Am I allowed to wear chunky knee high boots that are baggy around the calf??
They are these Dr Martens what I would class as 'bovver boots', which are great udner jeans etc BUT I need the boots to work with a skirt too. I think they look like welly boots because they are so big around my calves or am I just behind in fashion?? Please reply urgently as I need to send them back if I'm not keeping them
Skirt wise it would either be the usual denim thing (just below knee or mid thigh over leggings kind of thing I guess, or some equally manly skirt. I'm just trying to thing of things that might work with boots that would also work under jeans.....!
I'm not an expert at skirts at all but thought that I should probably make the effort and that boots would help me do that. Mmmm - this is a bit of a minefield isn't it?!?! Oh crap - I can tell that I'm going to go out looking like a tit! Please can someone add some links to pictures to help me find an acceptable look??? I'm 38, size 10 now and about 5'8 with VERY short dark hair .
They look a bit stiff on but are really comfy and suspect that they just need breaking in to get the soft look / creases in all the right places etc.
