This season the over the knee boot is the must have shoe (or boot) for the trendy fashionista. But the question becomes how do you wear the over the knee boot without looking too much like one of Robin Hood’s Merry Men?
Over the Knee Boots with Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are not the denims statement of the season but don’t throw them away yet. As Kate Moss proves, they fit perfectly inside a pair of over the knee boots. This is probably how most people will wear their over the knee boots this year, it’s a great way to show off the boot and highlight a skinny little figure.
Over the Knee Boots with Short Skirt
My favorite look for the over the knee boot is pairing it with a short skirt or dress as Hayden Panettiere is wearing above. This slight break of flesh is sexy and stylish and is about as far away from the Merry Men as you can get.
Over the Knee Boots with Shorts
Similar to the short skirt, shorts with over the knee boots will be popular with the celebrity set but probably not the rest of the world. This look is great on Carrie Underwood but would most likely get scoffs and sneers at your favorite restaurant. Shorts are just too much of a summer look while over the knee boots scream winter, unless your winters feel like summers this just isn’t going to fly.
