My dear elegant ladies, welcome back to my channel.
I am so thrilled to have you here back with me,
and once again we're going to discuss fashion,
and actually fall fashion this time.
For those of you who are new to my channel
my name is Anna, and I run an online
finishing school called School of Affluence.
That's the place where I coach women
on high society, how to become a lady,
and achieve success in the elite circles.
If you want to start this transformation
you simply visit
If you are new to my channel, by the way,
please do subscribe because I will be releasing
plenty of videos on topics like elegant fashion
and high society. But you might not be aware
that I support classic and simple fashion,
meaning I'm not here to talk about trends.
I'm here to talk about sustainable fashion,
classic timeless pieces that you can wear year after year.
I'm simply here to guide you and to educate you
so that you can make better fashion choices
and improve your overall look.
So my personal favorite shoe, when it comes to fall
and winter, and that I use probably all the time
and that is the over knee boots, or the over knee shoe.
I like to wear them usually without heel,
but you can have really nice ones with heels.
If you decide to wear one with a heel,
it's important that you do not make
the pretty woman mistake, if you know what I mean.
You want to always look chic, and you wanna look elegant.
But some girls, of course, do ask me,
can you actually look elegant with the over knee boots?
And I say of course you can.
It's a very elegant piece if only styled correctly.
But luckily, it's not too hard to style.
All you need to do is to just make sure
do not wear it with very high heels
and a dress and then you're just safe.
While wearing over knee boots that are without a heel,
or maybe a thicker heel or a wedge,
then you can definitely pull off
a very sophisticated and sometimes even
edgy and cool look, or just simple glamorous.
It all depends how you style it.
Now number two, we have my also favorite,
riding boots, and that is because
I'm very much into equestrian fashion.
But riding boots is something that everybody must have
in their wardrobe because it is without a heel,
so you can definitely walk in it.
It will last you for years and you can really make yourself
look very sophisticated and with a very type of
heritage wealth approach if you just get a really nice pair.
If you do not like the riding boot approach
but you have very long and slender legs,
you can go for something more like
biker boots or lace-up boots.
But please be aware
that these type of shoes, they do not really work
well on women who do not have a model type body or frame.
It can really easily make a person look a little bit more
bulky and masculine with these type of shoes.
So you really have to take this into account,
your body structure, your body shape when you buy shoes
so that you feel elegant in them,
you feel feminine, and you feel like they suit your style.
In the winter and in fall,
boots is usually what you really wear,
regardless if it's with heels,
or without heels, or what type of variations.
So I definitely recommend to try
and get different pairs so you have options.
Try and get, like I said, the riding boots
without heel, maybe the over knee boots
without heel, and maybe one with heel.
Try and maybe see if you can get
a pair of regular boots that are more for
evening or more dressed up occasions
that have a very nice and sleek heel.
You can then wear them with nice skirts,
or you can maybe wear the with really nice trousers
or even jeans, but still look elegant and sophisticated.
Also, take into account that there are different
heel types for boots, in terms of high heels.
You can have a very thin, like very
provocative type of looking heel,
you can have a thicker heel, you can have a wedge,
but you also have to understand
that not every type of heel will look
dressed up or will look casual.
So depending what you will be using
this type of boots for, you need to really think about,
okay, is this heel appropriate?
Because I feel like that's sometimes
what women do mistakes of.
They don't take the heel into account
when they dress themselves, so they arrive
to a casual daytime gathering in really high heels,
or they go out at night with some really chunky casual heel.
But before I continue ladies, I have created
a cheat sheet called, How To Look Expensive.
And this cheat sheet is really going to save you both
time and headache for when you're shopping
and for when you're dressing yourself,
because this cheat sheet really helps you
how to become more elegant regardless of budget
and shows you the secret tips, and tricks, and hacks
to what it is exactly that makes an outfit
look more expensive than others.
Make sure you get this free cheat sheet
Now I have a little surprise for you,
and you probably would not expect me to put
this one in this video today,
Now how come?
Well, first of all, if you live somewhere
where you have fall and winter
then most likely you're going to experience
a bit of rain during that season.
And what's very chic and elegant
is when you are dressed according to weather conditions
and dressed appropriately basically.
If you have a pair of rain boots,
that means you are dressed for the weather
and you're dressed appropriately.
For instance, I'm not saying you have to go to a meeting
or to a fun gathering wearing rain boots,
but I'm saying if you are casual days,
if you're in the country side, if you're
doing some errands and it's really pouring down
with rain then wearing a very chic
and stylish rain boots can really elevate your look.
And the good thing with rain boots
is that because they are of a very affordable material,
they usually don't cost too much.
Just make sure you chose a pair that are stylish.
You don't want a pair of rain boots
that's going to drag your appearance down.
You want them to compliment you.
And if you do afford buying designer then you can buy
a nice cute pair of designer branded rain boots.
Even if some people might think that it's a waste of money,
but actually it can really add
a little touch to you outfit if the design is chic.
So leaving the boots a little bit behind,
I want to talk a little bit about
the Victorian lace up shoes.
I find them to be quite sophisticated.
They are a little bit kind of Victorian,
old fashion style, and usually we associate them
with a different era than ours.
But I do think that the shoe is very elegant,
especially if you wear them with some really nice skirt
or a dress and you style them well.
I know men really like anything that's lace up
so this is a very classy way of
adding a little bit of lace and spice
to your outfit while still keeping you
protected and warm in fall and winter.
Now lastly, the Jodhpur, and again,
I'm back to my equestrian fashion,
because this is actually where this shoe originated from.
But a lot of women, and actually even men,
wear this shoe as an everyday type of shoe.
And what I like about it is that
it's very stylish, it's very sleek,
and you have many brands like Hermes
that cater for a more sophisticated clientele
that want to dress a little bit more
low key but extremely well dressed.
And I feel like the Jodhpur just really does that to you.
The only thing I would take into account
is to only wear them with trousers.
I wouldn't wear them necessarily
with a dress or a skirt, because they just
don't go together with that.
But for casual occasions
when you wear a trouser, not at night,
the Jodhpur is definitely a good walking shoe to invest in.
Make sure to watch my other video where I talk about
elegant coats for this season.
I hope you have enjoyed this video.
Now I will see you in my next video.
