Steal the Spotlight with Thigh-High / Over-the-Knee Boots

Although over-the-knee boots (OTKB) conjure up images of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, when worn correctly they can look sexy, but not trashy. Whether they are thigh-high or slightly above the knee, leather or suede, flat or stiletto-heeled, you can wear them and look stylish.
The tricky part is: what to wear with OTKB. Obvious choices are of course dresses and skirts that fall about 1-3 inches above the top of the boots. You can wear tights, leggings, thigh-high socks (in a complimenting color) or even your skinny jeans. Be sure never to wear OTKB if you are under 5-foot-4 or with loose-fitting pants, boot cut or boyfriend-cut denim.
These boots have become a hot item for celebrities on the red carpet and in their daily routine too. Everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Blake Lively to Kate Moss and even the Kardashians has worn OTKB recently.

Update your look with a chic Vest

Vests are definitely a must-have fashion accessory again. Although they have been first developed for mens wear, it seems that with time they have become a unisex fashion item.
Stylish and with a variety of designs, vests can be a perfectly suitable fashion item for any occasion. They can upgrade the look of any outfit creating a very casual chic appearance. Try to mix and match vests with t shirts (for a casual chic look), blouses (for a stylish ultra feminine look), dresses (for a bohemian approach) and mini skirts or shorts (for a sexy look). Pants and vests go perfectly together; you can choose jeans, leggings or even classic pants. You can try classic vests, embelished, denim, leather, edgy, preppy, ruffled, vintage or  fur - my favorite ones.
Celebrities seem to have fallen in love with vests as they seem to find perfect ways to incorporate them into their oufits. Celebrity fashion is a great source of ispiration for me when it comes to fashion style, so inspire yourself from your favorite celebrity.

The inspiration for my post (well, for the male part) was the greek singer Sakis Rouvas, who wore vests with every outfit the other night. So, all you men listen up, men look hot in vests (especially JT).
