It's definitely not a look everyone could pull off - or would even want to - but if you're a fan of thigh-boots, now could be a good time to buy a pair, with quite a few designer offerings around. Of the three pairs pictured, Christian Louboutin's Black suede thigh highs are the most expensive, at £920, while Stella McCartney's Stretch over the knee boots come in at £465 (despite looking like the cheapest of the three, I think), and Delman's lower budget offerings are $332.

We talked last week about how very tall boots can work well with floaty dresses and other, less structured pieces. Would you splash the best part of $1000 on such statement footwear, though?
