Over The Knee Boots

Todays post is on the new trend we have notice around whilst shopping on the streets of London.

With the cold weather it makes perfect sense as to why Boots are a favourite by Londoners, New Yorkers and any other could climate city members at the moment.

Here are some inspirational ways to showcase your knee high boots.

1) Gorgeous knee highs with  a dress works superbly well, Combo with tights a large bag and an easy breezy dress.

2) Thigh high boots alongside a soft pastal skirt – an awesome mix.

The hard part about the knee high boots is that it can be rather ‘Pretty Woman’

So keeping the colours fresh, high neck jumper is perfect.

3) All black everything! Tights, jackets, and a skater skirt.

Toned down with the black tights, less skin immediately makes this Pretty woman.

4) Every woman’s favourite- a good pair of jeans- spruce up your outfit with thigh high boots

The mother of two Jennifer Lopez waved at photographers as she entered the American Idol set in a bright green- (and I mean Kermit the frog Green)- outfit.

Showcasing her strong abs and fresh blown out hair she looks happy as she attends her judging role.

The Jacket she has zipped up and accessories with two large rings and a bracelet. A very simple look that can be achieved by anyone.

The Christian Louboutin booties are named Mrs Boulglione if you want to get your self a pair. They really are quite sexy!

So its finally here… winter..blah! I m not a winter wonderland girl, I am more of a super summer chic..happy go lucky.. less (clothing) is more! and winter doesn’t really allow you to adopt that motto unless you live in LA.

London is more of a layers thick coat, balaclava and multi layering of gloves! so with that said this post brings us nicely onto the mother of the moment Kim Kardashian with her latest accessory (The baby) and her knee height brown boots.

On closer inspection we found these to be a Phillip Lim brown £875.00 leather back strap boot.

She choose to comfortably wear the boots with jeans but knee highs work especially well with leggings.. I would say stay away from mini skirts as you’ll probably look a bit like you have been taken from the Pretty woman set! That’s not a good look during the day! or outside ANYTIME. (KK

any of my followers out there know which designer created these
And also I would like to ask
Do you find them quirky and cool or funny looking and bad?!

Happy New Year all you wonderful Sharp N Chic readers, we are back this year and with vengeance, reading the emails we have been getting asking for more stories and celeb fashion we can’t refuse. So January its here and so are we! so lets get started!!


Winter Boots

So its currently about 12 degrees in London which is not too bad, you can leave the house and be ok with a light jacket if it stays like this for the remainder of winter we will be happy however if the weather is to take a turn for the worst like most years when Feb comes round then we have the shoes for you to get through the cold snow weather.

These boots are about keeping warm, staying safe and looking cute!

Lets go..

The Coach Frye harness boot.

winter boots by coach fur

The coach boot is exceptional luxury but with the fur trim it will be sure to leave your toes warm and comfy in the coldest parts of the world, as well as a low heel and rugged sole the boot will protect you from slipping on ice when walking from the car to the shops!

coach fur coyote boots

The limited edition boot captures the iconic Frye Harness boot with warmth and home comfort of soft coyote furr and pure leather on the boot.

We like these boots as we do like a bit of fur especially when it gets really cold out, it always looks really cute and snow bunny-esk! an

Plus the ruggedness of the boot keeps it contemporary and hard! Whenever I wear my boots I always feel slightly untouchable as I walk the streets of London, a certain confidence and air just overwhelms me as I stomp around so you have got to love a rugged boot!

The boot can be purchased from the store Coach for £1,300 / $1,800 


Tivoli by Sorel

geek chic warm boot

A bit of Geek Chic with these babies!

Boots at the calf are cool for running errands so are great if your out and about, these in particular are fab as they have a fleece fur inside so your feet will feel as though they are surrounded by sheep on any cold snowy day. Further more if the heavens do decide to open the rain will not leave your feet wet either! Warm feet warm heart! and in these Tivoli’s by Sorel your feet will certainly remain warm dry and in fashion!

They are lightweight and sleek with 100g of insulation protecting you from the cold weather they can be purchased directly from the site found here  at £155.00 the boots provide a great mix of fashion, coolness, warmth and a very healthy price!

Ugg Australia

sand ugg boot

Everyones favourite boot straight from down under had to be on the list and if I am honest, Ugg boots tend not to really do it for me, perhaps due to the large number of fakes out there but they tend to seem very warn in and abused on most people! However in looking into the brand a bit further it gave me the possibility of learning about these new design Ugg boots with the three buttons which does switch it up a bit and highlight that it is in fact different from the thousands of Uggs walking down the road.

Ugg boots, or at least the traditional Ugg boots are not so great for the wet weather but likt the tivoli they are made with a warm fleece which protects the feet from the cold elements its a boot that is for comfort, not hiking a mountain or battling the spring showers.

These boots can also achieve multiple looks by folding down to reveal the elegant fur trim or having high up to keep the calves warm!

2 for 1 isn’t bad when it comes to boots!

At £220.00 it isn’t the most expensive boot for your buck


Bottega Veneta Boxcalf boot

High shine society in these calf height boots!

The boot made from calf leather can be found here for £740.00

If you have not noticed sneakers are currently the way forward for a lot of celebrities that are doing the natural casual relaxed look at the moment so we had to post on the Giuseppe Zanotti italian shoe genius and the creator of these dazzling sneakers retailing at $600 a pair

The silver metallic reptile skinned shoe is not only eye catching but a true modern day “I here to kick butt”  shoe. With bright neon green accents and hints these shoes are sure not to be missed by anyone.

