Over-the-Knee Boots: Conservative or Bohemian?

Wearing over-the-knee boots, also referred to as musketeer boots, requires confidence and swagger.The two schools of thought on these boots is whether to go for the strictly equestrian, conservative type, or the loose fitting, "slouchy" style, favored by the bohemian set. Generally, these boots go well with all kinds of skirts and dresses, as well as tights, in the traditional equestrian style, but not with jeans, in my opinion.

Musketeer Boot by C-Doux

Spanish shoe brands that I follow make the musketeer boot often enough, just like their competitors elsewhere. Every year, as I browse through their winter collections, I single out the models that I like best. This year it's an over-the-knee or "musketeer" boot by C-Doux, a Menorcan label that I really like for its refined and seductive design style. Great quality goes without saying when we are talking about shoes or boots made on the island of Menorca or in mainland Spain.

Francis Montesinos’ Spanish Ballad

My most eagerly anticipated collection of Madrid Fashion Week is always that of the Valencian designer Francis Montesinos. His Fall-Winter 15-16 show at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid was a powerful display of everything that is the most dramatic and confident in the Spanish fashion imagination. I nicknamed this collection "The Spanish Ballad".
