, they can be a little temperamental to take off. Thankfully, I don’t want to.
