Along with the rising popularity of sock boots comes the possibility for tons of different colour options. I think I’ve seen over the knee boots in just about every colour imaginable lately, but these bright purple ones by ASOS have to be the brightest, most in-your-face ones yet. I mean, have YOU ever seen boots this colour before? Because I don’t think I have, and that’s kind of a shame, really, because PURPLE BOOTS, people: I mean, look at them!
Now, I’m sure this probably goes without saying to those who know me well, but as much as I like to look at these, there’s absolutely no chance of my ever actually wearing them. I DO love – and wear – this style of boot, true, but purple isn’t a colour I’d get a lot of use out of (I’m just imagining it with any of my green dresses here, and trying my best not to gag…), and I also know perfectly well that I lack the necessary attitude to pull this kind of look off, as much as it pains me to admit it!
Still, you are not me, obviously, and if you reckon you CAN rock this look, now’s your chance to do it. ASOS have chosen to style these in a particularly bold/crazy kind of way, with bright yellow mini dress (Or is it a top? I have absolutely no idea…), which creates a very comic book/ 1960s-vision-of-the-future look – and I mean that as a compliment, seriously – but if you’re not quite brave enough to clash colours to this extent, I guess black, navy or grey would be the safer option – and hey, at least no one could accuse any of those colours of being even remotely “boring” when paired with these boots!
