Thigh-high boots are one of those pieces that can be intimidating and tricky to style. Tucking them into pants isn't always the best option (especially if the boots are skin-tight), but wearing them with a skirt or a dress can easily go into "Pretty Woman"-territory.
However, Emily Ratajkowski managed to make the thigh-high boot look sexy, stylish and classy at the same time during the London photocall for "We Are Your Friends." How, you ask?
Let's take a minute to dissect the look:
1. Fabric choice: The 24-year-old model and actress opted for a suede boot, which gives a much more polished look than leather or pleather.
2. Dress: Though simple, Emily's mod-inspired Zimmerman frock is anything but boring. The long-sleeves and turtleneck gives off a more demure vibe, but the cuffs, faux pockets and subtle shoulder ruffles keep things interesting. Also, that hue is the perfect contrast to the black boots.
3. Hemline: The hemline of the frock hits the perfect spot -- long enough to keep things modest, but short enough to show that hint of leg in between the dress and the boots.
And voila! A lesson in wearing thigh-high boots, courtesy of Emily Ratajkowski.