The zip is a major focal point in these shoes as when unzipped it releases even more of the accented colour.

The shoe is also available in the a black and silver version which has been popular with singer Cassie.

Made inItaly these casual but high fashion sneakers are a beautiful option for men and Women!

Beyonce has officially come out of hiding and is now been spotted walking the baby and what we have noticed is that her fashion has transformed to be more a relaxed and rather cool yummy mummy than her traditional sexy look she usually always goes for- which is great, she is embracing this time being a new mum and is doing well staying away from the 10 inch heels her feet are accustomed/subjected to.

Last week the Queen Bee was spotted out with the latest Carter in a rather urban looking outfit choosing sneakers and black woolly hat, sunglasses and a large overcoat very discrete whilst every inch of Baby Blue was covered in her baby wrap.

We have had a lot of request about her mega cool high top trainers / sneakers and we have managed to match them up with the shoes that a lot of celebrities have been wearing including Beyonce herself.

Beyonce’s $640/ £440 black suede sneakers by Isabel Marant have sold out since she has been snapped out in New York over the past few days. However similar colours of the shoe can be purchased from Mytheresa Barneys or Polyvore. Most shops have sold out but similar Isabel Marant sneakers are available..


beyonce's black sneekersThe singer has been spotted in the love on top music video wearing the shoes whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy – she teamed the sneakers with her now signature leotard and a gold sailor hat which worked well for the video keeping focus on the dance moves and not an over complex outfit and as usual her song was a hit.


beyonce's trainers in love on top videoOther celebrities that have given the casual look a try seem to be on the increase, could it be that flat shoes are becoming the new heel? Other than the recent videos Beyonce would never be caught dead in flat shoes so maybe they are the new heel.. (nah, I don’t think so either) but those that have tried it include the classically beautiful Anne Hathaway:

Alicia Keys is one to be very close with urban fashion so we would expect her in something such as these- here she sat with her Husband and son at a basketball game in a pair of the sneakers.

alicia keys isabel marant sneakersMiranda Kerr and son also had a pair of the trainers in red..

The great thing about the sneakers is that they come in a plethora of colours so you can pick one that suits you the most, black is most practical but if your like me and love a bit of colour go wild!

So after bumping into the Brian Atwood website I saw the fabulous shoes created by the Atwood team so becoming inspired this post will be showcasinga top 5 countdown from the latest collection.

Brian is a favourite for several celebrities from Eva Longoria and Megan Fox and you can see why- the shoes are hot!

5. So we have the Ammy– beautiful elegant piece- a work of art really! loving the simple black curl trim and gold stiletto heel and a peep toe which is great for showcasing the latest nail varnish! Perfect for spring summer and autumn and heck they look that good why not wear it in the winter!


4. Claudia Bis : This Golden gorgeous pump is number four on our list- every woman needs a pair of golden shoes be like Dorothy and sparkle in these pumps- these are even great for the office for the day when you want to stand out, why not just combine these with a black skirt suit fitted jacket and some gold shoes -Stand out statement shoes called Claudia Bis

claudia brian atwood3. MANIAC- is the name of these and thats exactly what they portray but in the sense of the cute high fashion maniac!

Clearly for the inner Barbie that all of us lovely ladies have inside (some deeper than others ) but again these could be a really pop out piece that can be added to a black pant suit or a colourful dress but for real impact these patent Manic’s look great with something subtle- may as well let the couture do the talking whilst your doing the walking!

brian atwood maniac pink shoes2. ALESHA another pink choice- I do love the bright coloured shoes these ones are a bit subtle compared to the maniac’s. I am really loving the platform on these shoes paired with the chunky heels- these would be great for a night out added stability in the heel makes these FAB-U-LOUS!

The lovely ABBA’s are my first choice we love it here- peep toe, stiletto heel sling back and a superb large platform heel.

These black pumps are so versatile can be worn with anything- elegant.

The cream outline adds a lovely trim.

Hakes the architectural designer has evolved to become the latest and most unique shoe designers over the past few years, why you may ask, well, his designs instantly cause the viewer to initially raise an eyebrow at the prospect that the abstract “piece of art”  is actually a fully functional shoe.. His years and history in architecture had probably led him to this natural progression to think outside of the box to create these curly and rather curvy yet very mind boggling designer shoes that really do require extra thought when putting them on.

Its probably best to stay away from these after a few glasses of champagne…you have been warned! Pictures to follow and enjoy!

hakes orange mojito shoe

The London born designer came up with the idea from analysing current traditional shoes which have ultimately been a simple and obvious progression and evolution in terms of design from the sandal, Julian Hakes saw to challenge this completely revolutionising and rethinking the footplate and the word ‘SHOE’ as a whole.

“The result of this process was Hakes Mojito – we named it this as it was rather like a twist of lime peel. It is a unique shoe design concept, a single wrapped geometry which starts under the ball of the foot, sweeps over the bridge, then down below the heel before twisting back on itself to provide the support for the heel and ankle”

The shoes are glorious incredibly individual and eye catching and a complete 180 degrees on current shoe fashion and trends, something different from the much loved red heel that everyone seems to wear now. I cannot wait to see these blanket cover the entire celebrity wardrobe.

Now this is signature piece to take note of and his name is:-

Anyone that is ANYONE, or rather, anyone that tries to be Someone would have been snapped in the signature red soled shoe- we all know the red soles are one of the greatest identifiers of luxury elegance and class- it is a prominent and obvious way to show you have the purse to purchased a designer shoe and this simple marketing ploy has been one of the fundamental success for the Louboutin brand.
