Thigh-high boots

Invest in thigh-high boots whether in suede or leather, says ELLE’s fashion editor, Asanda Sizani. “Thigh-high boots are an all-season accessory and, with proper styling, can work for various occasions, both during the day or at night,” she says.

As daywear, pair your boots with shorts, stockings and a cute cardigan, or go for jeans and a cute, relaxed top. At night, turn up the heat by wearing them with a fitted mini skirt or metallic dress.

These boots are also available as flats, so go for the option you’re likely to wear the most.
