Style Inspiration: Midi Skirts & Knee Boots

by

KNEE BOOTS HAVE BEEN RELEGATED TO THE BACKEND OF TRENDS, for it is the ankle boot in all its iterations — from the suede Isabel Marant version, to sleek patent leather white sock boots — that has featured in every season’s catwalks as the must-have piece for the winter season. And yet, the knee boot — hitherto a classic or an accessory for officewear and mid-aged mothers, you be the judge — returns for this season, paired with midi skirts and dresses. As a typical cyclical trend, it has matured beyond the aughts, when it used to be paired exclusively with skinny denim jeans and a tank top. For autumn, choose a sturdy leather and a boxy shape that hits just below the kneecaps, and pair with any dress or skirt that covers the top. The result? A streamlined silhouette that manages to combine style and comfort. — Victoria

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.

  • This is a timeless look. Some of the shots look like they’re straight out of the ’70s, while others (with the flowing skirts) bring back the ’90s.
