I love over the knee boots! I bought my first pair in 2004 and still wear them today! They were a thigh high black leather pointed toe stiletto pair by Collin Stuart from Victoria’s Secret. The trick to wearing over the knee boots without looking like you stepped off the set of Pretty Woman (and not the classed up polka dot wearing Julia) is to show as little skin as possible on the leg. Have your hem come close to meeting the top of the boots as shown here. Another option is to wear something long with a high slit that opens just to the top of the boot. Option three- layer the boots over thick tights or leggings which allows you to take your hem height up a few inches but by all means to not go bare leg+mini skirt! It’s already a sexy shoe so there is no need to be overtly sexy with the rest of the look! Feel free to pile on a chunky knit or an oversize coat! My personal rule is to have no more than a 4″ break between boot and hem if it is a bare leg look. Feel free to experiment with these fab shoes and see what fun looks you can create!
