Why You Must Have A Pair Of Over The Knee Boots

You know that scene in The Devil Wears Prada, when Anne Hathaway walks out in those delicious black leather, over the knee boots? That’s exactly why you need a pair. Is there anything sexier, yet oddly demure and European, than a slightly risqu’ pair of over the knee boots? (The correct answer here is clearly a ‘no.’)
Think about that oomph that your favorite pair of soft brown leather or patent black knee-high boots gives you when you strut down the street. Add a little above the knee action, and that oomph becomes a whole new attitude. While not all of us are ready to drop a couple thousand on a pair of Manolo Blahnik boots, like Anne’s, you can certainly find the same look for less. (In some cases, much less!) Check out Seychelles for a pair of classically styled, flat over the knee suede boots in a variety of colors’all for less than one hundred dollars.
If you are willing to spend a little more, Alexandra Neel should be your choice for over the knee boots’complete with Italian leather and the comfort of your favorite flats, her ‘Barbara’ flat is simply fantastic. With classic Italian leather and extraordinary care to the details and construction of your shoe, this over the knee boot is worth your money. For those of you with a penchant of trendy and a taste for unique touches, Love Moschino’s Fiocco suede, three and a half inch over the knee boot is definitely for you. Available in both black and dark brown, the zip up boot flaunts its zipper in a swerving line up the boot for a unique and daring twist.
Now, I know you may be wondering about how to pair these fabulous boots with an everyday outfit in a fun and appropriate way. Luckily the trend in skinny jeans/riding inspired pants perfectly suits, without overdoing, the look of over the knee boots. As a city savvy version of the classic riding outfit, you cannot go wrong with a pair of skinny pants tucked into your over the knee boots, and a loose, flowing top to offset the form fitted lower lines. Another option would be to pair this look with a longer soft (think cotton or linen) top with a structured, short jacket’giving you some weight to the top to balance out the lines of the over the knee boots. You can even pair over the knee boots with a skirt (just above the knee, or knee length skirt being optimal, but outliers always exist!) A tiered cotton, floral-inspired dress is a lovely palate to create. But, pair your favorite over the knee boots with your trendy, fashion-forward mind, and you can take them anywhere.
Rule of thumb: Don’t be shy! Over the knee boots are most definitely wearable and appropriate for everyday use (think a nice dinner out with the girls, an art opening, or a dinner date.) Flats are fabulous for everyday, but the heeled over the knee boot definitely adds spice and fun to any outfit’particularly punchy with a mono-toned, neutral outfit. Buy, wear, and enjoy!
