The Perfect Wide-Fit Thigh High Boots

I think I spent most of September-December searching for a pair of good quality thigh high boots in an actual wide fit. Some brands definition of wide fit is an additional 1cm of fabric - sorry to tell you, that is no help to anybody! So, I was a little surprised to find not one, but TWO pairs of boots which fit well, weren't at all expensive and actually fit a chunky leg - YAS.

I'm generally a really big fan of New Look wide fit footwear, but on occasion have found their boots far too small in width. I thought I'd take a wee risk when I saw their selection of suedette thigh highs - which are very much on trend at the moment, and unsurprisingly not available at most plus size retailers. I absolutely ADORE the first pair- which I wore in this look. They are super soft, grey suede with a tie up detail- which definitely helps them stay up! They also have a little bit of stretch in them for added comfort, and at £29.99 (currently on sale) I think they're a total bargain considering the great fit, and quality. They also come in black for anyone on the hunt for a flat pair.

The second pair I've had so much wear out of, and I find them even more comfortable on the calves than my grey pair. I wore them here in this instagram picture, and had a million and one messages asking where they were from! Yet again, they're from Newlook. They go with absolutely every outfit, super comfortable (I find the the heel to be the ideal height) BUT, they tend to slip down my legs relatively easily. A lovely lady on twitter, let me into her secret of using this tape, which has saved me from any slippage since I purchased it. You're welcome! 

I was expecting it to be a much cheerier weather day when I put together this outfit so, I opted for my new 2 in 1 dress, and an old ASOS biker jacket (similar linked below) and some marble Quay sunnies - really, really didn't need them. I've linked all of my accessories below for you too!
