Yesterday I attended Net-A-Porter Fall 2009 trends presentation and I have some bad news for you.
Thigh High Boots are going to be hot this Fall.
The thought of thigh high boots does send shivers down my spine and evokes images of Julia Roberts walking down Rodeo Drive in “Pretty Woman”, but the Net-A-Porter team assure us this trend – if worn right – will be one of the most exciting trends of the season.
One of their suggestions was to wear the boots with an oversized sweater or blazer making sure the tops of the boots are not seen.
I put one of the Stella McCartney thigh high boots against me, and noted that these boots are really high.
I’m 5ft 11ins tall with 34ins legs and the boots reached my hip.
They should really be thought of as leggings with a heel. I’m now seriously considering trying this trend.
Net-A-Porter are always adding new designers every season. This season we can look forward to Camilla Skovgaard heels which are a current favourite of Halle Berry.
Kimberly Ovitz will also be added. She designed the cut-out dress worn by AnnaLynne McCord at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.
Ashish will be creating an exclusive line for Net-A-Porter. The designer created the stunning silver dress above.
And many more new designers such as Belstaff, Marios Schwab, Valentino, Tabitha Simmons and Haute Hippie will be added.
I was given a Look Book of everything that will be added to the site this season, and here are a few of the pieces we have seen on celebs.
I will be refreshing Net-A-Porter every Monday and Wednesday morning until I get my hands on Mary-Kate Olsen’s Alexander Wang Coco duffel bag.
Lauren Conrad’s Moschino jacket was very interesting up close as the silver details were all safety pins.
Zoe Saldana’s Emilio Pucci dress and Kylie’s Balmain dress are sure to sell-out within minutes.
I will be sure to let you know when these and many other pieces are added to Net-A-Porter, so keep checking my favourites and Shop Her Closet.
