Thigh high boots were a ‘must have’ during the swinging sixties, with sultry style icons such as Brigitte Bardot (pictured below left) stepping out in theirs regularly. The 80s saw an influx of fetish looks hit the runways with diva Cher championing the trend on stage.
Louis Vuitton brought the must have thigh high boots firmly to our attention on the Autumn Winter 09/10 runways offering a variation of styles, from dazzling gold leather boots to ruched and laced numbers.
High street stores and online retailers are picking up on this look early, offering all manner of over the knee boot styles. It seems that everyone from the A-list style icon to the humble fashionista is coveting this latest footwear trend. So take note now for winter footwear trends.
