Here at Who What Wear, we are very much proponents of timeless fashion trends that will transition from season to season seamlessly, however, we can't pretend that every now and then we don't love a divisive style that triggers debate within fashion circles. This season, it comes in the form of Bottega Veneta's thigh-high boot. High-shine, skintight and oh-so-chunky, this is not one for the fashion fainthearted.
We spotted a similar iteration pounding down the Bottega A/W 20 runway, yet in every look, they were hidden under long layers, so we were never able to appreciate them in their full glory. But they're finally available on Net-a-Porter, and incidentally, one reader has already nabbed a pair from our site this month. All right for some…
They might look totally impractical, but we're slowly coming round to them. I have a pair of thigh-highs that I wear every winter under long dresses and they never fail to keep me toasty warm. Bottega's offering comes sans heel, so you know that they'll be super comfy, plus thanks to the slim fit of the leg, you'll almost certainly be able to fit them under a pair of straight leg jeans (although maybe wait for a very chilly day for that combo).
What do you think? To thigh-high or not to thigh-high? That is the question. Scroll down to see the style and shop similar boots.
We love how the boots look with an oversize knitted dress.
