With summer coming to a close and the evenings getting darker, the necessity for flip-flops and open toe’s sandals is no more. Fortunately for us with the loss of easy slide on footwear comes the gain of show-stopping shoes and winter boots.

The only ‘bright’ side to the darkening days is that our simple summer outfits (as cute as they were), can be revolutionised into chic and fashion-week worthy outfits.

Shoespirtaion is a very real thing. I mean there is no point in rattling your brain, planning and putting together an outfit without having the key component and finishing touch; the shoes. A good outfit can be giving up on if you don’t have the right footwear. 

Check out my top thigh high’s from River Island.

Not ready to give up on your floral obsession just yet? Well you don’t have to, If there’s any way to keep the floral pattern alive all through Autumn/Winter, it’s with these floral thigh high boots.

A black, mini, long-sleeved skater dress paired with these is the ultimate combo. It’s not too much pattern if you keep the rest of the look toned down and simple.

If there was ever boots made for talking it’s these hot red thigh high’s. I want a pair. I need a pair. I must have these!If you’re looking for a way to style these, there are so many! Long dresses, short skirts, and pants. The thighs have no limit!

But if you are in need of a little outfit inspiration, why not keep your summer wardrobe out from the back of closet and grab a floral or patterned dress to the knee. Pair with a short biker jacket and your autumn handbag.

If you’re looking for more ‘girl’s night out’ vibes, then a black bodysuit and you’re River Island black high-waist jeans. You can’t get any sexier! Can you?

Dare to be different. Be bold, be brave, and be blue in these vestments inspired boots. A rock chic element along with serious class in a pair of boots. Being able to pull these off is the tricky part, however.

Don’t doubt yourself just yet. I’m feeling all kinds of emotions with these boots and surprisingly blue isn’t one of them!

Style them with a mini skirt and slogan tee or stick on your denim Levi jeans and a long draping jacket. Then get to fashion week and be spotted for being an ultimate style icon!
