Knee-high Chic for Winter

Winter has come, and it's time to put away the chic summer wedges in favour of something a little more robust, but not less sophisticated – the classic winter boot. While last year's OTK, or 'Over The Knee' boots have made a surprising return to catwalks and the collections of continental fashion houses and ladieswear wholesalers alike for winter this year, their younger, simpler sibling has been turning heads internationally. Not quite the verbal mouthful of their taller counterparts, and certainly missing the avant-garde audacity, the chic knee-high winter boot is the casual footwear must-have of the season.

The elegance of Sixties glamour, this season's hottest trend, makes it's mark with powerful feminine silhouettes, ladylike and sophisticated. Legendary fashion houses both continental and British such as Yves Saint Laurent and Jaeger London have seized the knee-high boot as a staple of the look and there's no doubt that wholesale clothing manufacturers and ladieswear wholesalers worldwide will be quick to follow where they lead. Casting aside the reactionary fetish-trend audacity and avant-garde movement restriction of the 'Over The Knee' designs, the boot opens up a variety of infinitely more playful options for styling, without sacrificing that elegance, sophisticated appeal.

At Prada, designers flex their creative muscles with a collection of bright graphic tees and pinafores, paired with knee-high boots in glamorous, eye-catching snakeskin. Meanwhile, Gucci's catwalk boasts high-octane glamour with a collection of knee-high leather boots paired with voluminous fur coats for a timeless look of luxury, romance and sultry sophistication, all in this season's understated neutral palette.

For a simple indoor look, the boots can be paired with neutral jeggings or leggings and a classic dolman-sleeved top for chic sophistication in a pinch, or add a tailored leather jacket for a more grungy, city-slicker look. At night, the timeless little black dress is offset to winter perfection by a classic pair of knee-high boots, adding one of this season's warming great coats for venturing outdoors, all available from wholesaler clothing manufacturers and ladieswear wholesalers worldwide.

Perfecting a look of winter chic is infamously harder to pull off than it looks, but this season's knee-high boots and great coats combination have shaken the fetish connotations of last season's taller iteration to be heralded by top-name designers, fashion critics, wholesale clothing manufacturers and ladieswear wholesalers alike as a quick-fix for every woman's winter needs, providing instant winter chic, and thanks to wholesaler clothing manufacturers, that's instant winter chic at a bargain.
