3. Manolo Blahnik, Oculara brown Suede Knee-High Boots
Amini Betty from Amina Muaddi
If you’re a “Sex and the City” fan, you’re probably aware of how into Manolo Blahnik the lead character was that she was hesitant to part with her pair even when a thief was victimizing her! This alone makes clear the hype around the brand. Manolo Blahniks symbolize a classic style that everyone is after these days. The brand went against the current in the 1970s and chose to focus its attention on creating and perfecting the stiletto heel instead of the chunky platforms that were the norm back then. The move surprisingly paid off, and thus, the stiletto has stayed its mainstay till now. If you’re after a more fall-appropriate and warmer colour, we’d like to direct your attention to these gorgeous brown suede knee-high boots from Manolo Blahnik that have the potential to become your new go-to pair. They feature a zip closure and a stiletto high heel that measures 90mm. They combine a natural colour palette with unadorned forms to help you create a perennial wardrobe. Pair these with mini dresses for a casual look. You can pair them with shorter evening dresses for a more elegant look as well.
